• 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!

I miss this little family!! Dean and Melissa used to be our neighbors, lots of great times with these two. After they moved, along came baby Austin, who is super loved, especially by his grandparents! Thanks Dean and Melissa, it was so great seeing you all and so glad your parents were there with us too!

He might be the happiest baby ever. It was pretty cold out, but that didn’t bother Elloit one bit! Thank you Francis and Leslie! It was so great seeing you all!
