Make sure you are composing your message in HTML mode.

Copy and paste the pictures from your website into the body of the message.

Not an elegant solution, but Outlook does not give you much in the way of choices here.  Other e-mail clients (even Outlook Express) offer better HTML support.

Another way to handle this is to use 'Stationary' in Outlook.  This allows you to essentially import an HTML file for use as the template for your email message (and you provide the text as normal).  Just remember to use absolute paths for your images, ie. http://www.yourdomain.com/images/thepic.jpg.

For an overview of how to use this method, see www.experts-exchange.com/Q_21033876.html.
