News & Notes - March 2017

Since Camille (right) debuted in 2015, it's been a hope of mine to get her to shoot with her older sister, and one of the site's most photographed models, Kayleigh.

I feel like it's been a while since I posted a general news and notes style blog entry. With spring upon us and shoots starting to be planned, I figured it was as good of time as any to give everyone some updates to what's going on with Soles of Silk.

Existing Models Contacted
Today I spent a few hours reaching out to all of my models who I still have contact information for. I shot them messages telling them that I hope to schedule something with them soon, and for those who haven't shoot in a while, that I'd love to get them back onto the site again. I ended up hearing back from a handful of them within minutes, or hours. Some of the others I had already talked to in recent weeks leading up today's mass contacting.

One of the first models I reached out to was Kayleigh. She hasn't had an update since February 2016. That set, however, was shot in 2014 and was one I held onto for some time. We lost touch for a bit and she's also been busy with family. Even with that being the case, Kayleigh remains one of the site's most photographed models, sitting at 1,434 at the time of this blog. She's truly been amazing with everything she's ever done and I miss having her shoot for me. It was time to see what she was up to and see if her adorable size 5.5 feet could come out and shoot!

I am happy to say that Kayleigh was very interested in getting together again when I heard back from her. It made me very happy to think that her photo count will rise once again. I don't know her availability just yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'd love for her to become one of my regulars again. I always loved shooting her and those adorable little feet. Hopefully we can plan something soon.

Kayleigh's younger sister, Camille, was also someone I reached out to today. In all honesty, I didn't think we'd be scheduling anything anytime soon since she still lives out of state. To my surprise, she messaged me telling me she's going to be home for a week in April and that we should plan a shoot. That made me so happy.

With these two sisters both getting back to me, it led me to pitch the idea to finally get them together. Kayleigh is actually texting me as I write this saying that she's game. I'm waiting to hear back from Camille, but I'm sure she'd love to shoot some stuff with her sister.

Charlee has done so much for me over the years, but we've lost touch as of late. We were finally able to talk again today and are looking to do some new sets again soon.

Kayleigh wasn't the only site veteran to get back to me today. And just like Kayleigh, this model hasn't shot a new set since 2014. That model is none other than Charlee. Charlee was someone I shot with regularly for several years. I established quite the collection of her sets. When our shoots slowed down due to our busy schedules and us losing touch, having all those sets came in handy. I was able to put one up every so often over that span of time. As a matter of fact, she just had her final set we shot published on February 22, 2017 - the set shown above.

I am happy to say that Charlee is quite excited for shooting some new sets too. She's sitting just shy 1,500 at 1,491. I'd like to see her (along with Kayleigh) go on to join the 2K Club (2,000 photos). Charlee is also long overdue for some foot rub time - something she's always loved about getting together to shoot. Obviously, it's something I've always loved too! Who loves it more is a question that might be impossible to answer.

She's only ever had one set on the site and I didn't know if she'd ever shoot again, but I got good news today. Paige Noelle is up for shooting more sets here in 2017.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of this mass contacting came just minutes ago when Paige Noelle replied to my message. Although she was up front about not getting the "foot thing," or caring much for her own years ago, I always found hers to be cute. Paige and I dated for several months years ago and I was lucky enough to get to shoot with her after we broke up, since we remained friends. It only ended up being the one set, that you can see above, but I had always hoped to do more with her. Well, she just told me she'd be game and that Mondays are her best day to shoot. Well, that's one of my two best days too. I can't wait to get her plump piggies back on camera again. She's long overdue, shooting her first and only set back in December 2007. It should be fun and it'll be so nice to gaze upon her soft feet again!

In recent days I've also talked to numerous other models from the site about getting together to shoot. I've made plans with Alice, as you probably read in the blog, "Big Plans For Big Feet," from earlier this week. Some of the other existing models who I've been chatting with include: Abby, Felicia, Jasey Rae, Kaycee, Kelsey, Mindee, Reagan, and Riley.

Another one of my site's most photographed models would be great to get back on the site on a more regular basis. I'm hoping I can get in touch with Cierra and make some plans.

Other models who I reached out to, but am waiting to hear back from include: Amber, Amelia, Ashlyn, Aspen, Bobbie, Carlin, Cierra, Colleen, Emerald, Jamie, Mileena, Nikki, Reese, Rein, RyanShayna, and Wendy.

Will all these models find time for me this year? I hope so, but I am also a realist and know that shoots will be missed, plans canceled, and some models will just not get back to me. It's been that way since I began, but I'm sure I'll have enough of them to shoot to fill up my open days on a regular basis.

Potential Models Contacted
Today I also reached out to a handful of ladies who have yet to shoot for the site. Some have talked to me about doing so, but have yet to kick off their shoes with my camera rolling. Others were told about it by friends and are still curious about the possibility.

The first of these potentials to get back to me today is one of Camille's friends. We used to work together, but she left and we really haven't been in touch since. Just today she accepted a friend request I had sent months ago. She always used to say how she wanted to shoot for me when we worked together, but there was a problem. She wasn't old enough. She knew that Camille's older sister, Kayleigh, did it. Camille told her about it when she wasn't old enough to shoot yet. She also know that Camille wanted to shoot when she turned 18 in 2015, which she did. So she used to tell me how she was going to do it too and I'd just laugh and say, "Okay! Once you turn 18, you're more than welcome." Well, she turned 18 not too long ago, so I asked her if it was something she still wanted to do today when I saw she accepted my friend request. She is also texting me as I write this blog saying she's game and to let her know when. I think you'll all like her as she's super cute and tiny.

I didn't luck out with the second person who got back to me though. She's one of Ryan's friends who showed interest some time ago. We lost touch not too soon after Ryan initially told her and another friend about the site. I just figured she wasn't interested anymore and left it at that. Today, however, I decided to say hello and just ask about her interest in shooting. She said she'd keep it in mind, but right now she's just super busy and doesn't think it'll happen. Oh well! You win some and you lose some. She's also super cute, so hopefully one day she'll be game. I told her the door is always open. As for the other friend of Ryan's, I contacted her too, but no response as of yet.

As many of you have seen over the last month or so, I have been in talks with two new models who I was introduced to through Alice. If you haven't seen the blog, "Girls Night = A Great Night," check that out to see a photo of the three of them together. Both friends are looking forward to shooting and the one photographed in that blog, on the right, will be making her debut on April 9, as long as all goes to plan. The second friend is eager to shoot as well, so be on the lookout for that. I'm sure you'll be seeing both friends with Alice at some point as well.

I also recently made mention of a friend of mine who is looking to shoot. I featured her in the blog, "Sweet Sole Shots From a Sexy Friend," back in February. She and I have been just waiting to get her pretty feet on the site for her debut for most of the winter now. I'm hoping she becomes a site regular as her fun loving personality is infectious.

I do have another potential model in limbo right now. She's a tiny little thing who also recently turned 18. Like the girl at the start of this section, she used to work with me and wanted to shoot as well. I also told her she could once she turned 18. In a recent conversation with her, she said she'd like to do it, but isn't 100 percent sure yet. I told her I understand and to let me know. I'm really hoping she does because I've never had much luck with black girls and this girl is just adorable. She also said she barely wears a size 5 shoe. I'm hoping...

The last potential new model is one I talked to during the winter. She seemed very interested in shooting and learned of the site through Camille. Sadly she contacted me so late into 2016 that it was already cold outside. Since I mostly shoot outdoors, I told her we should aim for the spring. She agreed and we talked a couple of times since. Lately, however, she hasn't gotten back to me. I'm hoping she's still up for it. I might ask Camille to get in touch with her to see.

As you can see, 2017 is looking like a memorable year. I love shooting all my existing/regular models. If it wasn't for all of you, this wouldn't be possible. Getting to add in some new models on top of that is just as good as I get to meet new people and have all new experiences moving forward. I thank all these ladies for making this possible. I am looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Big Plans for Big Feet

Alice's feet are so big! And that's why I love them so very much!

Since Alice burst onto the scene back in the spring of 2015 (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Alice"), she's quickly become one of my most regular models. We met up a total of five times in 2015, shooting 11 sets - two of which were with Camille. In 2016 we met up five more times, shooting 11 more sets. That's 22 sets in two years! Yes, yes... I know, some of the sets haven't made it onto the site yet, but that's what happens when you shoot so many with one particular model.

In just under two years Alice has become one of my go-to models. She's very similar to Mindee in so many regards. Both are super fun loving and casual. They love getting in some camera time. The two of them are always throwing ideas at me for future sets. And sometimes, I can even hit them up on a moment's notice for a quick set. That's exactly what happened for Alice's last set of 2016. She asked me if I wanted to get in one last set before it got too cold outside. I declined as I had shot a ton of sets that I had yet to use at that point. As the days went by, however, I said, "Why not?"

I sent Alice a text and asked her if she still had the day open. She did and we made plans. A few days later we met up for a quick set in a location we had looked up on Google Earth. A couple of factors weren't on our side, but we still made it work (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Alice"). And most of all, I got to spend the day with her. I always treasure that. It's never a bad time when we're out there exploring and shooting photos.

That final set of 2016 was the last set I've shot with Alice as of the time I'm writing this. You best bet 2017 will pick right back up where she left off, however. Actually, I'm trying to have her shoot even more, if she has the time. She's expressed interest in it as well. Her big feet and fun loving self will certainly be welcome whenever we can find the time to make something happen.

As a matter of fact, in a little over a week, Alice should be shooting with another model, a friend of hers that you saw in the blog titled, "Girl's Night = A Great Night." If all goes as planned, the friend of hers that you see photographed to the right, at the top of that blog, will be teaming up with Alice for her debut. I won't go into the details of what we have planned just yet, but I have a funny feeling that shooting it should be quite teasing! I'm also hoping to get in a couple solo sets with both girls as well.

The other friend of Alice's that you saw in that photo has also been in contact with me. She's very eager to shoot as well. I'm sure you'll be seeing her feet right alongside Alice's before long. And don't forget about my plans to shoot the three of them together either! That's going to be awesome! If I can even handle the camera with that trio tempting me with their soles and wiggling toes...

So far, Alice has only shot with one other model - Camille. If I have my way in 2017, that's surely going to change!

While on the topic of shooting Alice with other models, I've already talked to a few of my other models about a possible team up. At some point I'm hoping to see Alice's feet next to the following model's: Mindee, Kelsey, Jasey Rae, and Abby. I won't lie, I've thought about seeing if I could get her with Felicia and Kaycee at some point too. And a long time ago, I mentioned to both Alice and Riley how awesome it would be to see their vastly different feet together in a set. Maybe, just maybe...

That's a lot of team ups. Maybe too many to all get in over the course of 2017. That being said, I will try my best to see what I can do. If not, however, another sure bet you can place is that Alice will be shooting a lot of solo work too. As fun as team ups can be, Alice's big size 11 feet are so impressive, they deserve their own spotlight. Any set with those large feet front and center is one I want on my camera and on this site. It also is nice because that means I'll be able to totally focus on giving them the loving foot massage both those big feet truly deserve. She's already told me I'm going to be spending lots of time tending to them. Her solo shoots will afford that much needed time for that to happen. Of course, however, I will be tending to them quite a bit during any team ups too. If I'm lucky enough for multi-model foot massages, Alice's feet are still getting my loving attention. Hope the other models don't get too jealous...

As far as all the sets that have already been shot with Alice go, 2017 will be an amazing year in that regard as well. I can brag that even if I didn't shoot a set with Alice in all of 2017, she'd still make a massive mark on the site! Thankfully, that's not the case, however, and we'll be spending lots of time together shooting new material and making new memories.

Many of you know that Alice is set to be the July 2017 Wu's Feet Links feature model. The blog, "Weekly Teaser - Alice's July 2017 Wu's Feet Links Feature" is one of the most visited blog entries of all time here on the Soles of Silk Blog. Each week people have been checking out the newest removal as the teaser image slowly reveals itself. It's been a long term tease to say the least, but that's just how Alice likes it!

In addition to Alice's feature set, she will also be featured in a Fourth of July themed set here on the site. I'm also going to use her shark bites set during Shark Week 2017. Both those sets were actually shot the same day as the feature set, along with another one you won't want to miss. Needless to say, the summer is going to get kicked off in a big way... with some big sexy feet! If you're not familiar with what sets I'm talking about, check out teasers from each in the blog titled, "Sunday's Shoot - Alice."

I have also reached out to Alice with a few more interview ideas for her upcoming content. She was ever so eager to take part, as she usually is. Not only will you be getting to see a lot more of her, but also find out more about her too. We're going to talk about the sets she's done, some of her memories from our shoots, and many other things related to her big teasing feet. I'll be sure to ask her how good I am at rubbing her feet. I'm sure she'll want to have me get some more hands on experience for her to base her opinion on... or is that me being hopeful?

For the next few weeks I'll be looking forward to making all these ideas start to happen. We've already confirmed a shoot for April 9, one that is surely going to be memorable and see her shooting with that first friend I mentioned above. Keep checking back on this blog and on the site's Instagram account (@SolesofSilk) to see all the newest sample shots from these sets. And if you have any themes or ideas for Alice and her long feet, we'd love to read them. I have a feeling we'll shoot more than enough sets to squeeze in a few requests... Well, unless I dedicate all that extra time to pampering her pretty feet. Could you blame me if I did?
