They say old habits die hard. I'm not sure who "they" are... but they're right. While I no longer photograph weddings, I still love to create beautiful imagery that tells a story. Lovely Little Stock is a part of my larger graphic design business, Lovely Little Creative. Each image is carefully curated and designed to be used in a variety of ways. I hope you enjoy using these images as much I enjoy creating them.
A: All LLS images are delivered to you as .jpg images.
A: All LLS images are delivered as web-resolution images (72 dpi). This makes them perfect for digital screens like computers, tablets and mobile devices. Web resolution images also load faster and won't slow down your user's experience when you use them on your website. They're also appropriately sized for social media platforms and won't take up too much space on your computer or mobile device.
A: Sorry friend. Your access starts, when your subscription starts. You have access to the image bundles for the months you are subscribed. You do not have access to images from months prior to your subscription... so don't miss out, start your subscription now!
A: Nope, not all of them... but most. In the future we may consider expanding into other types of styled stock, but for now images are primarily focused on essential oils from Young Living. If you have a particular type of product or item you would like to see featured, we'd love to hear from you. Please click on CONTACT above and send us an email with your suggestions/requests.
A: That's up to you. All LLS images are edited to be crisp, clean and neutral... which means they'll look great if you don't edit/alter them at all. But if you like to use photo editing apps or apply filters to your images to match the style and brand of your business, these images are perfect for that! Also, spend some time cropping images in different ways... you'll find with most images you can create 3 - 4 great crops from just a single image... literally quadrupling the number of images you can use each month!
A: In your initial subscription email you'll see a link for a file containing your access link and password to view and download your images. Because the total combined size each month is approximately 40 MB it's simply too big to email the entire lovely folder to you. So you have two options for accessing your images. You can use one or both.
Click on the Dropbox link and view the images using your Internet browser like Chrome or Safari... or use the Dropbox app on your mobile device.
Inside of Dropbox you can view all of the images gallery style and either download images one-at-a-time or download the included folders to your computer or device.
* You DO NOT have to have a Dropbox account to utilize this option, but if you do you can save the files easily to your own Dropbox account.
Click on the link provided in the email you receive and the Image Bundle zip file will begin to auto download to your computer/device... keeping in mind that the total file size is approximately 40MB and you will need to unzip it to access the images.
Here's the deal: when you (the user) visits our website (stock.lovelylittlecreative.com) the images you are viewing of stock photography are the work product of the Lovely Little Creative, Elizabeth Langford-Cobo (Hello! That's me). Should you happen to screenshot an image and use it to promote your business by say sharing it to Instagram, you unfortunately are stealing... even if you add a cute little icon of a camera and tag @lovelylittlestock in your caption, you are still stealing. And I know your mama taught you better. By visiting this site and/or subscribing to a monthly or annual subscription you are agreeing to use only the images you've paid for and only for your own personal/business use. #nosharesies
I probably shouldn't have to tell you that sharing your download link with your bestie (or anyone else, even your mom) is also in fact stealing... but just in case you didn't already know: sharing your download link with your bestie (or anyone else, even your mom) is also in fact stealing. I work very hard to take lovely images for my subscription service. I take these images because I love to take photos. I take these images because I am an entrepreneur and I want to have a successful business selling stock photography (because my feet can't handle shooting 10 hour weddings anymore). I also take these images because I love to help others grow their businesses. I hope the images I create bless you and help your business endeavors to flourish. I source and create lovely props and I put a lot of time, financial resources and effort into my imagery. This is not a hobby. This is a legit business, so I'm asking you to be a legit person.
When you subscribe monthly or annually, Lovely Little Stock (a Lovely Little Creative creation) is agreeing to deliver to you 30 (or more) web-resolution images delivered digitally no later than 11:59pm on the first day of the month (following a successful payment). These images are not appropriate for printing as they are not high resolution. They are of course shot in high resolution, but high resolution images are much larger in size and slow down your website; users (and Google) don't like this. NERD ALERT: Images shared to Instagram are automatically sized down to 1080pixels on the long edge. Lovely Little Stock images are 1200 - 3400 pixels on the long edge to accomadate a variety of screen sizes and social media platforms. This means they will be automatically sized down by Instagram but will also work for your website and other social media platforms. If you are in need of high resolution images for printing please contact Lovely Little Stock directly and we can discuss your needs.
The images you receive as part of your subscription bundle can be used in your marketing, advertising and personal networking efforts. You can edit, alter, apply filters, crop, add text overlays, etc.. Make them fit your style and brand. It's awesome if you want to give photo credit on social media to @lovelylittlestock, but you certainly don't have to. The images you receive as part of your subscription bundle are not exclusive to you, meaning you don't have the exclusive rights to use them. Other subscribers will receive the same stock images... but just like you, they will alter/edit those images to fit their brand and style... so don't worry about your images looking just like everyone else's. You do not have the right to resell, distribute or claim the image(s) as your own creation. You have the right to use them, but Lovely Little Creative maintains the copyright.
So keep it simple. Use only the images you have paid for through a Lovely Little Stock monthly or annual subscription (or images that have been given to you as part of a special promotion created by Lovely Little Stock with permission to use them for free). Speaking of money... I chose $9/month and $89/year, because it's outrageously affordable, maybe even "stupid low." Honestly, I hope that the low price for a helpful, timesaving, quality product will remind people it doesn't cost very much to do the right thing. And like I've taught my daughter, "you're never wrong to do the right thing." So be awesome and honest like my 9 year old. Subscribe. Don't steal. Treat people well. And remember if you're still reading this, you're my kind of nerdy. #staycoolfriend
but you probably won't like it when our suggestion is to cancel your Netflix subscription - unless of course you're stealing that from your parents.
If you can't afford your styled stock subscription Lovely Little Stock may be able to help;
