SMYRNA – In July, a photography crew and fashion model from Woman’s Day magazine visited a farm in Smyrna to set the scene for its latest fall fashions in its nationally-distributed November issue.
The crew traveled from their base of operations in downtown Manhattan in New York City to the Ingerto family farm nestled in the rolling valley of Smyrna.
The dairy farm along Beaver Meadow Road is the backdrop of the magazine’s Nov. 3 “New Knits” feature article.
The farm, run by Jay and Ginny Ingerto, was brought to the magazine’s attention by their 24-year-old daughter Colleen, who worked as a photography intern for the company this past summer.
“I was at work one day talking with my co-workers about how I grew up on a farm, and they were interested. They asked me to take some pictures. A few weekends later, I had the opportunity and when I came back and showed them the images, they fell in love with it,” said Colleen, who is finishing her last year at St. Rose College in Albany.
“Relatable, simple, easy and beautiful,” described Stephanie Kim, Woman’s Day photography director. “Just about anywhere you look, you can find a picturesque scene that’s just another part of the normal country life. It’s wonderful.”
