Friendly Reminder Friday!!!!
Just an FYI.. If you follow a business page, like mine, and see yourself tagged in a post with a sweatshirt, this is SPAM... Id hope most would realize, but in case you do not, its SPAM..
You will see this a lot, from many different accounts, if you haven't already. Sadly, Facebook can't keep out hackers or lame people. lol.
That is all!

Did you know:
Outside of owning K-Adams Foto, I do all of the events and marketing for the McHenry Chamber! Yes, this is why i'm always busy, lol, but I would not have it any other way. Im very involved in the chamber (even before this job) and it's helped my business tremendously! I also work closely with Naturally McHenry County and many other local businesses and organizations because I love this town & county!

It's been awhile since we came on here and said hi! You are looking at the faces of the McHenry Chamber! Each of us play a key role in making our Chamber run! From events, to new members, to billing, Riverwalk Shoppes, support and of course, leading the team, we all have the same vision; providing services and programs to enhance the growth and development of the local business community, as well as to improve the quality of life for those who live and work in the greater McHenry Area.

Did any of you guess?! This girl bought a home today! 🏡 🔑

I thought all week about what to write and that it would be this long post about getting here, the process, and everything in between but im just going to say:
“Remember this when life doesn’t go as planned.”
So many thank yous, hugs, cry’s and laughs are in order with this one, but if I wrote them all out it would be a book. Im blessed for so many amazing people in my life who pushed me to this and the others who, for not good reasons, also pushed me to this! Most of all my sister Angie Imlah of RE/MAX Plaza for being a great real estate agent and really helping me threw the process!! 🤍 Cheers 🍻


Good thing ‘lookin good’ is on them and not me tonight! 🤣 lol. Updated the headshots for our alderman/woman and mayor Wayne Jett. Thanks for thinking of me 🤓 😊


Dropping some HUGE news on Tuesday!! Who’s ready?!?


Grateful that Naturally McHenry County chooses me as they’re small business to help them with all their photography to document why you should work, live, eat and play here in Mchenry!!! 🤍🤍🤍🤍

Happy National Small Business Week! 🎉 We're excited to celebrate the unique and wonderful small businesses that make McHenry County, IL a great place to live and visit. Throughout the week, we'll be featuring some of our favorites, so stay tuned and show some love to these local gems! ❤️

My little tulip in a field of daffodils 💛


Did a little brand/empowerment session yesterday with Rachel! She's worked hard over the last year to loose some weight and build some confidence! This shot gave me so many feelings and I can see in her smile, the pure joy she has for herself, her career, her passion and everything in between!
Looking in the mirror back at herself, reflecting on all she's accomplished! 🥲😍🥳

My Story

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. Also, a few times a year I assist in photography and media for a few Nonprofit Organization’s such as The LAM Foundation and Family Health Partnership Clinic.

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. My work has been accepted and displayed in numerous contests and exhibits, and I have been featured in various publications year after year including: McHenry County Magazines and have been displayed in the McHenry Town Planner On Northern Illinois Calendar, Visit McHenry County INSIDER Guide, and McHenry Community guide.

If you would like to see some more of my work or would like to use me for your next photo or design product, please visit www.kadamsfoto.com!
