Made By Isabela Photography




Welcome to Made By Isabela. My name is Isabela Sanchez-Navarro.

Just a little bit about me…

I was born in the beautiful country of Panamá twenty-five years ago, but soon thereafter my family moved to the United States. I have since lived in the lovely state of Alabama—first in my lovely hometown of Fairhope, then to Auburn University for college and now in the great city of Birmingham. I moved here with my boyfriend & best friend, Brandon, and our two cats, Arwyn and Alfie, in 2017. We’ve been absolutely loving living in this awesome city!

Isabela + Photography

I have always been quite the ‘hobby’ kind of person. I enjoying taking on different projects and finding new things to learn. The things I have been most drawn to over the years usually involve either being active or creative, or sometimes both. Although hobbies come and go, some have stuck around. Taking photos has been one of the most loyal of them all. I truly love having a camera in my hand. It has been a source of inspiration, joy, motivation, comfort and happiness for me for a very long time.

Pursuing photography and making the decision to open this business has had many driving forces behind it, but what ultimately pushed me to do it was the realization of two things. (1) Photography (and the creative process in general) brings me loads of joy, and I would really love to spread that joy and creativity to other people. (2) It has been a dream of mine to run my own business, and although I’ve always pictured it happening much later in life, I could also just go for it now. There’s no time like the present.

Thank you so much for visiting (and supporting a dream). I hope you enjoy!
