about me

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.

Please find me on facebook, instagrampinterest, and twitter to keep up with my family, my life, my photography.
