Hello and welcome to CityGirlSearching


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 a delightful one-year-old girl; Everly Rose. I live on the family dairy farm with my Farmboy hubby, and a host of rescue creatures including our adorable rescue pup #ShadowTheJindo, and I’ve been blogging for the last six years.

It has been through blogging that I fell 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."



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 has covered the past 8 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.

This blog has also 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. It’s also been a space for me to share my journey into motherhood for the first (and now second!) time.

If you’re here and wondering whether we would be a good fit in working together, I’d love to share more of my work with you. This way you can get a better idea of my style and the services I offer.
