I spent a good part of yesterday working on my photography website. I wanted to know if anything stuck out as needing a change. I can't move the "About Me" section ... at least not easily. That's the one thing I wish I had done differently (put it before the Contact section). But other than that, how does this look for a starting point?
I do plan on buying a "real" site down the road. I actually started this one with print prices as a goal (not to list, but to show starting prices) but I realized I can't go there yet. I'm going to continue with the session fee and then have the clients order from mpix. I lost all of the work I did on my prices (collections, a la cart, and digital) last month, and I can't redo it right now. I'm not in a position to fully launch yet, but I'm keeping the higher session fees in order to make it worth my time to some degree. I do want to make this a business, and I hope to get the prices all lined up. I need to file as an LLC, just wasn't ready to pay the fees yet (as my DH isn't fully on board, and I feel like once I pay those fees there's no turning back).
There's a lot on my mind right now ... I want to do this, but I have to focus on my family too and they don't appreciate the time this takes. Meanwhile, I'm slowly moving forward, not rushing into anything, but I really wanted a site to be on the road to being more real. Does that even make sense?
i think your site looks great and I think your about me is before the contact section? maybe you changed it last minute but i think your site looks pretty good
and moving forward slowly is good. take it slow. don't rush. i know i'll be like you in a year or two! it's going to take me awhile.
Your site looks great to me.
I agree with Loida, take your time. I always thought I would never go into business but dh is the one actually encouraging me to give it a try. I told him it was something I would consider when the kids were older and less dependent on me.
Gwen, it looks wonderful! Great choices of background, fonts, and layout. Looks very polished.

I really like it! I like your selection of sample images - there's a good variety there!
My "babies" are Abigail (6/06) and Caleb (1/08 )
I think it looks great! My only qualm, and it's a personal one, is the choice of Investment. I just personally don't like is. I know the reason and I know it's to show that the client is using their money to not just buy a product, but to invest their money in memories/images. But, it's just not my cup of tea
I love the layout and colors. The gallery is nice, because I can move the images at my own pace.
I'm so sorry your DH isn't as supportive as you'd like. That really stinks! I would be completely dejected and saddened if my DH wasn't supportive. I hope he comes around for you.
