I would like to have a website for my buissness but I am not super tech savvy. I just want something all inclusive, that will let me show pictures. I don't need people to be able to pay online, I just want to advertise my service and show off some of my work. Any advice?

You can have a website with wordpress with your own URL. A wonderful MDC mama- Websavvymama set mine up for me. It cost a lot less than other options I was looking at and it's very easy to manage.

I used squarespace.com for mine and pay $12 a month for hosting. Once I watched the tutorials it was really simple to customize. It is really simple to manage and update.

I'd second the wordpress suggestion. If you get simple basic hosting and load wordpress its really cheap and there are a lot of free template options for it as well. It makes managing your site easier too. Wordpress offers free sites that they host as well that you can direct a domain to.
