I voted to keep them together, just because I like to read both and it's easier for me. That being said... if it is easier for you or makes sense in business terms, I think it would be fine to separate them. I like to read both, so I would probably still visit both regularly.

Hey Lyndsay, I vote to keep them together. I think its easier to keep it interesting and to keep fresh content up that way. I would just use your labels (which you do anyway)to make it easy for clients to find session examples. Plus, they can always look at the website for examples of your work.


I vote to keep them together. I like learning about your personal life and seeing all the additional pictures you share of your family that just aren't available on your business website. I think it's a great way to share who you are with potential clients. :) Other than The Nest, your blog is how I saw your great package deal and knew that I wanted you to be my photographer.


keep it together! Makes me feel better that I have a combo blog, LOL.


I said seperate them, just to help your business with the google ranking. I would most definately check both everyday... Love your stuff.

wow, this is crazy but i was just pondering this same thing and even posted on a message board asking how others handle their blogs. i'm not at the level you are nor have the following you have but am trying to decide whether to merge the biz and personal blogs (they're separate right now) as i'm purely in the beginning stages. i find myself posting more on the biz blog, and my personal photos are ending up on it too. and i've noticed i tend to gravitate towards photog blogs that cater to both audiences. so... for me, i would say keep them together. if you decide to split the two, at least you can strategically place a link to your personal blog on your business blog.

sorry for the rambling. good luck.


I'm looking for a new blog that allows for big pictures. Would you be willing to share who your new service provider is? I'd love to know. Thanks for your time. I love to follow your work.
