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!

This is one of my beautiful senior spokesmodels Kendra! We had so much fun out in the snow yesterday…
I can’t wait for her full session in the summer. She is graduating in 2014 and will be helping me to book her friends!

I wanted to show some different edits here. I like to play a little with color and lighting. :)

These are some friends of mine… I just love taking pictures of them. They are so fun, stylish, photogenic and loving. The kids did so great! When I was doing a parent pic Ambrielle kept wanting to join. I was cracking up!

SENIOR: Ashleigh

This girl is soooo photogenic. It was so easy to do her shoot. I had the different places in mind that I wanted to go. Her cousin and aunt came along for her session too. Along the way we saw some other family/friends around town that also joined us. :) Honestly that is the exact reason I love living in a small town. Some people probably say the opposite… but I love catching up with people and we are such a little close knit community.

I’m trying to look through all my sessions from the past year I haven’t posted. I have a lot to go.
