About The Photographer

Hi! My name is Erika Blackwell and I am the photographer of Center of Attention Photography. My business is located in Northern Michigan. My blog is a way for everyone to view some of my favorite images from recent sessions and get to know me! I am the VERY proud mommy to Braylan and Grayson. I LOVE what I do and I hope you can tell! These are not JUST pictures I take. I create memories... My heart and soul go into my work. I care about my clients and get to know them and learn what they like and dislike. I am a mommy & artist. I care about the ones I love like crazy, I love to have fun. I make crazy sounds to get those smiles. I dream big. I have tons of ideas. I cry during touching ceremonies and awesome reception speeches. I can usually be found smiling. I get inspired very easily. 231.549.2038

Engagement: Paige and Dustin

As I said below I am going in a super random order to post these blogs. I work off 3 computers and have started to delete my early work that has already been backed up before I had the chance to blog so there will be lots more to post from my other computer.

Ok… meet Paige and Dustin! These are our good friends. This past Sept. we were both in their wedding at Castle Farms. I didn’t photograph it because it would have been so hard standing up in the wedding party and shooting. I have to say it was super odd to just not have to do anything photo-wise at a wedding. It’s my second nature so I was a bit uncomfortable to be honost! I did get my camera out at the reception after the photographer left (didn’t want to step on toes during major parts.) I haven’t even had a chance to look through them… I’m waiting until my client weddings are done. :) Business first! Anyways a little bit more about Dustin and Paige. My husband and Dus has worked together at the East Jordan Iron Works for the past 6 (I think-ish) years. Paige and him got together around the same time we bought our new house (Fall ’08) and I remember him bringing her here to see it for the first time. How time flies! These two were a HUGE help almost one year ago when I was in labor with my son. They were our first friends at the hospital and Paige (along with a few family members) was there until the end. And again…. HUGE POST!
