I've been given a great opportunity by a sonographer who works with a Dr. out of Harris Southwest Hospital. After my Jan. birth photography client showed her some of my pictures she suggested that I bring a basket full of my newborn & birth pictures, sample birth announcements, business cards, etc up to keep in either the Dr.s reception area or the sonogram room. I haven't done many announcements yet, but I started working on them last night and this is what I have come up with so far...
I am going to design as many as I can until "G" gives birth and I complete her birth and newborn sessions, then have them all printed and put in a nice little album to put in the basket. I really need to attend more hospital births to have enough of a variety to fill it up, I am sure they wouldn't appreciate seeing images of the home waterbirths I have photographed and will photograph in the upcoming months. I did recieve an email last night from a woman who is planning a scheduled cesarean in May, so I REALLY hope that works out, but it is probably too far off to wait to send my info up to the sonographers.
Does anyone have any ideas on other items I should put in this little basket or ways to make it scream "HIRE ME!"? I want it to look very nice and eye-catching. Something that will make people realize that birth photography is a good idea!
