• 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!

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!

I am pretty sure I could have photographed this little nugget all morning! She had so many cute faces and wasn’t shy about sharing them. And I had so much fun meeting and chatting with her mom and dad, so much fun and they just happen to live in my neighborhood! Thank you so much Margaret and Blake, it was so much fun!

Love this family!!! And I LOVE their style. And along with awesome style, these kiddos have such fun personalities. They never fail to show me their goofy sides which I love, it always makes for fun photos. Not to mention they are gorgeous. Stephanie and Matt, you should have about 4 more kiddos! Thank you so much for having me capture this adorable time for your family!

This adorable family looks like they are straight out of a magazine. And of course I had the hardest time picking photos due to cuteness overload. Thanks again Gwyn and Tony, always great seeing you guys!!
