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

Indian River Mini’s

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

I had a fun mini session event with these three families in Indian River this summer. A super nice lady let us use her awesome yard and I was walking around with my mouth dropped open. It was so full of so many cool things I was having a blast.

I know I always say it… but it’s only because it’s TRUE… I love watching babies grow! I have been photographing this little man since he was in his mama’s belly. It’s the third session I have had with his parents and I have to say this one is my fave! We had to fight the wind and he did so great. Today his mom wrote she needs more wall space and it made my day. You probably can tell he loves to fly. :)

Look at this cute pie! She was giving me a run for my money when I was trying to get her to smile… I check my facebook the next day and her mommy said she was just FULL of smiles. Braylan and her would make great friends. haha. He hates the studio. We’ve already decided on a plan for her one year old session. Hadley Grace WILL smile for that one… I love getting to know people through my business. Alicia and Roger drive all the way from Cheboygan to have me take their pictures and I’m so happy they do! I even drove up there last week to take some pictures for the company they work for. It’s so fun to watch people babies grow and to learn about people! I LOVE the little outfit they got off esty! I’m thinking about doing a vendor spotlight on what to wear and where to find stuff…
