did you know?
The average small business owner posts 1-3 times a day on Instagram, 5-7 days a week.
If you are doing the math, that's 7-21 new images a week and as many as 84 NEW images a month needed to stay front-of-mind with your ideal client on social media.
As a business owner you have WAY better (and more profitable!) things to do than snapping and editing images all day for social media.
That's why we created Social Squares.
“This is the cure-all for those days that you stare at the blank post and wonder what on earth you could possibly share. Clean, curated, and ready for you to tell a story!”

We get you.
IT'S NOON ON A TUESDAY AND AS YOU WRANGLE LEFTOVERS OUT OF THE BACK OF THE FRIDGE WITH ONE HAND, YOU ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY FRANTICALLY SCROLLING THROUGH YOUR CAMERA ROLL FOR AN IMAGE TO POST TO INSTA WITH THE OTHER.
WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE EVERYONE ELSE HAS AN ENDLESS STREAM OF IMAGE CONTENT AND AN EFFORTLESS SOCIAL MEDIA SCHEDULE
AND HERE YOU ARE...AGAIN...LOOKING FOR AN IMAGE THAT ISN'T OF YOUR DOG OR YOUR 5TH CUP OF COFFEE.
YOU TRY TO SET UP A CUTE SHOT OF YOUR WORK-DAY LUNCH (#BOSSLADY) BUT YOUR LEFTOVERS ARE LOOKING, WELL...LIKE LEFTOVERS.
NO CHAMPAGNE AND MACAROONS HERE, JUST ANOTHER CREATIVE TRYING TO TURN HER DREAMS INTO A REALITY...

SARAH FROM GIFT FAIRY, @giftfairyhq
Having been a Shay fan for years now it was a no brainer to subscribe for monthly beautiful images to keep my insta fresh and pleasing. I run 4 Instagram accounts for my photography business and they need a cohesive feel across the board and for each feed. Couldn’t have done this without her.

A Note From Shay
Many of you have been fans and supporters of the SC Stockshop since it was created as a humble little Etsy shop back in Nov of 2013. I never imagined that shop would birth an entire "styled stock photography" industry making it easier than ever for creative businesses to have access to styled imagery to represent their brand.
As we've grown, we've never stopped listening to the needs of you, our client.
Today's small business owner faces an unprecedented high demand for fresh imagery to keep their clients engaged across a variety of social platforms. Your requests for styled imagery that is both high quality and available at a lower price point is what prompted the creation of Social Squares.
It is my sincere hope that Social Squares makes owning a creative business easier for you by becoming your go-to source for fresh images to meet the growing demands of visual marketing in this social media driven age. It's just another way I hope to help you to Do Business Beautifully!
We consider Social Squares to be the "little sister" of the well-loved and widely used SC Stockshop, helping creative brands of all shapes and sizes to Do Business Beautifully.
If you love the styling and image quality of SC Stockshop then you are going to LOVE what we have in store for you with Social Squares!
