This is Anton and Mimi, they are a very prolific stock image couple. They are very pretty, almost too pretty. Mimi is a little more prolific than Anton, it does spark a bit of jealousy within their relationship, but they get by. It helps that they have a very passionate love life. You can almost feel the PASSION in their images. One of their keywords in fact, is passion.

Let’s take a trip through the life and times of Anton and Mimi…

 

Here Anton is going by the name Maximillian, he’s getting fancy – and he’s mafia! That bad boy. Can you believe it? He’s so pretty, mafia guys aren’t pretty. Mimi is playing the leading lady of Courtney…you don’t get much information about Courtney, just that she sparks the passion in Maximillian the Mafia dude’s heart.

I’m getting a little worried about Anton. He was getting a little deep in the bad boy territory. That might not be good for their relationship. But give them time…

Has enough time passed?

Look! Anton has moved on and he’s now a police officer. His name is Ethan. Sexy name, Anton! He’s got the hots for Paige, played by Mimi and they have a very tumultuous relationship. Mostly because Paige is keeping a lot of secrets. I hope these two can work things out!

I guess Anton and Mimi are working things out by getting a little freaky. They’ve decided to live life in the swinger lane…Anton, going by Bart (I like Anton better) is getting his bestie to join them in the sack to keep the relationship kicking with that passion we spoke of earlier. I don’t know about this – Anton looks a little reticent on this cover…

Mimi has a cool name, it’s Héloïse! Nice, right? And now she’s running around with vampires! Wow. The thing is, though – Anton is the vampire that she’s running around with. His name is Gabriel and he also has a wife that he’s been keeping secret. Mimi and Anton’s relationship is getting very complicated. Can it make it?

As Anton and Mimi’s story comes to a close today, we leave them in a sweet embrace – but falling deep in darkness. The two are still part of the undead vampire realm. Anton is now going by the name Alec (ooh I like that better than Anton) and Mimi is Nora. But, Alec needs to watch out, Nora might be hot for another guy, her nemesis – and there will be no sharing this time. Poor Anton…

It’s hard to find a good stock image – and Anton and Mimi are a great couple in the stock realm. All of these covers are well done (well most) – but it just shows how a stock shot can be overused. Even my own covers have prolific couples. It hurts – like they are cheating on you, but unless you have the big bucks to pay a photographer you are forced to use stock. And even if you buy a custom shot – you buy the shot and not rights to the model, so you’ll see the same model on other covers. Being a cover designer isn’t easy…
