During the 4th of July week,  I am going on the road and shooting in New York. I am offering a limited number of 30 minute portrait sessions for you and your children, partner, parents, dog, iguana or anyone else you want photographed. Below are the latest dates, times and locations:

Wednesday, July 3rd,  4pm-7pm: Prospect Park (Brooklyn)

Friday, July 5th, 4pm-7pm:  Prospect Park


To schedule, please send an email to with the date you are interested in and two or three times that work for you. (Sessions are scheduled on the hour and half hour, for example, 5-530pm or 530pm-6pm).

For $225, I will photograph like mad for up to 30 minutes. Within about five business days I will upload the best edited photos (typically 20-30) to an online gallery where you can download the high resolution files for free. If you want to order prints from me, you can, but you don’t have to. The  galleries will stay online for one month. To get an idea of what type of photos you can expect, check out this recent blog post from a day of mini sessions in a Baltimore-area park.

Perhaps you are thinking “But, Dennis, what’s the catch?!  Other photographers are so much more expensive!” The only catch is that your session fee is payable in advance, non-refundable and there is no rescheduling (not even within the same day).  So if something comes up and you can’t make it to your session, or if you get caught in traffic and arrive late,  I am sorry but you lose your session fee. (You can however gift your session time to a friend with enough advanced notice). If the weather is so bad we can’t shoot (e.g. rain), I will refund your fee in full.

To see the latest dates and times or learn about future specials, please check this page for updates, like me on Facebook (see the FB icon at the bottom of any page of my site), or join my email list by clicking here (I send out no more than 12 emails per year, so please don’t hesitate to join).




1. Can I do a family portrait, some professional headshots, and candid photos of my two-year-old all within 30 minutes? 

Good photography does take some time, so I recommend focusing on one or two simple goals. Toddlers can be especially challenging and time-consuming to photograph. If we're just dealing with adults or older children, we can accomplish more.


2. Can I get an hour session?

Please feel free to purchase back to back 30 minute sessions if you need more time or want to get a lot done. 


3. Can you come to my house or other location? 

This promotion is only for set locations, but I'd be happy to work something out with you for an additional travel fee. Please email me at to discuss.  Also, if you have a suggestion for a new location for me, please let me know!


4. How can we pay you? 

I prefer Paypal because it is instant and allows me to immediately lock in your appointment time. Direct your Paypal payments to You can also mail a check, payable to Dennis Drenner, to 3646 Elm Ave, Baltimore, MD 21211, but please be aware that your appointment is not confirmed until your payment is received.


5. We booked a session, now where do we meet you?

I will send out an email a day before our shoot confirming that we are on, describing the exact place where we will meet, and giving you my cell phone number.
