The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time for holiday stock photos, plus… pumpkin spice lattes (which are taking over my IG feed) and eating chili all the time (where are all my chili fans at?) We’re entering a season of gathering, which is a perfect time for Thanksgiving and Christmas stock photos. Introducing the Gathering Collection (isn’t that name fitting? 😉) The Gathering Collection is perfect for sharing your holiday inspired blog posts, connecting with your audience on social media, creating eye-catching product mockups and Pinterest graphics, and highlighting your Christmas promotions and sales. 

The Gathering collection is also perfect for all year use especially for brands and business’s who have neutral brand colors and who’s focus could be food, gatherings, family, wedding planning, and realty.

I created this collection with a neutral, minimal palette in mind. It’s simple, engaging, and warm. This collection is full of styled flatlay and lifestyle images. The Gathering Collection includes a total of 25 hi-res images, with 19 vertical images and 6 horizontal images.

THE AUTUMN COLLECTION: PIN IT TO WIN IT!

Autumn Lifestyle, Mockups & Desktop Stock Images (PIN IT TO WIN IT!)

Autumn arrived early in New York and it was a welcome surprise. I’m sure we have a few more hot days ahead, but this past weekend and these past few days have felt like Fall; with overcast skies and cool temps. And with this weather it’s absolutely perfect for the launch of the Autumn Collection.

I wanted this collection to have that same cool outside, warm fuzzy feeling inside Autumn feel. Full of warm brown and red tones paired with soft whites, it’s a perfect combination for Fall. This collection is full of styled desktops, lifestyle images, and mockups.  As always, I do my best to round out each collection so that images can be used in a variety of places like Instagram, blog posts, Pinterest, newsletters, social banners, social ads and more.

This collection has 20 vertical images, perfect for lifestyle posts and Pinterest (my favorite social platform for driving website traffic) plus each image is easily cropable for Instagram. It also has 7 horizontal images. Scroll through the gallery below to view the entire Autumn Collection.

5 PODCASTS FOR LIFE & BUSINESS

5 PODCASTS FOR LIFE & BUSINESS

Listening to podcasts is new to me. This is the first year that I started to really listening to podcasts on a consistent bases. I started with The Goal Digger Podcast, then moved onto Building a Story Brand, then stumbled unto This Sounds Fun, then added Business Boutique and the minute I hear about another possibly good podcast, I add it to my list.

Here's how I feel about podcasts, find the ones that YOU really love. I've listened to podcasts that weren't my favorite so I don't listen to them. And then I find podcasts that I really love and that's what I'm sharing today. 4 of my favorite podcasts and 1 that I'm about to test out because I need it, haha! I also really love podcasts that are more conversational, funny, and that teach me stuff, versus typical business-speak podcasts... if that makes sense. I kind of check out if a podcast immediately starts out with Instagram strategy. We all need Instagram strategy, but, you know, give it to me in a funny hilarious way. So, here we go...

Business Boutique with Christy Wright: This is my go-to podcast most days. Honesty, I just really like Christy Wright. I think she's funny. I think she genuinely wants to help women grow their businesses and she provides actionable steps to help you grow your business right now. Every day steps to get you one step closer to your dream. 

Building A Story Brand with Donald Miller: I started listening to Building a Story Brand after I read Donald's book. His book helped me understand my brand's message. I'm still in the process of flushing out that message, but Donald's guidance has been fundamental and I love his podcast. Lots of business advice at your fingertips in a conversational way. 

That Sounds Fun with Annie F Downs: I follow Annie on Instagram and listen to her podcast simply for fun. She's funny, she loves Jesus, and she makes you feel like you could BFFs. 

Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield: Amy's podcast is on my must-listen list. My marketing game always needs help. I am on the struggle bus when it comes to marketing and I definitely need marketing made easy in my life, haha! 

Rise Podcast with Rachel Hollis: I just started listening to Rachel Hollis and following her on Instagram. I appreciate how honest she is and I think she's funny. I actually heard about her through Christy's podcast. I basically hear about all other podcasts through Christy's podcasts, haha! I also just added her new book, Girl, Wash Your Face to my must-read list. 

If I was to sum up my favorite type of podcasts they would probably be funny or they would be with people who like to crack jokes and laugh, even if they are simply cracking jokes for themselves. I feel like that's what I do, I'm just cracking jokes to make myself laugh, even if no one else thinks they're funny! Tell me your favorite type of podcasts to listen to and who your favorites are! Share below! xoxo. Samantha
