    I think really it could go either way for you.  What about a “site” within a site?  My photog for my wedding has a wedding/engagement/portrait website, and has a link to both his and his partners “blogs” which post a mix of both portraits as well as artsy “side projects.” I follow them both on Google Reader and even though he’s just my wedding photog, I like seeing the other projects he’s working on or random pictures he’s taken.

    Essentially, how about having a professional website for your business, with a blog related to just posting your artsy shots as well as professional ones?  If you want an example PM me and I’ll send you the link to my photog.

    Hope this helps some!

    Brittany was one of the photographers I interviewed for our wedding- I like how she separated the “sides” of her business- “Little Dunks” for the baby pics:

    Her home page is clean, and if you want littledunks, you have a quick link to it.

    Forgot to add- when I was interviewing photographers, I liked to see the range of their work- one wedding photographer also did travel & tabletop- I prefer working with people who have wide portfolio.

    I would not have different sites. You can have tabs under gallery, that is what most do. Yo should already have separate ones for Babies, Couples, Families, Weddings etc. so to me it would make the most sense to then add upon that.

    Mine is sperate, but at the same “landing page”. So when a client goes to my website, they have the option to enter the portrait side or the wedding side. It really depends on what you plan to shoot. For a while I had a landscape/travel gallery and ultimately took it down. Honestly, portraits/weddings are a whole different ballgame and landscape work doesn’t represent someone’s skill level as a wedding photographer. Save that stuff for personal posts on your blog, and keep the website about your business.

    I think you should keep them together.  You should show off your versatility!  Best of luck to you!
