My name is Jana Sobel, and I would like to thank you for visiting my website! I live in Birmingham and am the mother of 2 girls. A few of my favorite things include fitness, real estate, and photography (of course)! I am also addicted to coffee and road trips.
I grew up in Birmingham, AL and attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Did I get my degree in photography? No. The arts? Not even close. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA. I have worked as an engineer at Southern Company and an analyst at Southern Natural Gas. I "retired" from the corporate world in 2016 and now work full-time as a photographer and real estate investor for Barkley Properties.
For me, photography is a way of freezing time and preserving moments that otherwise might become lost or forgotten. I enjoy documenting both everyday life as well as engagements and weddings. In addition to photographing weddings, I have a passion for photographing commercial projects for clients who want to effectively grow their business and thrive in today's market.
