As a professional photographer I use Smugmug not just for my professional shots, but also for family shots. The website is beautifully crafted and is a great way to showcase you work to any prospective clients, as well as share happy-snaps with friends and family alike.
You can set permissions and passwords on different folder to keep family and work albums seperate, and pictures can be viewed (and sold or downloaded if you allow) in a number of different resolutions, which is great as you can set it to view the medium-res shots and sell the hi-res shots to your customers. You can create albums within albums too, so that you can create a hierarchy of photographs to mirror how you store them on your hard drive.
Also, being able to store an unlimited number of full hi-res images online is a great comfort, as it means I won't lose all my photographs should my hard drive break or should my house burn down!
In summary, I would recommend SmugMug to a friend.
