“When words become unclear I shall focus with my photographs …” — Ansel Adams
Hello & Welcome! My name is Kelsey and I am the owner of K-Adams Foto, your favorite McHenry County photographer! My business is located in McHenry IL, northwest of Chicago, and I provide my photography services to small business owners and individuals in McHenry County and the surrounding areas.
I received a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Digital Photography from the Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg in 2011. Shortly after I began to hustle and build my brand/name and now today, I am a successful business owner providing my skills to anyone in need of quality photographs. I opened up my own studio in October of 2021 in the heart of Downtown McHenry and I now have the most perfect business partner (AKA my studio dog Jupiter).
There is never a dull moment in my life, and I love staying busy! I currently partner with Visit McHenry County, The McHenry Chamber of Commerce, Black Orchid Boutique and many other amazing businesses and groups in my area. I also provide my skills and volunteer when I can.
The services I specialize in are events, business headshots, product photography, branding / empowerment sessions, maternity, engagement, 1st birthday and family photos. I am very well rounded in my field and can work with you in other areas of photography if needed and if I can’t, have a great network of photographers who I trust and value to suggest you to!
My clients love the connection I provide at our sessions within minutes of meeting, allowing them to feel more comfortable so I can capture the real moments they look for. The business owners I work with enjoy an increase in sales and customer engagement they get from the visuals I provide, giving them a quick return on their investment.
