• 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!

Cheeeeeeeese! Paxton was cracking me up for this shoot, he said cheese the whole time and did not stop smiling! And he has grown up so much since the last time I saw him. Thanks Derek and Lynn, so great seeing you all. Oh, and kermit too!

Cutest little family ever!!! This sweet little girl wasn’t super sleepy ,but rocked her session along with big brother, Hudson. It feels like yesterday that I photographed Hudson as a newborn, where does the time go? Thank you so much Andrea and Trent for making the trek to the studio! Loved catching up!

Ilaria

There is something so sweet and calming about this family! Ilaria’s outfits were sewn with love by her mama, she even made a cute little shrug to go along with one of the outfits. So so so cute! Thank you Brigid and Anthony for having me capture this precious time!
