• 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!

Oscar, Ellett and Vera

Happy 18 months to little Vera. I just ADORE this family! They all have big personalities and are so much fun to be around. Oscar has been looking so grown up lately, next year he is off to Kindergarten and Ellett won’t be far behind. Childhood goes WAY to fast but this family does an awesome job capturing each stage. They are one of my favorite little families, lots of love between these five and it shows! Thank you again Jason and Alissa, I just love our shoots!!

Dee’s Senior Pictures

I do not do senior pictures, my specialty lies with the littles, but there was no way I was missing out on taking my only niece’s senior pictures. Dee is a soon to be graduate of Perry Meridian High School, where she was so involved it’s hard to keep track of all of her activities and accomplishments. Her main events would be volleyball, theater and choir. She can spike the living daylights out of the volleyball and then turn around and sing the National Anthem like its nobody’s business. She is heading off to Ball State in August and I could not be more proud. She has overcome many obstacles with grace and I have no doubt she will do great things. Congrats on your big year, Dee! Keep working hard for your dreams and you will make it happen, no doubt about it. Love, Aunt Jan

This is the cutest most squishy little guy ever! Oh my goodness, he was perfect, all 10 pounds of him! And every little move or noise he made, his parents just melted with love. They are such an adorable little crew and I’m so glad I got to meet them and capture this precious time! Thank you so much Cate and Kyle!! And happy first Mother’s Day, Cate!
