"It was SUPER FUN, and he got the kids to smile which is not easy because the youngest was being surly for no reason. He made us laugh, it was a beautiful place, the portraits we’ve seen look great and it was just really fun, and I hate having my picture taken, and so for me to say it was a good time means something."

"Douglas Burns was not only accommodating, he found the location for us. He worked well with my children. He made my wife, and my children look like magical fairy creatures coming out of the woods on a hot, steamy, Houston day. He makes magic where no magic can be found."

"Douglas is a fantastic photographer! He came early to plan the shoot and he made everyone feel great. The pictures were everything that we imagined!"

"What a kind photographer who brought out my best! He gently encouraged me to move this way or that and helped me to be relaxed during the shoot. Thank you for giving your time and expertise to this project."

"I truly enjoyed my photo session with Douglas and the resulting headshot that I just received from him. His attention to detail and every nuance during my photo session with him was outstanding. (He cared more about how I was presented than I did!) Upon viewing some of his other projects, it became apparent, to me, that Douglas Burns is more than a photographer. He is an artist who happens to use a camera instead of a paintbrush. Any individuals or families who are seeking the type of photos that can be used to represent a particular time or era in their lives for generations to come should seek out Douglas."
