My Story


“When words become unclear I shall focus with my photographs …” — Ansel Adams

Hi, my name is Kelsey Adams. I am a digital photographer/graphic artist located in McHenry, IL, northwest of Chicago. My passion for photography began at a young age. Eventually, I realized I could make it a career, so I started studying photography in 2009. Shortly after, I received a Bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Digital Photography from the Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg in 2011.

There is never a dull moment in my life and I love staying busy! I currently work as a full-time product photographer and graphic designer in McHenry County. I also provide my services to local businesses and clients shooting events, product and portrait photography as well as some graphic design.

As a hobby, I love to restore old windows, frames and household items and display my nature photography in art exhibits Craft Fairs in Illinois.
