NayMarie is a published photographer and retoucher, based in New York City, who captures the essence of Black art and Black culture, pulling from her experience in multiple genres of photography and image editing! Her combined love for beauty and her community birthed the publication Taji Mag which embodies the positive Pan-African experience and encourages us to love ourselves as we are, not as the media or anyone else suggests we should be. Her conceptual, fashion, and beauty photography tend to have a dramatic, contrasting tone, while her family, lifestyle, and event photography have a very photojournalistic approach. Either way, she always aims for her images to tell a story and to evoke emotions.

She is most inspired by her clients; their extraordinary personalities and alter egos make her day and she loves working with them to create awesome conceptual and familial identities! Whether a rebel on the outside or a superhero on the inside, Nay captures who her clients truly are. She loves to have fun on her shoots. “We smile, we laugh, we leave as friends if we were not friends already!”

NayMarie is also the founder of the Black Owned Business Collective and co-owner of She is a firm believer in building and sustaining the Black community from within. It is vital we support and patron Black-owned establishments.

Fun Facts: “I love roasted Brussel sprouts, globe grapes, and seaweed snax. I’ve been a lover of the arts from birth. I am most fascinated with Photography (obviously), illustration ( is a must see), animation, and pointillism. I will forever think comics and cartoons are cool. I will only watch tv if the show has something to do with Blackness, art, superheros, syfy, police/fire/med drama, or food. I believe we all need to live life as happy as possible. We could stress about every little negative thing, but why? We are granted a new day every 24 hours to create beautiful stories and I love being there to silently capture them… like a ninja!”
