    Hi! I just started my very first website and am looking for some feedback.

    Some things to keep in mind:

    I am an amateur!!!
    I've never created a website before in my life.
    The images are low res to help protect myself and the children involved so they aren't as "crisp" as the full versions.
    There might be typo-o's and other little nuances.
    It's not finished.. actually, just started it last night, so its in the VERY early stages.
    Its a free web hosting site, so there are limitations on what I can do.

    The site is having issues uploading pictures to the gallery, so I only have about 10 shots there. But feedback/CC is welcome. I appreciate honesty in a constructive manner :blushing:

    I enjoy how tasteful, clean and simple your website layout is I think it's a good start :)

    Also, I love the picture of the kid on the trike. It cracks me up, and has a cool kind of 'vintage' look to it!

    Well for a beginner and the "newbie" you say you are it looks pretty good to me! Don't be so harsh on yourself, it looks awesome :) I like the layout / colors of your site so far and your pics are great. Keep it up!

    It looks like a pretty decent site. The only thing that I really noticed (that is really detracting and distracting) are the cheesy banner ads. Some of them are really tacky (especially the ones that say "Someone has a crush on you", etc.)

    I know that is a drawback and is unavoidable with the free web services. Which is why I avoid them.

    I think you should just pay for your own domain - they are super cheap. And I think if you are really going for a professional look and trying to sell your work or services, that you would benefit from doing so.

    As for the shots, some of them are really nice - my favorite is the one with the chubby toddler eating the shish kabob with a table full of food.

    Other shots kind of look like snap shots. I would only put my best on a portfolio site if I were you.

    Also, I just noticed that the link in your sig appears to be broken.
