• 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!

Brooke 18 Months

Happy 18 months to this little peanut! I loved hanging out with this family. Brooke is such a sweet little thing. She started off a little shy but we managed to get her smiles out between bites of goldfish! Too cute and I love her little red dress. Thanks for coming out Holly and Dan, it was great seeing all of you!

Welcome to the world baby Austin!! He has been long awaited and he is finally here. And oh so perfect. Dean and Melissa were our old neighbors so we have known them for about 10 years and we miss seeing them. Espcially now since they have sweet Austin. Congrats you two, we are so excited for your family! Ruth can’t wait to squeeze Austin!
