• 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!

Paxton is Two!!

Time is so bizzare, I feel like Paxton has been around for years but he’s only two. And I’m sure to his mama, it feels like he was born yesterday! Regardless, he is such an adorable happy little guy and I love that his BFF Kermit comes to every shoot. Thanks again Lynn, and thank you for dealing with my craziness and letting George join us! I love seeing you guys!!

Liam

Welcome to the world sweet little Liam!! This little guy is so calm and content. He was awake for about half of his shoot and didn’t make a peep. And big bro Charlie was pretty amazing too! Gosh these boys are cute!!! Congrat Molly and Chris, so happy for your family of FOUR! Thanks for having me capture this precious time.
