One of the nicest things about traveling with a model is getting to wake up with her. Not in the literal sense, of course. In that sense that when you meet up for coffee in the morning you get to experience her beauty in a totally unexpected way. When we shot with Alece at Kathleen's Barn in Tivoli, New York, Alece stayed in the funky converted barn and we stayed in the main house. The next morning we arrived at the barn bright and early for more shooting and Alece had just woken up, and when she strolled outside naked for a stretch and a yawn and her first cup of coffee, it was such a delightful, natural sight that we couldn't help but take a few pictures. Alece didn't mind, and gamely vamped for the camera. We found these few charming photos recently, and decided to share them with you as a mini-set, something pleasant for you to start your day with when you need something nice to wake up to.
