Another blogger introduced me to Pixiestock through the Content Calendar Bundle, and It’s AWESOME. She also has beautiful stock photography, and that’s one of the first things I recommend new bloggers and freelance writers invest in when they can.
Using the same old photos as everyone else is no way to stand out in the crowd. Gorgeous unique images are an inexpensive way to upgrade the look of your blog and graphics.
Here are the Black Friday deals Pixiestock is offering.
Lifetime Stock Photography Membership, which is usually closed, opens for just seven days for $597. If you buy the lifetime membership, you never have to pay again. There will be two payment plans available to help split the payments up.
When it comes to stock photography, I have to admit, SheBold stock photos are my favorite. Jasmine’s photos drew me with their bright colors and an incredible selection. But she doesn’t just have colorful colored images; she has feminine, elegant, light, dark, any kind you can think of.
Jasmine also has oodles of fun and pretty graphic templates. Once you join the membership, you get unlimited downloads (thankfully because I can get lost in her photos options). With a simple and versatile photo license, this is a no-brainer.
