Hello and welcome to the Abbie Payge Photography blog! I am a lifestyle portrait photographer located in the Madison, Wisconsin area. I love fashion and design, and I truly believe it can make the photograph. You will often find me thumbing through fashion and decor magazines for fun new ideas.

I specialize in children's portraiture and my style has been described as modern, rich, and soulful. My greatest joy is capturing all the unique personalities and making connections with my
                                      subjects. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy my blog and visit often!

{Old Friends} Madison Children's Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of taking photos for an old friend. Laura and I grew up living right next door to each other during our grade school years. We literally spent every waking hour together and even got in a little trouble too. ;) Laura now has three boys and they are the best behaved boys I have ever seen. I really enjoyed spending time with them and seeing each of their distinct personalities. Mr. E is quiet and caring, Mr. C is happy but has a little devilish side and Mr. G is sweet and energetic. Thanks for having me out to your barn yesterday, I had a great time!

Happy 1st. Birthday!

It is hard to believe Miss P and Mr. K are already one year old!!! They are not only mobile but incredibly busy and active; they definitely kept me on my toes. I will make this post short and sweet since I need to get back to editing ;)

Construction site and bribery {Madison Children's Photographer)

I have passed by this construction site with a dumpy camper a million times, I knew I want to do a shoot there and this weekend I had the perfect opportunity! Eastyn is 3.5 and is quite the little poser not to mention bribery is working pretty well these days, it only cost me a pack of stickers for about 45 minutes of photo time. Not bad hugh?

We're Back! {Madison Children's Photographer}

OK we have been back for over a week but it takes a while to get in the swing of things. San Diego was very nice but I must say the weather could have been better, it was mostly in the low to mid 60's and I would have preferred it to be a little warmer maybe high 70's but I guess you can't have everything at least we got to go on vacation which was really nice. Thanks Grandma Betty! Here are a couple of my baby girl, she loves to play in the sand an make mud pies, she also doesn't like wearing wet clothes that is why she is in her little undies in the last photo~she was wading in the water and a wave came up and got her all wet next thing I knew she was stripping down at least I caught her before she got everything off which is usually what she does ;)

Spring Break...{Madison childrens photographer}

I was happy to wake up this morning and see that the couple of inches of snow we received yesterday are now gone! Now I can focus on more important things like… VACATION!!! We are heading out to sunny California tomorrow for spring break. I will return all phone calls and emails when I return on Monday (4-13). A post wouldn’t be any good without a photo and this one reminds me of summer and I think it looks delicious with my new digital papers. Yummy!

Thinking of summer.....

Spring is just around the corner, really?

This morning I woke up and the snow was stuck to the trees and there was a light fog. It was so pretty. It is hard to believe that it had rained all weekend. The snow was almost gone and now this. It was pretty but enough already..I want to see spring! I guess that is what I get for living in Wisconsin.

Madison Bridal Show {Madison commercial photographer}

I had the opportunity to do some head shots for Anui salon for the Madison bridal show, and I had a blast! These women were beautiful, and the updos and make up were perfection. These girls were up for anything, which made it even more fun.
