Okay, here`s what I`m seeing with the changes. The hot pink background
is annoying. I think you might want to consider a tiled background, or
even a fairly large grayscale "watermark" sort if background. I don`t
usually consider those, as they`re often background images and make a
page load slowly. But the hot pink is starting to detract from the
The front page done in all italics is also annoying. It`s hard to read.
I particularly admire people whose site extends across a whole screen.
That takes some skill, and works nicely. However, it also creates a
whole lot of screen space, particularly on a 19" LCD panel. As such,
with all italics, fairly small type, and the background, your message
is getting lost.
For example: The "Hello, my name is Maryann...." is 3/4 of the way down
my screen, so it`ll be "below the fold" on an 18" regular monitor or
with a resolution of 1024x768. Addtionally, the "what we will offer you"
shold be in bullets or some sort of point-by-point listing.
In other words, your fundamental business if photos. But on your index
page, all you have is a little 400 pixel window with a revolving slide
show. 90% of the real estate is scattered, inconsistent text. How does
that help sell visual images?
I`d like to see some sort of formal navigation bar. You could set it up
to look sort of like a guest book or wedding invitation---be creative.
The "services" across the middle of the page, horizontally, don`t have
a visual clue that they`re links. They look just like all the other
text. So either a nav bar, or a better way to highlight what you offer.
It`s better than it was, but you might want to consider getting some
advice from a professional graphic-design and layout specialist.
