Re: It WILL help your reputation...

I agree.

Do some free sessions with really close family (brothers/sisters, cousins etc) with the agreement that they will recommend you on there facebook page or where ever. A friend of mine did this for me. He was just starting his professional business, he agreed to take free pics of my newborn if I posted them on facebook tagging everone as photographed by insert name . And left his contact info in the description for the album. It worked out great. I got free professional pics of my new baby and he got free exposure to all my relatives and friends who were looking at the pictures.
A few of them did book sessions with him after that.
