Meet Better Than Stock, one of the many passion projects of the Business Betties.

Business Betties was born in 2012, brought into the world by photographer Suzanne Larocque, and graphic designer Allison Biggs. We’d both had it with playing small and the stiff, fake, and inauthentic brands that had become the status quo in the landscape of small business.

Our goal with Business Betties has always been to help women become successful entrepreneurs in the most authentic way possible, and that goal has seeped it’s way into Better Than Stock as well.

We’re here to help you, the social media maven, the blogger, the entrepreneur, add value to the world. With years of experience developing brands for clients both online and off, we’ve pinpointed the common roadblocks to creating beautiful and successful visuals, then built Better Than Stock to help you bust through them.

No more spending hours sifting through stock photo sites. No more worrying about the legalities of licensing images (and the cease and desist orders that come when you don’t do this properly). No more spending all your pretty pennies on a single image.

Better Than Stock and the Betties have your back.
