It’s very important to have a blog that is professional and attractive. Visitors to your blog are more likely to return if your blog was appealing to them. Brands are also more likely to work with you if they like how your blog looks. The theme and fonts you use for your blog are very important in achieving a professional and pretty blog. The photos you use on the blog also play a big role in how your blog looks.

In converting my blog (it was formerly a book blog. You can read more about my decision to do that in my blog update post), I realized I had a problem. I didn’t have pictures to use for my banners and share-able images. I wanted my blog to look professional and feminine and since I don’t have a decent camera, I knew I needed a place to get excellent, free stock photos from.

So, I went on the holy grail for blogging and images, Pinterest and I began my search. And I found one website that offers hundreds of free stock photos with great quality!


Introduction to Ivory Mix

That site is Ivory Mix and I’m so happy I found it! The photos are generally minimalist and bright with touches of colors and many of them contain objects that can even inspire your next post! It’s the blogger dream manifested in real life!

Benefits of using Ivory Mix

  • Ivory Mix offers more than 550 free stock photos available for download. They are all very clear and look professional.
  • Not so many bloggers know about this site. So, the pictures aren’t that common. This is a very important point for me because I don’t like making a graphic and seeing it on another blogger’s page the next day. I can share my posts and I don’t have to worry if the image has been seen a thousand times already
  • The photos are available in light pastel, neutral and there are also free colorful and creative stock photos
  • There are lots of photos for popular blog niches like mom and parent blogs, the finance niche and free Stock Photos for health, fitness, and wellness brands
  • The photos have plenty of themes that are great for specific blog posts. I’ll talk more on that and other points later.
  • Ivory Mix photos come in the wide rectangle or square banner format and many of them are also long, vertical images that are great for Pinterest! 
  • Another incredible thing about Ivory Mix is the size of the photos. You get very, very clear and professional photos for your blog that are usually less than 2 megabytes! This means that when you put them on your blog, they don’t spend a long time loading (thus, frustrating your visitors). It also means that when you share them on social media that have a size limit on photos, the quality remains the same! How awesome is that?


Are you interested now? Well, I hope so because to get those awesome photos, all you have to do is sign up! When you sign up, you get an exclusive password to access the database of free stock photos with 550+ free images. You then download the ones you want from the stock photo library and they’re saved forever on your device. Also by signing up, you get 4 new stock photos every month. Sometimes, even more than that! I got 10 free photos in my mail for this month! 


The Ivory Mix Shop

Now, if you want more options than the 550+ photos provided that anyone can use,  there’s a Stock Photo Shop that you can buy images from. The photos come in bundles and you can buy bundles of images from $15 to $30. Some bundles are so cheap that you can get 70+ styled stock photos for $35 (that’s 2 professional photos for $1!). Trust me, I’ve done a lot of research on stock photos. You won’t find cheaper anywhere else. You can search the shop by category or niche or browse by colour (which is great if you want to brand your blog or Pinterest). My personal fave is the social media quotes section which has bundles made of motivational quotes and the like! If you’re a mental health blogger, that’ll be great for you!


Want Access to Everything? Join a Membership Plan!

There are AMAZING Stock Photo Membership plans apart from the free plan which are perfect if you want great quality for your money!

There’s the elite membership plan and as an elite member, you get unlimited downloads of everything in the Ivory Mix shop (under the free plan, you have to buy them as I mentioned above), 100+ new photos every month, 30+ social media quote graphics and 2400+ stock photos and graphics. These photos and graphics are valued at over $3000 but go for the incredible price of $37 every 3 months ($12.3 per month and about $0.02 cents per image).

There is also a VIP membership even bigger than the elite member option available. This option gives everything in the elite member option in addition to access to a new single image download library and 60 exclusive bonus photos in various blogging categories. It’s even cheaper than the elite member plan at $107 per year ($8.91 per month). You honestly won’t find a stock photo plan that cheap anywhere else!


So, what are you waiting for? Go sign up to Ivory Mix and get excellent-quality, free stock photos for your blog!

    Oh, wow! I had no idea about this website – I’ll have to check it out! Although I’m currently using my own photos, I know I’m going to run out soon and I’m too lazy to take more, so this will be great! I can already tell that the photos are good just by looking at the picture you’ve shared. I also know how you feel when it comes to finding stock photos on other blogs. I use them for my Pinterest graphics and I always try to find ones that I think are less common. Thank you for sharing x

      I never take photos to use on my own blog. I don’t have a professional camera or the time to edit the pictures I take πŸ˜… Stock photos are a great alternative. I’m glad you found my post helpful. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog Alicia πŸ’–

    To be honest, I have never used a stock photo on my blog! When I first started out, I was really worried about all the laws to do with copyrighted photos and whatnot and didn’t actually really know what a stock photo was. As time went on, I really enjoyed producing all of my own photos anyway so it wasn’t too much of an issue! I can see why people would use them, they’re great for filling out posts if you haven’t got the time, equipment or maybe even just don’t enjoy taking photographs yourself. Sounds like a great source for bloggers and content creators πŸ™‚

    I love IvoryMix! I started with the free pictures, and eventually paid for a membership because I was so impressed. The only issue I have sometimes is that they don’t really fit with my blog colour scheme, so it makes choosing an image hard, but they are all gorgeous and particularly great for Pinterest!

      Yayy! Thanks a lot Ruth! I’m not on a paid membership yet but I’m going to upgrade at on point. I agree that they’re AMAZING for Pinterest. Thanks for commenting πŸ€—

    I use Pixabay for when I need a stock image instead if taking my own photos. I had never heard of this site before. It’s so hard to find images that us bloggers can use with no worries.

    Oh this sounds awesome and really helpful! I don’t use stockphotos very much anymore because I like taking photos, but I still occasionally go looking for some and I’ll definitely bookmark this site!
