• 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!

Baby Theo

We’ve all been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little guy! Meet Theo, our new neighbor! Theo quite possibly has the best baby lips ever to go along with his perfect little face. We are beyond excited to be Theo’s neighbor and watch him grow. Congrats Anna and Kyle and big bro Yogi! Welcome to the hood, Theo:)
