As a blogger or business owner, you often don’t realize how much of a role model you can be for people. You can genuinely bring a smile to someone’s face or enhance a reader’s self-esteem using these images in a positive and accepting way, and showing there’s so much more than just one “normal.”

Now more than ever it’s a time to celebrate how different and unique we all are, and in using these images on your website you can highlight the human body in its most natural and beautiful forms; there really is so much variation in how we look, and that’s not always represented online as well as it could be!

Before we get started, some housekeeping:

  • Don’t forget to check the licensing, usage, and attribution requirements before using images from stock photo websites; even images from the same site can have different restrictions.
  • When using free photo websites, try to trace the photo back to the original photographer where possible, as some photographers have their work stolen and added to free sites without their knowledge.
  • Please be respectful and mindful of the context you use these photos in, especially when using recognizable photos of people.

Side note – If you’re using stock photos on your website, don’t forget to optimize them first!
