“Kelsey has such passion when it comes to photography, her art! When I first met her I knew I was going to work with her. I’m beyond grateful for my photos! She’s dedicated, creative and always makes you laugh.”

“Times these 5 stars by 1000!!! Kelsey is the most wonderful photographer and her attention to detail is amazing. I’ve been at many events where she is the photographer and she recently came to our office to take head shots of our staff. She made everyone feel like a model, and we all love our final photos!”

“I wish they had 1,000 stars! That’s what I would give to K-Adams Foto. I have had the pleasure to attend many events she is covering and, besides being an amazing professional, she is such an enlightened person. She is capable of capturing all the special moments around her and bring life to the room she is in, which makes her work so unique.”

“Have a business? You need Kelsey with K-Adams Foto! We’ve been lucky enough to have some pics taken at events we were at and they were all AWESOME!! Reach out to her today; you won’t regret it!”

“I could not be happier with the results of K-Adams Foto! I had a very specific vibe that I was trying to capture for my business and she nailed it! The photoshoot itself was so much fun and she made me feel so comfortable behind the camera! I would recommend K-Adams Foto for any of your business or personal projects!”

“Kelsey is fantastic to work with! She made me feel very comfortable. Her studio is very warm and welcoming. I am very happy with my head shots! I Highly recommend Kelsey!”
