• 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 Mini Sessions

 

Ah, how on earth is it time to book fall sessions!?  I’ve been spending the last week prepping for my fall, winter and Christmas sessions- its going to be a busy rest of the year!  I have put together a calendar for September through November.  These little sessions book up fast, so don’t wait too long if you have a particular date in mind.  I included locations for these sessions, however they are not set in stone and may change as I scope out new areas.  If I’m a little slow in responding, hang in there, my first job is mama of these three little kiddos and sometimes they make me work overtime:)

Here is a link to my fall calendar.  The best way to contact me is via email: janmchugh@ymail.com, or through the contact tab.

I look forward to seeing all my awesome families this fall!

I have been photographing these two since they were babes and now it seems like they are all grown up! They no longer bring toys to the shoots or practice Tai Chi for me, so sad! But I love the little people they are becoming! Thanks Alyce and LG!

Oscar, Ellett and Vera!

I can never pick my favorites with this crew that I love! We made a last minute switch to the studio due to the weather and their outfits worked perfect. Thanks Jason and Alissa, I love documenting these crazy kids!

These two are Christmas jammie veterans (meaning they did it last year, ha!). I just love everything about these two, the hair, the smiles and especially the goofy personalities! Thanks again Jesse and Joe!
