• Welcome to my blog!

    Welcome to my blogsite! My name is Jan Van Velse and I am a formally trained photographer. I studied fine art and photography for 4 years at Purdue University and graduated in 2002 with a BA in photography, and minors in communications, advertising and philosophy. After college I was mainly a wedding photographer but these days I stick to newborns and little ones, which is my true calling!

    I love being a photographer. I have to be a photographer. I could not imagine being anything else in life.

    Enjoy!

Fall and Winter Minis

It’s that time! The season that every photographer has to mentally prepare for- Fall!  I have about 6 spots left for October. Which will be reserved for past clients. New clients, I’d love to see you in November! Weekend morning slots fill up fast, weekday evenings will be open until November 6, thank you day light savings, sigh. I look forward to working with all my awesome families and meeting some new ones this season!

Brooklyn

How beautiful is this baby!!? Perfect blue eyes and I love her pouty lips, such a girl thing! Brooklyn especially loves being on mama’s lap- that is always when we get the best smiles! Thanks so much Aime for coming out to the studio, it was so fun meeting you two!

Morgan, Sidney, Jake and Baby on the Way!

So happy to call this cute little family a part of our own family. Jessica is my husband’s first cousin and I just love her little crew. Michael and Jessica will be welcoming a baby girl in October and we all cannot wait to meet her! This will be a busy house for sure! Thanks Jessica and Michael for bringing the family out and thanks for dealing with a last minute location change! Can’t wait to see you again in October!

Mitch, Roy and Katie

I have known this cute family since our oldest boys met in preschool, and now they are big time second graders. This session just made me laugh, Monica and CJ just go with the flow straight through the chaos. Props included a snail, a stick and a blankie. Love it all! Thanks for bringing the kiddos out on such short notice, always fun seeing you guys!
