I am an amateur photographer (although my official employment is with Sears Portrait Studio) and have been thinking about starting my own private photography business just to bring in some extra cash, and because I love it. I recently had a baby at the hospital here in town and when I asked if someone would be coming in to take pictures for me, they stated that they had nobody that does that. I am thinking that if I make myself a portfolio; then I could use this to approach new moms and dad's in the hospital nursery setting and offer my services for in the hospital newborn pictures. I think that this would, if nothing else, get me a little advertising and word of mouth business. I would assume that if I just come in as a visitor and offer my services to the new parents; I will get in troubles with the hospital staff. Does anyone know the best way to approach the hospital about this idea? Can I just come in as a visitor and offer my services?
