Hello there! My name is Sheleka Laseter, and I am a professional photographer in Birmingham, Alabama. I have been involved in photography for over 8 years, and it is a passion that allows me to really capture the essence of my subjects and create a timeless and notable experience. I was initially inspired to pick up a camera by a close friend, who was also an amazing portrait photographer. His unexpected passing motivated me to pursue photography as a professional career.
Through photography, I have had the opportunity to network with various creatives in the city of Birmingham. To me, creating is how we show the love and appreciation of the gifts that God has blessed us with. Therefore, Miyako Studios LLC is not only an entity that provides quality images, but also a hub where creatives can gather and generate magic. My purpose is to spread love, foster creativity, and inspire individuals to pursue their dreams and aspirations. By serving as the Creative Impact Developer and official photographer for the non-profit organization, The Regenerate Society, Inc., I intend to revive, restore & regenerate the image of the young generation of creatives!
"Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth."
- Bradley Whitford
