If you live in either North America or Europe, this winter has been a nasty one so far. Snow storms and bone-chilling cold have swept over us, making us all want to go into hibernation and long for the breezy days of summer. But in the midst of all this, we managed to entice Alece to fly up to Canada and shoot with us - in fact, she managed to get out of New York City in the small window of time when the airports were actually open. With her radiant beauty and sunny personality, she warmed us up but good. We threw on some Elvis, passed around the hot chocolate, and imagined a GAP commercial only minus the clothes. The result? We were quite happy to just let it snow.
