My name is Roxy and I am here to help creative businesses, just like yours, stand out online with beautiful visuals tailor made for their unique brands.
Whether you’re here looking for stock photography, wondering why visuals matter or just popping in to see what I am all about, welcome!
Here’s a warm hello to say that I am incredibly happy that you are here.
I am a South African wife & mom to an adorable rescue pup and I’ve been blogging for the last six years.
It has been through blogging that I have fallen in love with photography!
"Whether I am photographing people and capturing their natural beauty, working on a styled shoot or creating visual brand images, I am passionate about the power of images to craft a compelling story."
Where it all began
I started my creative journey back in 2010 with a travel blog; Farmboy & Citygirl Hit Asia, to document my life and travels in South Korea.
I quickly grew to love blogging and sharing helpful information with people and so once I got back home to South Africa after a year in Korea I needed a way to continue blogging, but with more of a focus on lifestyle and the pretty things I love.
This is how CityGirlSearching (the CGS to my new brand CGScreative) came to life.
CityGirlSearching covered the past 6 years of my life, from our vintage farm wedding (this CityGirl really did marry a Farmboy), to our second move to South Korea to teach English.
The blog documented our travels all over South East Asia, the rescue of our furbaby (Shadow the Jindo) and more recently, my entrepreneurial journey as I take CityGirlSearching the blog, and turn it into CGScreative the business.
From our time spent traveling in South East Asia, I have seen first hand that not everything in life is as beautiful and happy as it may seems. I believe businesses and brands should give back where they can and so I too want play my part. Since 2012, I’ve identified with a cause I feel passionate about and would like to support.
Whenever you work with me, you’re also helping support people in need and that’s an amazing thing. Because together we can make a difference. This is the essence of Stock With Heart, my stock photography membership library. I'll be sharing more about Stock With Heart and the meaning behind the name when it launches soon.
I want to help you feel empowered and full of courage to share your gifts with the world.
And part of that is giving you the visual imagery to stand out, so that your brand can connect with your audience in a meaningful way.
Together, we will create brand imagery that delights and inspires. Are you ready?
