For a while now we have received feedback that you would love to see more lifestyle stock images in the SC Stockshop to include in your branding. Images that go hand-in-hand with the flatlays we offer, but that feature more elaborate spaces (such as offices and homes) and include more human elements in them. We have read every email, direct message, and survey response regarding this need and have been brainstorming a solution for how to meet this need that we see in the industry.
Well today, my patient friends, is the day you’ve been waiting for!
We are so excited to announce that we will be teaming up with two incredible creatives, photographer Laura Foote of Laura Foote Photography and stylist Megan Martin of Megan Martin Creative, to bring new Lifestyle Collections to the SC Stockshop!
Read on to hear what Laura and Megan have to say about the project and to meet these talented ladies!
“We are so excited to bring the SC Stockshop to "life!" Our goal for the new lifestyle section of the shop is to give you the same high-quality, editorial style imagery you have come to love and blending it with a more lifestyle approach to give you a well-rounded library of images to use to elevate your brand! Get ready to see spaces from chic offices to corner lounges and all the pretty details in between for various brand color palettes and skin tones! We can't wait to see how you use the upcoming collections to welcome customers to your brand's online home!” - Laura & Megan
So exciting right!?! Let us introduce you to these two friends of ours:
Laura Foote is a photographer who specializes in branding, commercial and wedding portraiture. She has been featured by brands like Lauren Conrad, Emily Ley, and Glitter Guide. Additionally, Laura holds a Master's degree in education and the intersection of learning/teaching/mentoring other creatives is the core of her heart. Laura calls Tampa, FL home where she lives with her high school sweetheart, Jordan, teenage foster daughter, Kathy, and arriving-in-May- baby girl, McCartney. Any day that ends with good food, red wine, and conversations that go 10,000 feet deep are the best in her book!
Megan Martin is a writer, speaker, graphic designer and photo stylist at Megan Martin Creative, a design & lifestyle studio producing relevant educational and inspiring content for creatives and mompreneurs. When she's not running her creative business, traveling to conferences or flipping homes with family, you can find Megan living out her biggest dream of a joyful life with her husband Jeremy and two little girls, Kennedy and Esley! Megan was also one of the very first SC Stockshop users when the shop originally opened in 2014!

With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser's business.
Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser's needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.
Shay Cochrane remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.
The Purchaser may not use SC Stockshop images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.
These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.
As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!
Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!
By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.
It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.
Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited! This is not meant to scare you.
If you have any questions or concerns about the legal use of our images please don't hesitate to shoot us an e-mail! We don't bite!
