NaKeitha K is a Photographer and Makeup Artist. She's studied in Broadcasting and Video Production at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and received her MUA certification from the Academy Of Glam in Cooper City, Fl. NaKeitha's love of photography was kick started at an early age. As far back as secondary school she had a passion for capturing memorable moments. It wasn't until after the birth of her son in 2007 did she reevaluate her career choice and go from broadcasting to photography. NaKeitha has never taken a photography class. With so much going on being a young mother she decided to work full time to provide for herself and her child. Yet and still, there was a passion to be pursued and that is exactly what NaKeitha intended to do. Later down the line was when makeup came into play.
NaKeitha references a distinct memory of reading an online post by South Florida photographer Robin V.
"I came across a post on her Instagram and I was fully aware that she was a photographer but in this picture she was doing the model's makeup. I kid you not that very moment I said to myself 'I can do this too!' I can do a client's make up, photography or both. That's when my mindset of multiple streams of income began and I never looked back."
Already having a interest in the beauty industry NaKeitha sought out professional teachings; ultimately coming across the Academy Of Glam. After completing their Power Professional Master MUA Program she took off into the world of makeup artistry.
"While I appreciate the time spent at AOG. I believe my greatest teacher at perfecting my craft was the jobs I booked or the extra practice I put in after AOG was over."
She's worked fashion shows, been featured in numerous magazines and worked on location with celebs such as former NBA player Daniel 'Booby' Gibson. Today she is the owner of NaKeitha K Photography and Makeup Artistry and a makeup inspired t-shirt line called The MUA Collection. Based in sunny South Florida her business focuses on natural light and event photography, makeup for all occasions.
