How do I create a personal website? Are they typically hand-coded from scratch or do they use some sort of site-building software?

Don’t hire an amateur website designer. Seriously, you’re better off postponing building the site. There’s a long list of reasons why an amateur website designer will give you headaches. I won’t go into the list here, but it’s probably no surprise that designing websites is a very complicated and involved thing. You need someone you can depend on. I used to be a website designer, and the reality is, the field is not like plumbers or electricians where there is a (very general) parity among expertise in the field. A plumber is generally a competent plumber. A web designer is not always a competent web designer. Finding a good web designer is challenging. But I can recommend these guys https://eulerr.com/project/cat/website/

If you have a ton of pictures and videos that you'd like to share with your family, the best way to do this is with a personal website. A personal website is a great tool for people to stay in touch with friends and family because it allows you to share media and information such as birthdays, weddings, parties, and more. The good news is that nowadays you don't need to know HTML; anyone with some spare time and patience can make a great looking website.
1. Decide on a website builder software to use if you don't have any programming experience. If you are proficient in html, you can skip this step.
2. Find a host. The host is the company that will store the files that make up your website. Whether it's free or paid (see Tips), you'll need to set up an account first.
3. Get a domain name (optional). If your host doesn't provide you with a domain or sub-domain name, you'll need to get one. It is easier for people to remember a simple domain name (ie: http://www.wikihowexample.com) than a tediously long URL (ie: http://www.wikihowexample.com/user/creat...rhmpg.html).
4. Decide on the content. You know this is a website for your friends and family, so think about what you will offer them when they visit. Some great ideas are tools like photo galleries, a calendar, a guest-book or forum, an e-mail list, and news on your front-page. Write down your thoughts as you come up with what to include.
5. Create a logo. Even though you may think a personal website doesn't need one, a logo unifies and makes your website more comfortable for your guests. Use a program like Corel Paint Shop Pro to manipulate some text (possibly your name or family name) into an attractive and pleasing design. You could just save yourself the money and look for some open source software, gimp or inkscape should do just fine. They are also free and just as useful as Photoshop and Paint.
6. Create pages. Using HTML or a Web-Publishing tool like Macromedia Dreamweaver, create a "Home" page with an introduction to the website, news, and basic instructions on how to navigate it. Other pages such as a "Biography" page and a "Contact" page may soon follow. Save the pages as .html.
7. Publish. Upload your pages and files to your root folder ("/"). Use an FTP program or your web browser to log in to the server. On your browser's address bar type "ftp://your-domain-name.com" and hit "Go" or the Enter key, then fill out the prompt with your username and password (provided by your host). You can browse your folders as you would on your PC or Mac.
8. Update. Keeping your family and friends up-to-date with news and photos is invaluable to them. Share new stories and jokes with them frequently to keep them coming back.
