My Story


“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! K-Adams Foto is the only women owned, community focused photographer in McHenry County who has won Women of Distinction & over 10 photography awards such as Best of the Fox, has photographed many celebrities, such as the Chicago Bulls and has a business partner, my dog Jupiter!

Over the past 13 years, I’ve transformed my hobby into a successful career, currently based in a professional studio located in Downtown McHenry, an hour from downtown Chicago and Milwaukee.

I provide my photography services to small business owners and individuals in McHenry County and the surrounding areas. I also provide my skills and volunteer when I can and love to give back to the community.

The services I specialize in are events, business headshots, branding / empowerment shoots , product photography, as well as food and drink. 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 to you!
