Model Leah Hotte relaxes on Durand Eastman Beach, Rochester, Monroe County, New York, on the first nice day of the year. Despite the nice weather, it was freezing on the lake but Leah was a good sport about it.

Sherwood Forest Motor Inn

Sherwood Forest Inn
Lake Placid, New York was home to the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics and sits in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, so it’s been a tourist destination for decades. Establishments like the Sherwood Forest Motor Inn, at 15 Knottingham Road (off New York State Route 86), offer affordable accommodations for vacationing families.

Luna at Conesus Lake

Sunny Luna

In this series, I met Luna at Vitale Park on Conesus Lake, one of the Finger Lakes in central New York, on the first beautiful day of the year. She wore a lovely red floral ruffle wrap cami dress and striped cut-out midi dress from Express. It was a challenge to get the lighting right in the afternoon, but I think we got some great shots.

A tribute to Harmony Korine’s Gummo

My tribute to Harmony Korine’s Gummo (1997), filmed in Syracuse, New York. Gummo is an art film written and directed by Harmony Korine, starring Jacob Reynolds, Nick Sutton, Jacob Sewell, and Chloë Sevigny. It’s set in Xenia, Ohio, a small, poor Midwestern town devastated by a tornado.

My version of ”Bunny Boy” was played by Daisy Rose. The original bunny ears hat was custom made by Chloë Sevigny, so I had to use ears from Bob’s Burgers. “I Love my Little Rooster” sung by Almeda Riddle, recorded by John Quincy Wolf, Jr. on May 10, 1962, courtesy of The John Quincy Wolf Folklore Collection, Lyon College, Batesville, Arkansas.
