• Welcome to Long Island's leading women's portrait photography studio. Established in 2007, Susan Eckert was the first female only Long Island boudoir photography studio. But new things are about to happen! Along with a new space, Susan will be launching an exciting new line of women's portraiture. Stay tuned!

I’m in LOVE with Blush!

And I don’t mean the makeup kind. You’d think, given that I spend most of my time shooting beauty, boudoir and glamour, that I would be referring to all the varied hues that highlight a woman’s cheekbones and make her beauty shine.


“Wouldn’t blush be a perfect theme for a boudoir shoot?” ponders Long Island female boudoir photographer Susan Eckert

But no. I simply am referring to the color. I’ll admit, I’ve never fallen in love with a color before. (Well, maybe I did in my anxiety-ridden adolescent years when absolutely EVERYTHING had to be purple.) But as an adult, no, I’ve never been so fixated on a single color.

Maybe it’s winter blues and blahs. But whenever I get oh so sick of the cold, dreary days here on Long Island, I turn to Pinterest and run a search on what’s peach, pink and BLUSH!


There’s just something about blush. It’s all things most woman aspire to be — soft, feminine, pretty, sophisticated, understated, elegant, mysterious, inviting, sensual and yes, sexy. Whether it’s a pair of blush shoes with an organza rose perfectly perched on the toes, or delicate blush lingerie, or a flowy sheer blush skirt, I sigh and think of all the possibilities. All the stories these individual parts could tell.


And so, I decided to put together a Pinterest board that tells a whole story about a blushing bride to be anxiously awaiting her big day.



It even incorporates the elements she plans to incorporate into her pre-wedding day boudoir session! : )


I can even see the versatility in the shoot – The good girl wearing blush/The bad girl wearing blush.


I’m even inspired to makeover one of my settees. I haven’t decided on a new look for this gorgeous piece I acquired a couple of months ago…but now I’m thinking blush brocade!



You can find the Pinterest board here. I’d love to know if you find it as inspiring as I do! Because spring, after all, certainly can’t get here soon enough!

Oh, and should you decide you’d like to try your own blush-inspired boudoir session, give me a holler!

Wishing you health and happiness and glorious visions of springtime!
