There is no question about it, product photography will make or break your Etsy shop. Beautiful, eye-catching product photos sell. Bottom line: bad product photography just doesn’t. Yes, you need quality products, Etsy SEO, great customer service, etc. But none of those things matter if no one wants to click on your product photos. Your listings MUST have photos that draw people in. Photos that make people feel like YOUR ITEM will give them the lifestyle they want; YOUR PRODUCT is the perfect gift for their recipient; YOUR LISTING is just the item they’ve been searching for. The good news is, you don’t have to be a trained photographer to have beautiful product photos and you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. This post will show you where to find gorgeous mock-up photos for your Etsy shop products. If you sell mugs, tote-bags, makeup bags, t-shirts, yoga mats, art prints, invitations, printables, phone cases . . . this post is for you.
TL/DR: Hautestock.com is my all-time favorite place for gorgeous mock-up photos and stylish stock photography. (pssst…all of the images in this post are from hautestock )

Where to Find Gorgeous Mock-up Photos for your Etsy Shop
I create mock-ups in a variety of different ways. I use programs like Over and sites like Placeit (Placeit is especially great for tshirt, pillow and clothing mockups) I also sometimes purchase a beautiful mockup photo from an Etsy seller. Sometimes, I find mock-up bundles on Creative Market
But my ALL TIME FAVORITE place to easily find gorgeous, feminine product mockups that I just KNOW will attract the kind of customers I want to serve, is HauteStock. When I discovered HauteStock’s huge library of stylish stock and mock-up photos, it literally changed my business. My Etsy shop became more cohesive. My listings looked more attractive and my shop looked more professional. My sales increased dramatically.
Not only that, but Hautestock saves me a ton of time! The time I spend searching for the perfect mock-up has drastically decreased. As has the time I spent creating them. I also began using their beautiful stock photos for some of my social media. Now I don’t have to spend hours hunting for the perfect photos or creating the perfect quotes. Hautestock frees up time to create (and sell!) more products and makes it easier to create marketing materials and engaging posts that convert into sales, clicks or followers.
I first dipped my toe in the water with HauteStock by downloading their 21 free stock photos , but it wasn’t long before I was hooked and signed up for a membership. For me, the monthly plan works really well, but you might be more interested in the quarterly or yearly plan depending on your needs. With the monthly plan, I’m able to choose from their library of over 4,000 high quality stock photos and design assets and download up to 25 each month. If I don’t use all 25 credits, they roll over to the next month (one of my favorite features for sure!)
I am able to search for images by color, topic, product, holiday. . . or look through their curated lists and collections to find just what I need. The images are easy to download and I can quickly add any of my own designs or elements for my shop listings, blog or social media. And new collections of photos come out weekly so there’s always something fresh, new and relevant.
It says it right on the Hautestock website: “Get more likes, clicks, and sales with the right stock photos” and they live up to their claim. The mock-up photos and styled stock photos have made a huge difference in my business and I am confident they will for your business too!
If you’re not ready to jump into a membership, start by downloading your 21 free stock photos. And be sure take a look at the Hautestock blog for a ton of free content that can help you with your business.
Oh! One more reason I love hautestock — women owned businesses are my jam! We tend to like to help each other out and make life easier for one another and the women behind hautestock have done just that.
