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

still waiting on our little guy

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Oh what better to do when 39 weeks pregnant than to have lots of time to have ideas and no clients to use them on. :) I have never had this much time off… I was still editing the week I brought Braylan home which I’m super happy I won’t have to do. I have a couple late Dec. shoots for clients traveling from afar. So still a while to use these ideas on my own family. Our plan was to have the lil guy a couple weeks early and to be induced but his lungs weren’t ready so we had some time to wait. Now we are almost 40 weeks and I’m getting impatient but reminding myself I’m lucky to carry my kids full term. All I can ask for is for hi to be healthy and to have a safe and natural birth. I hope my next post is of my babies face!

Busy week!

Monday, October 14th, 2013

What a super busy last week of shooting. I am now only editing and designing until my boy gets here. So much to catch up on and get ready! It was a super beautiful week and the colors couldn’t have been better.

Catching Fireflies

I have 2 more catching firefly mini session to still shoot but I have to say… these are so much fun!! I just love how awesome this theme is turning out. Parents are so excited with the sneak peeks so-far and editing is so fun! I can’t wait to to photograph more in the next couple days.

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!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

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. :)

FAMILY: Carissa, Jake, Kale & Ambrielle

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!
