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

Gender reveal!!

Monday, May 5th, 2014

So I want start off by saying… I love I get to be on my clients/friends first to know list. Upon knowing they were expecting I threw this idea around with Alyssa and she loved it! She put it all together and I came for a quick shoot. They were all ready in the white shirts, both colors (in case it was a boy or girl,) and handed me the envelope. In that moment when the took off their blind folds… it was so exciting for me to witness. They were cheering and all 3 said they just knew it. They told me before they thought it was a girl. I can’t wait for the next gender reveal!

ENGAGEMENT: Toree and Ryan

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

I’m so happy this awesome couple booked me for their engagement and wedding photos! From the second we started shooting their session I already knew we were such a great fit. They are getting married next June at Castle Farms and my mind is already going crazy with ideas for them. I can’t wait!

Elleana: Snow White Themed Shoot

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

As a little girl I wanted to be a Disney princess and my niece Elleana is no different. I had a last minute idea when my mom showed me a dress she got for her. Just out in my sisters yard we did a quick 20 minute shoot and it’s my favorite to date! She loved playing Snow White… I can’t believe she is 4 years old. My son Braylan followed her around and told her he was taking her pictures and to say cheese. Thank goodness she didn’t… oh the word cheese it makes me cringe. His toy camera taught him that! Darn thing. I have a theme just for Braylan coming soon and I can’t wait!

Castle Farms Wedding: Brandi and Tim

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

From the moment I met them at their engagement session I knew that we were a great fit! I can’t tell you how much I smiled while shooting their big day. From the details, the moments of love, the speeches, funny guests and just the happiness these two share just made the best time! I also entered a contest Castle Farms was hosting for their vendors to win a cover spot on the bridal magazine they give to booking couples with Brandi and Tim’s photo… and thanks to my facebook fans, friends family and all of Brandi and Tim’s peeps I won! I am so very grateful for all the support!
