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

Oh Gosh… did I ever love this wedding. You will see how in love and caring the both of these two are.

I can’t say enough about this wedding and how great this bride and groom were to work with!

MATERNITY & NEWBORN: Sawyer James

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

These are our friends Dustin, Paige and their little man Sawyer. Poor Paige was on bed rest the end of her pregnancy and had to have Sawyer early… but he is a healthy and happy baby! He was anything but sleepy for his newborn session.

FAMILY: Fruge

I really like to photograph on murky gloomy days… no matter what angle or direction the lighting is great. Courtney had me come to the beach down by their house in Boyne City. Such a nice place! There was even a fish pond they like to take the boys to.

CHILDREN: Beau and Westyn

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

These little country boys are one of my best friends kids! She is expecting another May 2014. :) So excited! I love sharing memories with her and our kids. For the last couple years we do their summer shoot around Beau’s birthday in July on their farm.

FAMILY: Coates

Picking pictures for my blog and seeing the beach I so wish it was still this nice out! I don’t usually do family pictures with all teenage kids but I wish that I did! I think people think when their kids get to teenager age and take pictures of them playing sports, dances and other things they forget to get family pictures done. I highly encourage people to book sessions to capture times like these… I think the Coates Family would agree!

SENIOR: Sawyer

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

This past year I have been very blessed with awesome seniors! This is Sawyer… her, her mom and sister traveled up here to Harbor Springs from downstate to have me shoot her session. I’m sooo glad that she did! We walked around town and the beaches to find so many great spots. We had a weather scare but it ended up staying clear and the lighting was fantastic!

FAMILY: Polleys

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

I’ve been taking pictures of this family for a few years. We had so much fun on a hot summer day at Mt McSauba in Charlevoix. It was the first time I had ever been to this location and went back a couple time after I loved it so much!
