The examples above have more to do with design. I'd love to have found a site(s) that captured me emotionally but I've yet to run by any.
We don’t want a typical ecommerce home/landing page.
Customer buying experience: we want to connect with them with compelling stories of other pets, photos, experiences and other people and drive them into the gallery portion of the site so they can be inspired to hire us to uniquely make a custom urn.
That said, keep in mind that we have left a couple of ecommerce elements referencing the dog and cat urn collection b/c we don’t want to get so far away from ecommerce.
2 types of customers - those grieving looking for closure and those already beyond that part and are looking for the right piece to purchase.
Feel free to add or switch out images of people/pets except the last photo of the little girl and dog.
The stories on the attachment are real and shouldn't be altered.
The sequence should not change on the home page.
The “let’s connect” box is competing with the other elements on the site. Look forward to seeing a different design of this section.
Lastly, we do a fair amount of graphic design work year round, if deciding you want to participate - you may get a fair amount of work from us, year round, from our various companies.

I've attached a few other urns.
