...very personable, made me feel comfortable, and helped with direction...

Miss Jessica

I loved my shoot with SteamFox! James is an incredible photographer and we had a fun time collaborating when he was in the Sacramento area. He was very personable, made me feel comfortable, and helped with direction, which made the shoot more enjoyable. This was my first shoot in years and it felt like I never stopped! The photos turned out amazing and couldn’t have been happier with the finished product! I would highly recommend SteamFox Photography and would love shoot again in the future

...the photos surpassed my expectations...

Heather Monique

I had a blast collaborating with Steam Fox Photography. I learned so many new things and explored new places. Not only was the shoot enjoyable but the photos surpassed my expectations on so many levels. I was given numerous edits, more than I can count. They were all professionally edited and the access to the albums were very easily accessible. I highly recommend Steam Fox Photography and I will definitely work with them in the future!

...I highly recommend a photoshoot with James!...

Miss Melanie

James contacted me on Instagram to go on a shoot of my choice: fashion, fitness, boudoir. We chose an outdoor ‘fashion’ shoot in seaport, Boston. First off, his camera quality is amazing - but his experience and skill is what truly made all of the shots come out so nicely. He listened to my opinions while also recommending shots that he thought would suit me best. I highly recommend a photoshoot with James!

...my favorite things to do to celebrate my body and confidence...

Miss Amy

This was my third time shooting with SteamFox and we had an awesome shoot! We went to Denver photo collective, which was the cutest studio to shoot at! They had made a post on Instagram of a prior shoot they had done there and I LOVED the photos. We went during the afternoon and the photos had awesome lighting. It’s awesome to me that they are down to shoot wherever, and are so adaptable to whatever setting you choose. For each shoot I’ve done, we’ve done it at different locations and different times of day and my photos have all turned out amazing! I always feel so comfortable shooting with them and they are open to whatever you want to try but also give great direction and help you get into cute poses that turn into amazing photos. Doing boudoir has become one of my favorite things to do to celebrate my body and confidence. I LOVE getting my photos back and am constantly thumbing through them. I will definitely do some more shoots in the future.

...this duo make it extremely easy and comfortable...

Miss Tay

My shoot with SteamFox Photography was nothing short of incredible. To be honest at first I didn’t know how I was going to look with minimal clothes on, but holy cow does this duo make it extremely easy and comfortable the entire time. Looking at the photographs now I am so happy that I decided to work with them and hope that other women feel empowered to do so as well! I promise you that you won’t regret it. From planning a day to the execution of the actual shoot it was beyond flawless. I hope to do it again sometime when they come back to the East Coast!

Such an awesome duo...

Miss Hollis

Such an awesome duo, very professional and easy to collaborate with. Amazing work- can’t wait to shoot again soon!

Very professional and fun to work with!

Mrs. Theresa

I had a great experience shooting with SteamFox! Very professional and fun to work with! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great experience too.

...made me see myself in a different way...

Mrs. Brittany

This is an experience I will never forget. I'm really glad I convinced myself to do this! These two photographers are some of the most down to earth people I've ever met. My car broke down before the shoot and they came to my rescue! We got comfortable with each other super fast because of that experience. Their skills and advice made me feel So comfortable and confident, they made me feel beautiful. I don't have the perfect body but the pictures I got back made me see myself in a different way. I'm so grateful for them and all their hard work! They are super accommodating, kind and very skilled. Highly recommend, especially if it's your first time doing something a little scary like boudoir photos.

...very professional and has an amazing creative eye...

Miss. Jen

Loved that I had the opportunity to shoot with SteamFox. James is very professional and has an amazing creative eye while taking photos! Had an absolute blast during my shoot!

The quality of the photos is amazing!

Miss Autumn

I really enjoyed working with SteamFox Photography! They are both really sweet people and made me feel comfortable. The quality of the photos is amazing! I really loved how I got to see previews before the photos were sent to me because most photographers that I know would never do that!

...I definitely would book a shoot again!

Miss Riley

SteamFox Photography is very professional. James was a great photographer and made it super comfortable to shoot. The pictures are gorgeous, I definitely would book a shoot again!

...comfortable especially when I was nervous...

Tamika Caldwell-Wade

I had the pleasure of working with SteamFox Photography for a fitness shoot and fashion shoot. They were extremely pleasant! They made me feel comfortable especially when I was nervous. They were very positive and encouraging. James is a fanatic photographer and easily captures raw beauty. I enjoyed working with them and hope I have the chance to work with them again in the future!

...sales have increased due to this shoot...

Dani Tado

I cannot send enough praises to James Carton/Steam Fox Photography. James shot my online catalog with 9 models. When I received my images back my mouth dropped. They were beautiful, clean and professional. He has an affinity for detail and did exactly what I needed. He captured all of the details in my clothing perfectly. My sales have even increased due to this shoot. He is professional, efficient and a joy to work with. We had a great time on set and he even got my edits back quickly. HUGE FAN! I will definitely continue to use Steam Fox Photography!

...at ease from the get go...

Aly Issabelle

It was great working with James and Rachel. They're very kind and lovely individuals who made me feel comfortable and at ease from the get go. It was also great to talk shop with them, being a photographer myself. Despite the rainy weather, they were both good sports and I can't wait to shoot with them again when they make their way back to Ohio!

...made me feel so much better about myself...

Miss Abbegail

I normally would've never thought to do pictures like this because I'm so uncomfortable with my body after having 2 babies, but after reading all of the reviews I decided to go ahead and do it. I'm glad I did because it made me feel so much better about myself. James made sure I was comfortable with whatever pose he suggested or place in the house we went. He also made it fun and not awkward at all!

...Definitely my favorite photos & favorite photographer...

Imee (Model) From Cincinnati | Heyman Talent Agency

James is an absolute rock star! I had found him by chance via random click because I noticed an amazing photo. Within minutes of looking at his website I knew my search was over. I had to have James as my photographer. I booked him for my fashion portfolio. Another awesome thing is that he gives you all the digital images... this sealed the deal as I could print whichever ones I wanted. I couldn’t have had a better photographer. You are the best James - thank you so much. Definitely my favorite photos & favorite photographer so far. I’m so excited for the two more photoshoots I subsequently booked with him.

...found a whole new level of confidence...

Mrs. Casey

I had thought about having boudoir photos taken for quite some time, but kept putting it off. After having 2 babies, I just wasn’t feeling confident in my skin anymore. The day of my shoot I was excited, but also nervous. Not only was this my first time doing a shoot like this, but I had chosen to do it outside. James and Rachel were great to work with and made me feel so comfortable. James gave me clear direction on what he was looking for with poses and showed me some shots along the way. Seeing some of the photos during my shoot helped my confidence and made me feel beautiful and sexy! James had the edited photos to me very quickly and I couldn’t be happier with them and my husband loved them too. Through doing this shoot, I have found a whole new level of confidence in my body and quite possibly a love for boudoir!

...I was able to just have fun...

Miss Amy

I had an awesome time doing my shoot and the pictures came out so good. I felt a little bit nervous as I had never done a photo shoot before, let alone a boudoir shoot. James made me feel super at ease, he introduced himself and how his company got it's start before we even started shooting, which eased my nerves a lot. I was also able to bring my sister along with me which was super fun and made it more comfortable. Which let's you get the best shots! James helped with outfit choices and different pose ideas which took the pressure off me and I was able to just have fun! We also jammed out to some music while shooting which made it easier and less awkward to pose.

...I was comfortable the whole shoot...

Miss Lizzy

It was a pleasure to shoot with SteamFox photography. There were multiple set ups within house where we shot which is usually not the case for indoor shoots. I was allowed to set the pace so I was comfortable the whole shoot. By doing that it made it that much easier to feel at ease. He got some amazing angles and took beautiful pictures that I used in my portfolio. Highly recommend if you want beautiful boudoir photos that you feel comfortable taking.

I can't wait to do another one!

Miss Heidi

I had always been curious about doing a boudoir shoot. When I finally did it, I fell in love with everything about it! It brought a whole new level of confidence and feeling of sexy to my life! I had the best time doing my shoot with Rachel. She made the experience fun and extremely comfortable. The photos came out way better than I could have ever imagined. I can't wait to do another one!

...super fun and liberating...

Miss Caroline

As someone who is generally uncomfortable in front of the camera, never mind being in various stages of undress, I was nervous about my photoshoot to say the least. However, James made me feel ease right away. Our easy chit-chat throughout the shoot, combined with his clear direction made the whole experience super fun and liberating. I’m so glad I did it and have such beautiful photos as a keepsake!

...photos came out gorgeous...

Mrs. Sara

I had an absolute blast during my shoot. I felt very comfortable and clicked instantly with my photographer (James). What made my experience even better was that I could bring two of my best friends with me to make me laugh and feel amazing. Not to mention the photos came out gorgeous and every smile and moment captured was genuinely me. My husband LOVED the final product and it was the perfect surprise for him.

...I will treasure these photos forever...

Mrs. Erin

I had an interest in taking boudoir shots for my husband but it was something I never thought I would actually do. A friend told me of her great experience with Steamfox, so I decided to reach out! James answered all of my crazy questions so we set a date to shoot at Fox Run Park. I was so nervous at first but James made me feel comfortable and confident. We got some amazing photos during my session-I have so many favorites!! My husband and I will treasure these photos forever!

...very professional and fun...

Miss Madysen

Shooting with James was very professional and fun! He was organized, on time, and had very good ideas of what he wanted. We hiked up a snowy cold mountain, and made stops along the way to get some beautiful shots. James made me feel comfortable, and was very respectful while I did some wardrobe changes. He made sure I was okay with some of his ideas, and wasn't pushy if I didn't want to do any of them. Although I froze my butt off, and lost a shoe, I would most definitely do another shoot with SteamFox Photography! A big thanks to James for capturing great photos of me!

...very professional and easy to work with...

Miss Tori

Currently, I’m a model for NXT Denver and have been in the industry for five years. I had a great experience with Steamfox photography. He was very professional and easy to work with. I got the images back in a timely manner and loved the editing. Would recommend to anyone looking to do a fashion or boudoir shoot.

...I had a very fun time shooting...

Miss MiKayla

Working with James, was a very pleasant experience. This was my first time shooting pictures of this "genre" and I was very nervous. He let me do whatever I was comfortable with and gave me some tips and recommendations that I was given the option to go along with or not. I had a very fun time shooting even though it was a very, very cold day! I would highly recommend his services. The quick and speedy replies and the flexibility he offers makes the process all the better!
