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. coaphoto.com 231.549.2038

Castle Farms Wedding Show 2013

Monday, October 28th, 2013

I met so many awesome bride, grooms, bridesmaids and some parents this past Sunday at the Castle Farms Annual Wedding Show. This year my mom helped me a super ton… she usually helps me a lot but she really took over since I’m pretty limited to what I can do. I’m sooo thankful! I think my booth this year was my favorite of all wedding shows I have ever attended. Also I completely do not know how I forgot but I am going to blame it on baby brain… I did not add my website, phone number OR email to my brochures. Grrrr.

I don’t have many dates left for 2014 but I chatted with a lot of 2015 brides too so I’m excited about the next couple years of business!

HELLO!

Here’s a little taste of what I’ve been up to… I have lots more to share soon!

Brittany+Eric

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

This is one of my best friend’s Britt and her husband Eric. On August 24th I stood up as a bridesmaid and partially photographed their wedding. I had a lot of help from my sister and a few others who attended the wedding (friends) that also grabbed a camera for some candids. I will do a full blog post on all the 2012 and 2013 weddings I photographed but I really wanted to share this one right now. I have 7 weeks until our new little guy is here and as always I play catch up. Super happy with how busy I have been over the last couple years and it will be nice if I can get to a point in my business to take a real break from work to spend time with my family.

You will notice the collage at the end if from their first look. I have to say it couldn’t have gone better and if you are thinking about doing first look also… I say DO IT! It saves time after the ceremony, relaxes nerves and is just simply fun. If you visit Castle Farms blog you will see a post I just was a part of about first looks.
