First 1 second glace: Very nice aesthetics!

Note: My feedback is my personal opinion based on my experience and feelings

  1. The announcement bar at the top seems to go astray. It's quite camouflaged and people can miss it at first glance.
    1. Either change the purple to a lighter, vibrant purple or change the text to white or another design where the bar is more noticable
  2. Blue buttons seems out of place with your colour palette of your site. You have this kind of musky purple and you have this highly saturated blue (close to facebook blue) contesting it.
    1. Play with the colours, if you want to keep the blue or purple, have different shades. For example the announcement bar could be a light purple while the buttons are medium purple.
  3. Navigtion Bar: You don't need a "home" button/link. Most websites and people know the logo is the home button which is does.
    1. If you remove this, you nav bar will look cleaner and less cluttered
  4. Stock photos:
    1. Try get stock photos that are similar to represent your brand. For example your hero images have monotone colours of black, white, browns, oranges... very earthy colours. While your "modern, simple, actionable, accessible" photos are different photostyles and feels. Try match it all up.
    2. For example: "Simple" and "Actionable" have the same feel and look while "accessible"  and "modern" are two different complete styles and feelings.
  5. Footer: Include links in your footer. Example: social media (if you have any), address, phone number, terms and conditions, pricing or anything that you don't want to have on the main top navigation

This site is a 7.1 site and you are making good use of an index page. That is why it says home on the NAV bar. If the home page has a lot of content as yours does, having home on the NAV bar is not a bad thing at all. Your site lends itstelf to quite a bit of scrolling, so I would suggest you make it a bit easier to navigate with the use of a simple "back to top" button. To do that add a code block in your footer set for html and add this code between the <p>s:

<a href="#top" class="t-top"><span class="arrow"></span>Top</a>
  /* Back to Top */  
.t-top {
    font-weight: 500;
    letter-spacing: 2px;
    font-size: 15px;
    text-transform: lowercase;
    text-align: center;
    line-height: 1.6;
    padding-left: 2px;
    padding-top: 4px;
    position: fixed;
    right: 25px;
    bottom: 60px;
    width: 40px;
    height: 40px;
    z-index: 999;
    background-color: transparent;
    color: #000;
  filter: drop-shadow(8px 8px 8px #666666)
.t-top .arrow:before {
      font-family: 'squarespace-ui-font';
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: 300;
    font-size: 20px;
    line-height: 1;
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    content: "\e02d";
    text-align: center;
    display: block;
    vertical-align: middle;
    transform: rotate(-90deg);
    cursor: pointer;
    margin-left: -4px;
  filter: drop-shadow(8px 8px 8px #666666)
.t-top .arrow {display:inline;}

You can see this button in use here on this page: https://christinegregoryphotography.com/kisses

On this site there is a landing page, so home is not on the nav bar. By the way, a home page does not have to be called "home" you can name call it something else if you wish, something more connected to your site's concept.

thanks a lot both for your very valuable feedback! we incorporated your points and made the adjustments. Only, we do not manage to get rid of the "home" index on top (if we want to delete it, it would delete the full page incl the content). 

Thanks again and please let me know in case I could help with anything for your own pages.
