• 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 Jake

How cute are these kiddos? These little beauties just got a new baby brother and he is pretty perfect! Jake didn’t do too much sleeping, he was too interested in what was going on but managed to get lots of cute one. Thanks again Kelli and Nick, it was so great catching up! Congratulations on becoming a family of FIVE!

Cutest boys ever! These two are so goofy and so much fun to photograph. Both have grown up so much since last time I saw them! Thank you again Meredith and Nick, so fun seeing you all!

Elise and Cora

This might be the sweetest family I have! And I can’t believe how much these two have grown since the last time I saw them. So sad how time flies! Thank you again Jon and Demaris, I always love seeing you all!

JJ and Olivia

These kiddos were jumping up in down in the windows as I was walking up to their house. They were so excited to show off their new rooms and awesome backyard. JJ and Olivia are so fun and goody, I love their spunk! Thank you Emily and John, so great seeing you guys again!
