Monday's Shoot - Kelsey

Last week I had plans to do a shoot with Kelsey, but she ran into some scheduling issues. Luckily I had Alice eager to make her debut, so the two models switched their photo dates. I did two photo sets with Alice last Monday (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Alice") and this Monday I was finally able to catch up with Kelsey today for the first time since 2013 for a set.

The reason it's been a while since Kelsey and I last shot is because she became a mother for the second time in 2014. And for that reason today, it set us back slightly due to her having to find a sitter for her sons. She made it work, however, and then went out to get a pedicure.

When Kelsey arrived at the nail salon she sent me a text to ask what color I'd like her to get on her toes. I replied, "Teal." 

Up until this point, Kelsey has never had teal or anything close in the blue or green range. I also shared with Kelsey how many requests I get for teal polish and she said that's what she'd get.

A short while later Kelsey and I met up to head to our location. She didn't have a long time, so we were only going to do one set. I knew of a place that isn't usually crowded, so we went to check it out to see if that would be the case today. Lucky for us, it was.

Kelsey and I made the walk along the boardwalk to a few benches that I figured would allow her to kick up her feet and remove her sneakers. Surprisingly, after all these years Kelsey had never done a set with any kind of footwear other than sandals and flip flops. With my love of women in sneakers and no socks and that was the order of the day.

It had been way too long since I got to see Kelsey's super soft feet.

It had been a long time since I got to gaze upon Kelsey's pillowy soft soles and plump toes, but I was in no rush. I made her pose in those shoes for quite a bit on this very warm day. The longer they stayed in there, the sweatier they would become.

Of course, that would eventually come to an end as Kelsey tugged on her shoe laces and that first round heel popped out. The shoe would slowly come up Kelsey's sole until it was hanging by her chubby toes. That's when I grabbed a shot for the Soles of Silk Instagram page (@SolesofSilk).

When I was done posting the photo to Instagram, Kelsey let the shoe fall from her foot and I grabbed some one shoe on/one shoe off photos. And as she did before, she went and pulled the laces for the second shoe. It didn't stay on long either and next thing I knew she was barefoot. I really did miss those super soft feet of hers. It had been too long.

The rest of the shoot saw Kelsey posing those feet every which way. I made sure to get some good shots of those teal toes along with those soles of hers. We finished up with a video clip where she kicked off her shoes once more and then called it a day.

As we returned to my car we talked about shooting something else again soon. I've always enjoyed taking Kelsey's photos and welcome any chance to do so again. Hopefully she can find some open time again soon!

Sunday's Shoot - Amelia

Back in January I added a blog to the Soles of Silk Blog titled, "Shoots to Look Forward to in 2015." In the piece I had a section about Amelia titled, "Speaking of Moving Models," where I talked about Amelia informing me that she would be moving out of state and how she wanted to try to squeeze in some photos beforehand. Needless to say, I was sad to hear she'd be moving.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago. While talking with her on the phone she mentioned to me that she was no longer moving away. I felt bad that her plans didn't work out, but at least that meant I'd be able to find more time to spend with this fun-loving model and friend of mine. We set a date, which was today, and boy did we ever have a blast!

After exchanging a few texts last night, Amelia told me she'd be going to get a pedicure at 11 a.m. when the store opened. After that, she'd be game for whatever I wanted to do. I said that's great and told her that I wanted to do two sets - the themes and locations I'd think about over night.

When I woke up this morning I had two ideas - one we sort of did and the other we did not. I didn't know where we would be shooting though. I felt so unprepared. I shared this with Amelia too. I've been dedicating so many hours to my full time job - both at the store and then outside of it doing advertisements and social media. Add in Soles of Silk's standard update schedule, and now getting back to doing shoots with the warmer weather and I've been even busier. Last and certainly not least, doing the blogs on the Wu's Feet Links Interviews and Columns blogs and yeah, been kind of pooped out!

Anyhow, I suggested to Amelia that after I pick her up we make a stop at a Five and Below store to see if anything sparked a photo set theme. That turned out to be a good call. 

We walked past a bucket of bug catching nets and I thought it would be a cute to have Amelia out in the woods catching bugs. As for the second set, the sort of planned one, that involved her wearing knee high socks. The ones I had were super bright and colorful. When we walked past a bin full of equally colorful playground balls I got the idea to do a dodge ball themed set. We then grabbed her a tie-dyed shirt to just overload the set with color. See, not having an idea isn't always a bad thing. Inspiration is everywhere and it didn't hurt that the props were all super cheap! I love Five and Below for getting props. Not the first time and certainly not the last.

Once Amelia and I left the store it was a short drive to the park I had in mind for the bug catching set. We walked around for about 10 minutes before we found our spot - two spots actually.

Amelia didn't catch any bugs, but she tried so hard!

Amelia's first few poses made use of some fallen trees in what used to be a marshy area. The water has been receding for years now, but the ground is still sandy and very soft. That also meant there was a good amount of bugs flying around. We were doing a bug catching set after all, so I just considered them to be natural props! But yeah, the only one Amelia caught flew in there on it's own. Yes, Amelia, it's true!

We shot a handful of photos on these trees, even getting those flats kicked off - which, of course, I playfully smelled. Amelia swore they stunk, but I didn't think so. She also said they're so old and she's had them since she was about 12. I just laughed and asked how they survived so long. I know girls who kill a pair of flats in a single summer. But it was now time to move along and try some shots at the other location we found just off the path.

This second location was a bunch of benches in what looked like a presentation area. Nature had long overgrown this spot as it looked like it hadn't been used in years. Perfect for us! For the rest of the set Amelia made use of these benches while making me lay out in the tall grass. The life of a foot fetish photographer, I tell ya! Oh well, at least I was getting to watch her cute toe spreads!

With the set done we finished up this location by shooting a video clip with those old smelly (according to her) flats. We then made our way back to the car and drove to a newly built high school. Sadly, when we arrived, the parking lot was full of cars and the courts were used by some younger kids. Not one to shoot around kids, we decided to head back toward home - making stops at some other schools on the way until we found some empty courts.

Yet again, luck would be on our side today as we found a school with no one on the property at all. The court even had a concrete wall that was painted white. Why was that important? Well, with all the color between Amelia's shirt, socks, and playground balls, it would help her stand out even more. I also decided it would be neat if Amelia also wore two different color socks in the set to add even more color.

This colorful set came together on the fly while we went shopping before the shoot.

The set began with Amelia wearing a pair of Vans and her socks. I shot a bunch of poses which had her work to pulling off her shoes. Once that had happened, those multi-colored feet were front and center.

Eventually the set would progress to the point where Amelia was barefoot, but the color was still everywhere. She used her socks as props and rolled the balls around under her little feet. Needless to say, ball jokes ran rampant as did a few other bits of adult humor. It really was a fun set to shoot!

Like we did before, we ended the set with a short video clip and then packed up our stuff. We made our way back to my car where I treated Amelia's feet to, "a long overdue" (her words) foot massage. Those words I totally agree with, Amelia. It was an awesome day with some awesome results. I'm glad we met up today to shoot and can't wait to do it again. However, there is no need to have "long overdue" foot rubs. Nope. I'd much rather you say, "It feels like only yesterday you rubbed my feet." To which I can reply, "That's because it was yesterday." Ha! Yeah, I'm a goof, but you knew that already!

I hope everyone enjoys these new photos of Amelia. She's looking forward to posing again and I'm looking just as forward to shooting even more great sets with her. We'd love to hear what you think or any shoot ideas for the future.

Monday's Shoot - Alice (New Model)

I always love the chance to shoot new models for Soles of Silk and today marks the first new model to be added to the site in 2015. Meet Alice.

I've worked with Alice for a few years now. When she turned 18 last year Alice was interested in modeling for the site, but we never made plans before the cold weather arrived. Over the winter we kept talking about shooting and Alice assured me it was something she really wanted to do. I said once the weather warmed up, she'd be doing just that.

Just a few days ago Alice and I were exchanging texts about scheduling her first shoot. We threw around several dates, but when Kelsey asked me if she could postpone the shoot she was scheduled to do today, I asked Alice if she wanted to go ahead and shoot. Her response was a resounding, "Yes." 

Now that I had Alice scheduled I had to figure out what exactly she was going to do for her first sets. I like to try to keep the first few sets simple so that the girls can get used to modeling for me. I asked her if she'd up for doing a set with socks and her response was, "I love socks!" Okay, that was easy. One theme down and one to go.

For the second set I asked her if she wanted to do a little ode to a fellow foot fetish model whose work I've shared with her and one who she admires. That model is none other than Whitney Morgan (@MsWhitneyMorgan). 

This single photo inspired one of Alice's first ever foot fetish sets. We're both fans of Whitney.

My idea for this shoot was to base an entire shoot theme around a single photo on Whitney's Twitter account that both Alice and I love - the photo above. But I'll get more into this set below.

I picked Alice up around 2:30 p.m. after she got home from class. It was a little chilly, but Alice said she was ready to go. We grabbed our stuff and went on our way.

I decided the first set should be the one with the socks. Since I had never shot Alice I wanted to give her the easiest of the two sets first. I also knew from past shoots that socks make for great props and would give her something to do in the set.

We found our way to a small park I've used a couple of times in the past. It's a nice spot that is usually not too crowded. Well, today we were practically the only ones in the entire park for the duration of the shoot. I was happy about that too so Alice would feel as comfortable as possible.

Alice and I walked out onto the pier and waited for the sun to tuck behind some clouds. It was a very cloudy day and I love the ability to have the sun diffused so I can shoot any direction I want. After a few minutes, we were underway.

Alice pulling socks of her size 11 feet in her first ever foot fetish set.

At the start of the shoot I focused on some full body shots, but when Alice began pulling off her socks, the set got quite fun. A few tugs here and a few tugs there had those socks off and finally showing those size 11's for the first time. I showed her a few of the photos and took a quick one for the site's Instagram account (@SolesofSilk). 

Alice admitted that she really liked the photos and said that she hopes posing for the site makes her feel more comfortable about her feet. Sadly, many girls with larger feet don't realize how many guys out there would actually adore that quality. I made sure to tell her just how many of you love bigger feet. When the likes and comments starting appearing on Instagram, I said, "See, I told you so!"

We took a handful more photos and then shot a video clip of her pulling the socks off again. She even threw the socks at me at the clip's finale. I should have kept them as souvenirs, but I knew how much she liked them and told her she could keep them instead.

Once the first set was in the books it was time to prepare for the second set. Preparing meant going to McDonald's. We needed a cheeseburger and a soda to give our ode to Whitney Morgan, but honestly, we were both hungry too! We took a few minutes to eat and then placed an order for our "props" to go.

After driving a few minutes to another park, I parked my car on the far side of the parking lot. by some trees. I was glad that the sun was still behind some cloud cover, even though it made it just a little bit cooler than I had planned on. I turned the heat on for Alice and threw on my jacket. With that I grabbed the camera and began shooting.

Alice started the set in the driver's seat of my new car - the one I got after trading in the 350z Mileena posed in back in her 2011 debut set. Mileena still hasn't forgiven me for trading in that car, but I digress.

The theme of this set was inspired by Whitney Morgan's photo, found above.

Alice grabbed the cheeseburger and took a quick bite. We shot some full body shots and then decided to emulate the exact pose Whitney did at the top of this blog - well, as close as we could get to it using my car. We didn't do too bad and both of us loved it. I took one with my phone for Instagram as well and tagged Whitney in the post (see photo). We both said how much we hoped she'd like it and the fact that she inspired a fellow producer and a brand new foot fetish model with her work.

After we paid our ode to Whitney's pose we went back to shooting the rest of the set itself. By the end of the set, Alice was having a blast sticking chicken nuggets and French fries between her long toes. She even asked if she were to eat one of them in the clip, if people would think it's weird. I assured her people would love it and she did just that.

Today turned out to be a great day shooting the site's newest model. I'm glad I was finally able to get Alice in front of the camera and I'm glad she had a blast doing these first two sets. I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing her do plenty more in the future! Welcome Alice and those cute size 11 feet!
