“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.
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 with many groups, such as the United Way of McHenry County.
You can find me out and about shooting all of our local events, attending mixers, business groups and networking events as well as capturing life’s most precious moments. 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.
The services I specialize in are events, business headshots, product photography, 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.
