    Let me give you a little background first. I have been doing photography for roughly 10 years. But started doing photography professionally about a year ago as a second job. I shoot the studio shots in my house. From this last order I received I have enough money to either upgrade to a totally new (and better) website that looks more professional or one strobe w/stand + PLM.

    My current gear....
    Canon 7D
    Canon Rebel XTI
    Canon 24-70L F2.8
    Canon 50mm f1.4
    Alien Bee's ABR800 ring flash with 30 + 56 inch softboxes.

    I only have one strobe and need another one, but I believe buying a new nicer website might get me more business.

    Here is my website. Project Nine Five- powered by SmugMug

    I'd go with the Web site (getting rid of the "SmugMug" labeling and all). But remember that you have to promote the butt off of yourself, the Web site doesn't do all the work no matter how professional it looks. A professional-looking Web site is important, but not as important as promoting yourself 'cause without that, ppl won't know about you or your Web site. Your photos speak the volumes as well as your professionalism both on the Web site and off (phone, in person, e-mails, etc.).
