Hi, I'm Charlene Van Veit, the face behind Van Veit Creative. I started out like many new mom's with a camera in hand wanting to document every minute of my baby's life. But photography quickly grew into a passion of mine. Documenting the daily moments in my own life led me to wanting to be able to share that gift with others.
I especially love lifestyle photography because I get the opportunity to highlight a family's unique connection. Family is an integral part of who I am and I deeply value the time I spend with my husband and my two kids. The connection that we share is intimately and uniquely ours and I love that each family has their own way of thriving together.
I have a background in Early Childhood Education with many wonderful teaching years and experience. This made the transition to family lifestyle photographer feel very natural for me.
When my cameras not in hand I'm most likely holding a cup of coffee, a book, or snuggling my kiddos. Currently working on dedicating daily time to meditation which is a challenge for my overthinking brain!
Creativity definitely fuels my soul so I'm grateful everyday that I get to do what I love.
