Hey, I just finished my new site, using iWeb on my mac, it was very easy and i love the results.

I was wanting a very simple site, very clean.

Love to hear what you guys think of it !

You're right, it's simple. I like it. The only real critiques I have are...
1. The constant reflections are a bit distracting after a while
2. The picture of the little boy w/ blue eyes and "chocolate" on his face on the "Galleries" page needs changed. It's very pixelated.
3. If I were a client, looking at the small size of the "Client Shoots" photos would be hard. They need to be larger. I don't mean 1024, but bigger than they are now.

You have some nice composites, btw.

I like the site itself, but you have no html text at all. It's all graphics. If I were you, I'd at least want to try to pick up "some" SEO traffic, and to better accomplish that you'll want text. I'd re-do your price list and about me section as html text (and also your contacts section).

do away with the 1st page where you have to click to enter. it doesn't make any sense for an extra click

you have 2 menus, a vertical and horizontals, their font's should be the same.

while your logo in the 1st page looks good, using the same font as a navigation menu is makes the menu kinda hard to read and follow.

redo your pricing page, if you want to put an image, rather hotlink it as a pdf file. the image on your pricing page looks compressed.

i think you are giving out way too much info in your contact me page.

ditto about the reflections, also, you might want to start the reflection just a tad further away and lower the starting opacity. the reflection should be there but not there at the same time.

all IMHO

It's clean, but there's too much wasted space. I would say most people have their monitor to 1024 x768. By wasted space I mean I have to scroll down just a bit to see the rest of the page. Your headers are too big. Make them smaller and you should be fine. Also, ditch the splash page...it's a useless click.

Good luck!
