I understand that as a woman business owner time is limited. You want easy, quick choices. And yet you want just the right photos, because as women we're visual. Our ideal clients are visual...
In our digital world, you know that impressions matter. But you’re a wellness expert — not a professional photographer — and the time and effort it takes to create or curate beautiful images for your online spaces that reflect your business and values is taking time away from your soul’s mission. (Which is not browsing stock photo sites, I’m betting!)
Traditional stock photography is expensive, cold, and impersonal with usage terms that are difficult to understand. And who has time to browse thousands and thousands of photos looking for the perfect one?
Hiring a photographer to shoot custom photos would be amazing, but the price-per-image is high, and you’re often left with a very limited selection (even if the images are perfect). That’s no good for your fast-moving Instagram and Facebook feeds.
And, of course, you could try to take some photos yourself, but it takes years to master that soothing, soulful, fresh look you’re going for.
Hi, I'm Briena ... And I think it's time we join forces to change the world together.
As a believer in natural, sustainable living (with an obsession for essential oils), I noticed a need that I've become passionate about filling ...
As I was just about ready to click the enroll button for nutrition school, I realized that my mission to promote natural living to the world could be so much more powerful if I put my talents as an award-winning professional photographer to work supporting wellness entrepreneurs just like you.
As a result of that epiphany, I've created an extensive stock photo library filled with beautiful, soulful wellness photos to help you achieve the clean, professional look you want for your brand and reach more of your dream clients. I'm always expanding the library by adding new photos, and am always open to photo suggestions!
To learn more about me and what drove me to follow my heart and carve out a new niche to create Wellness Stock Shop, read my featured interview with Veggies and Me!
I believe everyone should contribute to the world around us, for the betterment of our communities and with a deep respect for humanity and nature. And Wellness Stock Shop was born out of my dream to pursue a more meaningful and heart-driven career as an entrepreneur combined with my passion for wellness and natural living.
That passion and vision is what drove me to leave a successful career as an award-winning portrait photographer to create Wellness Stock Shop and support other entrepreneurs with a passion for living in natural balance with our bodies, within nature, and within our communities.
It is my deepest hope that my work uplifts you and supports you on your journey because I believe in YOU and the beautiful, powerful work you do in the world.
LOVE, BRIENA XO
Just A Few Things That Make Wellness Stock Shop So Unique
Lovingly Hand-Crafted + Styled Imagery
I personally style and photograph every single image you find inside the photo library. There's an art to polishing photos in order to reflect a professional edge while still maintaining their naturally beautiful qualities. I pour hours into perfecting the photos to be sure they're professional without being over-edited and losing their relatable appeal.

Real + Accurate Imagery That reflects the authenticity of your brand + what you do
I collaborate with real professionals in the industry to create authentic imagery. This means you won't just find perfectly primped models in fancy, but inaccurate poses. I use real life professionals and celebrate diversity in age, size and ethnicity to breathe life into every photo.
Not just photos - storytelling imagery
By now you might have a feel for why Wellness Stock Shop photos have been labeled as "storytelling imagery".
As an award-winning artist, my imagery goes beyond the technicalities of "good light and composition" - I pour my heart into carefully hand crafting imagery that evokes emotion and tells the story of your business, your mission and your purpose.
The right photo is worth a thousand words.
What do the photos you're currently using on your website, social media and marketing platforms say about your business?
Why You Need To Use The Right Kind Of Photos
"If people like you
they will listen to you,
but if they trust you,
they'll do business with you."
- Zig Ziglar
The imagery you use to represent your business will influence how your prospects perceive the quality and value of your products and services. And the newer your business, the more vital it is for you to stand out and convince your ideal audience that you’re the best choice for them.
So go check out your website, your social media pages... look at them with the perspective of a new visitor. What will they think and feel when they first visit your site?
Will they think - This person is a professional? This person offers quality work? This is the type of person + business I want to work with? I'd definitely be willing to invest in this service?

"When I first saw the work of Briena Sash of Wellness Stock Shop, I was blown away. She is a health coach's dream. The photography is heart felt, caring and tells a story, which every coach needs when it comes to the images on your website, social media or sales pages. Briena has created an opportunity for coaches to have beautiful stock photos at an affordable price. Not only does Briena shoot amazing photographs but she sees through the eyes of a wellness advocate as well and humanizes her work. I am blessed to have met Briena and to have been introduced to her work. I would not go anywhere else for my pictures and you shouldn’t either. Your business will thrive with beautiful imagery. Thank you Briena for all your hard work and commitment."
