For our fall fashion shoot, we visited the Hudson Woods development. The 131-acre property is off the beaten path outside Kerhonkson, in the hamlet of Tabasco. To get there, you have to pass a cute little Tabasco sign that seems lifted straight from a Norman Rockwell painting. For more on Hudson Woods, see page 38.

The clothing for our fall shoot was furnished by de Marchin in Hudson, Living Eden in Red Hook, Gwenno James in Beacon, and hats are from Katie Burley in Beacon. Our models were Simone Chin Chitty, Esther de Jong, Jordan Lepore, and Perpetua Smith. Lauren Weber was the make-up artist. Ryan Pinetti provided the hair styling.

    Franco Vogt has one of those personalities. Short and witty with a full-faced smile, the photographer and his wife of 22 years, Lucia Reale-Vogt, have earned a reputation in the Hudson Valley for making their subjects comfortable in front of the camera.
