Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2011

At the end of 2013 I decided to make a blog entry titled, My 10 Favorite Photo Shoots of 2013. It was the first time I ever took a look back to pick my favorite sets from a calendar year. I planned on doing it again here for 2014, but then I began to think about doing it for years past to further go along with this year being the site's 10th year online. I thought it might make for a fun little stroll down memory lane with some of the site's best sets with models who may or may not be posing anymore.

I'm sticking with the criteria I used for the 2013 favorites as a guide for this series. Only sets that were published during that year will be featured, regardless of when they were shot. I'm also leaving out Wu's Feet Links Feature Model galleries. Only the sets published to Soles of Silk will be eligible. With that said, let's take a look at my favorite shoots of 2011:






10. The Bridge by the Docks

Model(s): Abby
Published Date: August 24, 2011

It had been three years since Abby had done any sets for Soles of Silk. People were really missing her soft, wrinkled soles - as was I. When we finally got back together, we did a set I totally fell in love with immediately. 


We went to a historic town and found a spot under a train bridge on some docks. Abby showed off those soles that so many of us had missed for way too long. I was so glad to have her back and so glad to show this set off to the masses!







9. By the Marsh

Model(s): Olivia
Published Date: October 19, 2011

Olivia makes this list with one of the sets she shot on her very first adventure posing for Soles of Silk. This was the second set we shot on the day. It was a simple location we found looking for one more area to use, so no real planning went into it. 


She started off in flip flops and then kicked her bare feet onto the railing. The views I got of her feet were amazing and as she well knows, I fell in love with her heavenly feet that day. I've been her biggest fan since. 







8. Kickball

Model(s): Jamie & Charlee
Published Date: September 21, 2011

Charlee and Jamie were after me for months to do a set together. They ended up doing two sets together and this one was themed to one of my favorite childhood sports - kickball. 


We picked up matching socks and shirts before we hit the field. I had both girls get their feet dirty right off the bat, which I believe makes this set the only one with dirty socks. Once the socks began to be pulled off though, the girls really began to have fun - tugging on each other's to get them off. So cute... So fun...







7. Feet by the Fountain

Model(s): Carlin
Published Date: October 5, 2011

Carlin and I met up one day after I got off work to do some new photos. We went downtown and shot two different locations - this was the second. 


Both sets that day involved Carlin wearing some tennis shoes without socks as I shared my passion for smelly female feet with her some time beforehand. She thought it was cute and brought a couple of pairs to use. 

In addition to the shoe theme I love, the location we used for this set is so different than anything I've used. I've shot in the city before, but this location was smack dab in the middle of a roundabout that features a water fountain. People walked and drove by, checking us out. Carlin did her thing and showed off those adorable feet regardless and I got a set I just loved.







6. Condom Size Tease

Model(s): Charlee
Published Date: April 13, 2011

Charlee was very eager to do a size teasing set having seen the ones done by several other models on the site in the past. One day when I was walking around Spencers in the mall I saw some gag condoms and thought they'd be perfect. One of them was the size of one a little finger and the other could fit all the way around a fist. 


I sent a snapshot of the condoms to Charlee and she pretty much told me to buy them. She wanted them for her set, so I did as I was told. When we finally got to shoot it, Charlee was in great spirits and as teasing as ever! She really let me... I mean, all the small guys have it in this one.







5. Banana Creampie Pudding & Vanilla Wafers

Model(s): Mindee
Published Date: December 14, 2011

Mindee debuted in 2004 when the site launched. She didn't do a food set until 2011, which is totally surprising. It wasn't because she didn't want to, we just never did. 


When we booked a hotel room to do a few sets I told her it was the perfect chance to do one. She agreed. I decided to use banana creampie pudding, vanilla wafers, and milk for the set and Mindee loved the idea. She brought some sleepwear to do the set in and it worked to perfection. 

All I have to say is Mindee dribbling that pudding down her toes and soles was one of my favorite experiences shooting this amazing friend. I can't tell you how many times I stuck my finger out to scoop off some of that pudding off her feet to enjoy it myself. And the cookies between her toes were all mine to eat - according to Mindee.







4. Sports Car Model

Model(s): Mileena
Published Date: July 27, 2011

I had asked Mileena to pose for Soles of Silk for years. She finally agreed to do so, but had the condition that she got to do a set with my car, a black Nissan 350Z - one that she's mad that I just sold. 


Anyhow, I asked if she'd mind doing the set with some black thigh high stockings. She thought about it and agreed. All I have to say is it was great watching Mileena show off her tiny adorable feet, both in stockings and without. Mileena has posed for so many great sets and she didn't waste any time doing them on her very first day posing.







3. At the Marina

Model(s): Colleen
Published Date: May 11, 2011

This set was actually shot immediately after Colleen's motorcycle set that was named the #4 in the "Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2010" blog entry. Since it takes me some time to get sets online since I shoot in bulk, this set ends up making the list in 2011 since it was published in May. 


We hit up a marina and posed all over the docks and on a porch. Colleen's feet looked amazing, as did the rest of her body in that little white dress. Top it off (or would that be bottom it off?) with those black toes and it was a set I just loved - as did everyone who saw it. 

Between this set and the motorcycle set from the previous year and Colleen's stock shot straight up making her immensely popular.







2. Duck Pond

Model(s): Ryan
Published Date: July 6, 2011

Shooting Ryan was perhaps the site's biggest kept secret. She had turned 18 and was waiting for me to shoot her only because the plan was to debut her in a Wu's Feet Links feature set, which turned out to be the "Sexiest Catch" feature at the end of June. 


The following week I debuted her on Soles of Silk in this set we did by a pond, which I'd later use in Mileena's set above - well, the near by parking lot, anyhow. This set almost ended up being the feature set as Ryan and I shot a few sets and were debating on which one we liked best. It ended up being the fishing set, but this one was a close second and one of the favorites I did in 2011.







1. Log Cabin

Model(s): Mindee
Published Date: November 16, 2011

Mindee and I went to a park I used to go to as a child to catch turtles. We did a set down by the water, but I had also thought about using another location at the park I had never really been to before. 


On top of a hill sits a small log cabin I think the park uses for storage. No one was around that day so we decided to use it. Mindee wore Ugg boots and some socks for the set and watching her take them off provided some of the best sole shots I've taken of Mindee, or any other model. And those teal toes... Such a simple set turned into one of my favorites for 2011 and of the site's entire existence.


Honorable Mentions (6): Mileena - Pond, Marcy - Track Socks, Kelsey - Black Bottoms, Kayleigh - Amusement Park Rides, Jordana - Size Tease Shirt, Cierra - Blueberry Pancakes

So what photo sets were your favorites from this year? I thank you for taking a look back with me at a little bit of this site's history. These 10 years online have flown by so quick!

Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2010

At the end of 2013 I decided to make a blog entry titled, My 10 Favorite Photo Shoots of 2013. It was the first time I ever took a look back to pick my favorite sets from a calendar year. I planned on doing it again here for 2014, but then I began to think about doing it for years past to further go along with this year being the site's 10th year online. I thought it might make for a fun little stroll down memory lane with some of the site's best sets with models who may or may not be posing anymore.

I'm sticking with the criteria I used for the 2013 favorites as a guide for this series. Only sets that were published during that year will be featured, regardless of when they were shot. I'm also leaving out Wu's Feet Links Feature Model galleries. Only the sets published to Soles of Silk will be eligible. With that said, let's take a look at my favorite shoots of 2010:






10. Blowing Bubbles

Model(s): Nikki
Published Date: November 10, 2010

I grew up with Nikki as a kid. She was the youngest sister of one of my best friends at the time. After I went to college we didn't really see much of each other, but thanks to social media, we were able to connect many years later. 


I mentioned the site to her and she said she'd give it a try, but said she didn't think much of her feet - even saying her sister always teased her about them. Well, her feet were simply adorable and this bubble blowing set was a fun one to shoot. 

I loved the playful attitude in this one, which had many great views of her slender soles. Needless to say, tons of people said her sister was VERY wrong in the assessment of her feet.






9. Wildwood Boardwalk

Model(s): Jamie
Published Date: August 4, 2010

I've had a few models who either posed on their 18th birthday, or within a couple days of turning legal. Jamie is one of them - doing so on the following day. 


We planned a day trip to Wildwood, NJ and this was the very first set we did. I loved the main entrance to the boardwalk with the beach balls, Wildwood sign, and dunes. Add in Jamie and her barely legal soles and it just worked! We went on to do several other great sets that day too, but for some reason I always come back to this one as my favorite from the day.







8. Gray Boots

Model(s): Aliza
Published Date: November 10, 2010

I just finished mentioning how I've had models pose within a few days of turning 18 in Jamie's post above. Here is another model who did just that - and to top it off, she did so on a day that was kind of chilly. Add in the fact that we were right by the water and she sure was a trooper! 


Having a thing for Asian girls to begin with, this set was one I was loving simply on that aspect alone. But this set has a lot more going for it as her little soft feet come right out of her boots - with no socks. The setting is unique and she just flat out looked great! She sure made a splash upon her debut too, so I wasn't the only one who loved it.







7. Old Window

Model(s): Carlin
Published Date: September 15, 2010

A few weeks prior to Aliza's debut I debuted another girl who was a smash hit in Carlin. I always had a "thing" for Carlin back in high school, but never really talked to her like that, or really at all, to be honest. Fast forward many years later and she's finally posed for Soles of Silk. 


We found this old run down smelting building in a park that was in ruins. Places like that lend themselves to unique photography and Carlin sure made it work! The fedora was her touch and one I really liked. Dirty feet fans also liked this one as her soles quickly got dusty from all the debris.







6. Getting Muddy

Model(s): Marcy
Published Date: June 9, 2010

It doesn't get any dirtier than this one! I planned a shoot with Marcy one week day and it was raining its ass off! With a small break in the rain, Marcy asked if I still wanted to shoot. I said yes and recommended getting her feet muddy as the opportunity was there to use. She agreed.


When I picked her up she was wearing jeans and a shirt that she said she didn't care if they got muddy. I said I wasn't planning on getting more than her feet muddy, but her response was that she was "getting all up in that mud." That she did!







5. Cousins & Candy Canes

Model(s): Marcy & Mindee
Published Date: December 22, 2010

Since Mindee and Marcy are cousins I had always wanted to shoot them together. This was the first time I got to do it and it was done to a candy canes theme. 


I'll be the first to admit, getting these two together on camera is a handful - and also a face full. I'd be hard pressed to think of a set where there were more shenanigans off camera (and even on) than there was with this set. And damn do their feet look so good together!







4. Garage Top Motorcycle

Model(s): Colleen
Published Date: July 14, 2010

Colleen debuted the year prior, but we only managed to get in one quick set. But in 2010 she did a few more and man were they great! 


This set was done on her motorcycle up on the parking garage of a mall. The motorcycle was 100 percent her idea and one I was ever so happy to do as well. I love when my models have suggestions or include things they like in their sets. I feel they're so much more into the sets if they know about it, or it's something that interests them. As you can see, Colleen sure nailed this one!







3. Trix are for Toes

Model(s): Cierra
Published Date: March 24, 2010

Cierra's feet and food have found their way into these lists a few times now. After doing two other sets that day, including the #2 set on this list below, Cierra and I went into her kitchen to shoot the Trix cereal set. 


Cierra poured the bowl of cereal and posed her feet all around and inside the bowl. Eventually the milk was also poured and the fun escalated quickly! 

As I said in the 2010 entry to this blog (see blog: "Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary: My 10 Favorite Sets: 2009"), this girl absolutely loves to have her feet squishing food. And when I couldn't think she'd do it any better than the cookie dough set from the year before, she does this. It might not have been as messy, but damn was it cute!







2. Crazy for Converse

Model(s): Cierra
Published Date: January 13, 2010

In the set shot prior to the Trix set above, #3 on the this list, Cierra posed with a bunch of her Converse shoes. She is a huge fan of Chuck Taylor's and pulled out only a small handful of the ones she owned for this set. 


In the set you can see her presenting above were my favorite of the bunch, and most colorful. That is one thing this set had going for it was the color, but when it came to the fetish aspects, it was even better. Sweaty feet, shoes, and Cierra's fun loving, and slightly teasing attitude make this one of my all time favorite sets of hers.







1. After Practice Socks

Model(s): Ginger
Published Date: September 8, 2010

It took me forever to get Ginger to pose, but I was able to get her to do this football themed set soon after her debut. She brought her own jersey and borrowed a friend's black shoes. I bought her the socks and a football and went out to a school to shoot. 


The original plan was to go out on the field, but due to a team practicing, we stuck to the bleachers. Sometimes things come out better than you planned as the photos I got in the bleachers were amazing. I easily rank this as one of my all time favorite sets I've done since the start of the site in 2004. 

Ginger really had fun with this and watching her kick off and play with both her friend's shoes and black socks was awesome. We did manage to go out onto the field as well for a quick mini-set I posted as an extra to this set, but the bleachers were where the magic happened.


Honorable Mentions (8): Mindee - Roller Coasters, Mindee - Flats, Marcy - Barely Legal, Layla - Stocking Size Tease, Kellie - Foosball, Jordana - New Years, Jordana & Briezzy Lane - Lotion, Jamie - Surf

So what photo sets were your favorites from this year? I thank you for taking a look back with me at a little bit of this site's history. These 10 years online have flown by so quick!

Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2009

At the end of 2013 I decided to make a blog entry titled, My 10 Favorite Photo Shoots of 2013. It was the first time I ever took a look back to pick my favorite sets from a calendar year. I planned on doing it again here for 2014, but then I began to think about doing it for years past to further go along with this year being the site's 10th year online. I thought it might make for a fun little stroll down memory lane with some of the site's best sets with models who may or may not be posing anymore.

I'm sticking with the criteria I used for the 2013 favorites as a guide for this series. Only sets that were published during that year will be featured, regardless of when they were shot. I'm also leaving out Wu's Feet Links Feature Model galleries. Only the sets published to Soles of Silk will be eligible. With that said, let's take a look at my favorite shoots of 2009:






10. Cheesecake Crush

Model(s): Jaylee Austin
Published Date: March 18, 2009

What's a good way to get one of your model's younger sisters to do her first foot fetish set? Well, after you ask her, you break her in by having her squish cold cheesecake under her feet. That's exactly how Layla and I broke in Jaylee Austin to the scene and boy did she have fun doing it. 


It was such a blast watching her reactions with Layla right there in the room laughing right along with us. Jaylee totally owned this first set of hers, making a huge mess in the process.






9. Sweaty on the Courts

Model(s): Layla
Published Date: January 14, 2009

From one sister to another, Layla did this set on a sweltering hot day. She threw on some sporty attire and we went to some local courts for a set. We began on the tennis courts, but then a few people showed up to play tennis. I was surprised since it was so hot, but not wanting to attract too much attention, we walked over to the basketball courts to finish the set. 


I couldn't believe how sweaty Layla's feet were after she pulled off her tennis shoes and socks. It was awesome seeing them glisten in the bright sunlight. I wanted to shove my nose between her toes so bad.







8. Fudge Pop Fun

Model(s): Kelsey
Published Date: April 22, 2009

This was probably the funnest set I've shot with Kelsey - and she's done quite a few sets I'd deem as "fun." 


I came up with the idea to do a fudge pop set a few days before, but when I was buying the pops I saw these small vanilla pops too. The naughty gears in my head began to spin and I ended up buying both. 

The way the set turned out, let's just say the chocolate pops got most of the play as the vanilla pops were made to melt just out of reach of Kelsey's super soft feet.







7. Lotion & Baby Oil Don't Mix

Model(s): Madison
Published Date: August 19, 2009

This is one of the most bizarre sets I ever shot for Soles of Silk. I've done too many sets with lotion to count. I've also done a ton of baby oil sets as well. But what if I did both at the same time? 
That was the question I asked myself and when I posed it to Madison, she said, "Let's find out." 

Madison began the set with the lotion and then squirted the baby oil onto her feet afterward. From there we added a little more of both here and there. The two didn't really mix, causing the lotion to turn into gooey white clumps that looks a lot like something that it actually is not. But if it were, talk about a LOT of it!







6. Stockings in the Tub

Model(s): Layla
Published Date: August 5 & 12, 2009 (2 part post)

If you checked out the Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2008 blog entry, then you already know Layla is good when it comes to bringing out sexiness in a set. That happened again in 2009 when we decided to do a wet stockings set. 


Members requested this theme a few times so I bought some bright pink thigh highs to try it out with. Layla had a teal top, which I was worried wouldn't match. In hindsight, however, having multiple bright colors really made this better. But my favorite was seeing those wet stockings clinging for dear life to her curvy feet.








5. Waterfront Bench

Model(s): Mindee
Published Date: July 29, 2009

Mindee and I set out to find a few locations to use for shoots in Maryland's capital of Annapolis in 2009. This set was the first one we did, which took place on a bench right by the naval yard. 


It was a beautiful waterfront location with a lot of trees and bushes on backside of the bench. Mindee's bright colored dress and toes made this one pop! Mindee looked so good in this set and it was a big hit with her fans, and even gained her some new ones.







4. Ballpark Mud

Model(s): Layla & Chrystine
Published Date: April 1, 2009

When Layla and Chrystine shot together and I pitched the idea of doing a two girl dirty feet set, they loved it. There was one issue, however. It had been super hot for some time and there wasn't really much dirt/mud around to make use of. 
Layla mentioned a near by ball diamond. We got in the car and went to check it out. 

The girls started posing in the dirt, but it was so dry and literally hard as a rock. Luckily we brought some water bottles with us since it was so hot, so the girls began splashing the area they were standing with water. It took a little grinding of their feet into the dirt, but it started to stick to their feet - some of the dirt getting really gooey in the process. 

Since it was so hot though, it dried very quickly onto their feet. It ended up giving a unique look to the dirt on their feet - something I can't really say happened in any of the other dirty/muddy feet sets I've done on the site.






3. (tie) Tootsie Rolls & Socks & Blow Pops & Socks

Model(s): Kayleigh
Published Date: October 21 & October 28, 2009


Kayleigh couldn't wait to shoot for Soles of Silk, so much so, she did it on her 18th birthday. We did two Halloween themed sets, one with Tootsie Rolls and a Tootsie Roll shirt and socks and the other, with Blow Pops and a Blow Pops shirt and socks. 
Both sets were awesome and marked the first time I had a model debut and then be the very next week's update as well. 

The Tootsie Roll set was the first one we did and people loved the whole "tootsie" reference for toes with the candy of choice. Of course they loved the socks and her shoving them between her toes as well.

The Blow Pops set was the second set and also one that so many people came to love. It was just so colorful, cute, and full of Kayleigh's fun loving attitude.

Having these two sets kick off Kayleigh's debut on the site sure gave her a lot of fans immediately - something that has never changed over the years since.







2. Sherbet Soles

Model(s): Madison
Published Date: May 6, 2009

I had done a banana split shoot with Amber back in 2004 (see blog: "Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary: My 8 Favorite Sets: 2004"), but sherbet had never been done. 


When Madison recommended doing ice cream I mentioned Amber's shoot, but suggested sherbet. She said perfect and I was off to the store on the way to her house to get some. 

With this set I made sure to get in a lot of barefoot shots before Madison squished anything under her long feet. Once she did start the squishing, however, they more or less just glistened and got really sticky since the sherbet isn't milky like ice cream. The stickiness from the sherbet did lend itself well to having the broken cones cling to her feet though.







1. Squishy Mud

Model(s): Kimmie
Published Date: July 1, 2009

This set wasn't even a planned idea. I showed up to Kimmie's place to do some solo sets and it began raining right as I was pulling into her driveway. 


Waiting to see if the rain would pass, since I wanted to shoot outside, we decided to do a set indoors while we waited. As we finished that set we saw a break in the rain, but the news said it wouldn't last long as more rain was headed our way. 

We walked outside and saw all the mud around the garage and decided it would make for a great, quick set. Kimmie got changed and then squished her tiny feet into some really gooey mud. The poses, the bright blue shirt and colors throughout the set really popped. Her feet look so damn cute covered in the mud too. After we did the clip, the rain started to fall once again, so I call that a great use of time!


Honorable Mentions (7): Kellie, Kimmie, & Keira - 3 Girl Tickle, Kimmie - Zipper Heels, Kelsey - Lighthouse, Kellie - Toe Painting, Jordana - Lots of Shoes, Cierra - Ravens Stadium, Charlee - Popsicles

So what photo sets were your favorites from this year? I thank you for taking a look back with me at a little bit of this site's history. These 10 years online have flown by so quick!

Soles of Silk 10 Year Anniversary - My 10 Favorite Sets: 2008

At the end of 2013 I decided to make a blog entry titled, My 10 Favorite Photo Shoots of 2013. It was the first time I ever took a look back to pick my favorite sets from a calendar year. I planned on doing it again here for 2014, but then I began to think about doing it for years past to further go along with this year being the site's 10th year online. I thought it might make for a fun little stroll down memory lane with some of the site's best sets with models who may or may not be posing anymore.

I'm sticking with the criteria I used for the 2013 favorites as a guide for this series. Only sets that were published during that year will be featured, regardless of when they were shot. I'm also leaving out Wu's Feet Links Feature Model galleries. Only the sets published to Soles of Silk will be eligible. With that said, let's take a look at my favorite shoots of 2008:






10. Pirate Fantasy Room - Hot Tub

Model(s): Jordana
Published Date: June 25, 2008

When planning a shoot with Jordana she mentioned a fantasy suite hotel she had used with another photographer. There were a number of different rooms, each themed differently. I looked through the rooms and really liked the one themed to Treasure Island and pirates. 


The room had so many neat things and I knew the hot tub would result in an awesome set even before I shot it. Add in the fact that Jordana brought a bikini with a skull & cross bones over her left breast and it was just perfect. The end of the set though... that was awesome. Having been in the hot water for a while, Jordana's already wrinkly feet had pruned up as well. Talk about adorable!






9. Billiards & Blue Balls

Model(s): Danielle
Published Date: June 11, 2008

Danielle had come back to Maryland to shoot with another photographer for another site and asked me if I wanted to come over and shoot her as well. The photographer was totally cool with it and Danielle and I made use of his billiards table while he was off shooting Barbie in the meantime. Of course Danielle grabbed the blue balls to use as a little symbolism as she was quite the dominant one!







8. Sweaty Shoes, Socks, & Soles

Model(s): Mindee & Cierra
Published Date: January 9, 2008

Four years into the site's existence it was great to get two of its original models together, especially since they are such great friends. 


Watching Mindee and Cierra pull off each other's tennis shoes and socks was nothing short of fun! This is also where I first really noticed how sweaty Cierra's feet are. I don't know how that eluded me for four years, or if it is something that began happening later in life for my small-footed friend. Mindee's comment on how sweaty they were totally embarrassed Cierra, but made me really take notice. Since then, it's become her trademark and one I just absolutely love. Another thing I absolutely loved was seeing all four of their feet side by side. Wow...







7. Stockings in the Kitchen

Model(s): Layla
Published Date: May 18, 2008

One thing I love about shooting Layla is her versatility. She can pull off anything, especially sexy! It wasn't the first set she shot that I'd deem as "sexy," but it sure was one that raised the bar! 


Her skimpy outfit and those black stockings had me in love with the set even before I turned on the camera. Once I began taking the pictures, the camera wasn't the only thing "turned on!" And once they were published, I'm sure that carried over to a good many people as well.







6. Blue Vacuum

Model(s): Madison
Published Date: August 13, 2008

Madison had a knack for turning the simplest set into a hit. I can't say I was expecting too much out of a set where posed with her vacuum, but she made it one I just loved in hindsight. 


There are so many great views of her adorable narrow soles and dark pink toes in this set. Of course she was a tease during the shoot, putting the long black hose between her arches too. That's Madison for ya - teasing me with subtle little hints all while making me gaze upon her feet.







5. Staircase Soles

Model(s): Barbie
Published Date: May 28, 2008

Shot on the same day as Danielle's billiards set above, this is the first set I shot with Barbie and the first one I published. This fun loving blonde has such cute little feet and the personality to match. And since she was wearing a skirt, fans of upskirt shots loved the few panty flashes in the set. 


I really wish I had gotten in more sets with Barbie.







4. Tailgating

Model(s): Wendy & Nessa
Published Date: September 3, 2008

A fan of the Ravens, Wendy wanted to do a football themed set in 2008. She asked me if her friend Nessa could also be a part of it. I said sure and we came up with the idea to do a tailgating theme. 


We used the back of an SUV, grabbed some beers, and the girls showed off their lovely feet with all kinds of purple and black paraphernalia. This was also Nessa's only set, which makes her the site's only model not to be featured in a solo set.







3. Sweaty Brown Boots

Model(s): Cierra
Published Date: June 18, 2008

It wasn't too long after I shot the socks and shoes set with Cierra and Mindee that I met up with Cierra to do this solo set. I asked her if she had any boots and she told me she did. I asked her to wear them, without socks, as I was curious to see how sweaty her feet would be. 


Well, she didn't have the boots on for too long, but her feet came out drenched in sweat. In some photos they literally glisten and in one particular shot, you can see a little puddle of it between her toes. 

After this set I was also able to get a few photos in with Cierra's feet all over my nose and face. Those were to be used for an overhaul of the Wu's Feet Links Interviews section. The plan never came to be, sadly, until after Wu's passing earlier this year - six years later. 

I didn't use the images from the set we did together afterward, instead electing to create the Wu's Feet Links Interviews Blog instead. Since it isn't actually on Wu's Feet Links itself, I decided to keep with the overall look of Wu's Feet Links not to cause confusion.







2. Tickle Me Elmo & Toes

Model(s): Cierra & Kimmie
Published Date: November 19, 2008

Cierra shot a ton of photos in 2008, many of which took longer than a year to even publish. This set with Kimmie was done after the set that made #1 on this list below. It is also one of the funnest two girl sets I've ever shot. 


Cierra's son was big into Tickle Me Elmo, as were many kids in 2008. Since I always get requests for tickling shoots, it made perfect sense to do this theme once Kimmie arrived. She was coming over after Cierra and I did the cookie dough set. Needless to say, these two had a blast shooting this one and I had an amazing time shooting it. 

When the shoot was done, the clips saw even more fun ensue. There was a book on the shelf about tickling, so I had each girl read out loud from the book as the other tickled her feet. Comical!







1. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Model(s): Cierra
Published Date: February 20, 2008

As you can see, Cierra sure was a star in 2008. Four out of the 10 sets I picked featured her either solo or with another model. But of all the sets, this one was my favorite. 


Cierra fully admits to loving to stick her feet in food. She loves feeling it squish under her soles and between her toes. She has done countless food sets getting to the point where I told her she had to start saving some foods for other models. This cookie dough set, however, was one she did that is probably my favorite. That gooey cookie dough clung to her moist soles, since they sweat so much, and I couldn't help but scoop some off between photos and savor the taste. I'm a raw cookie dough fan anyhow, so having it off Cierra's feet might be the best thing ever! 

We ended up actually cooking the cookies for the second half of the set too. When Cierra's roommate at the time, Jessie, came home, she ate a couple, having no idea how we made them. Shh!


Honorable Mentions (7): Lady Steph - Pink Stockings, Kellie - Balloons, Kellie - Marshmallows, Keira - New Years, Cierra - Metal Fountain, Carmen - Bulldozer, Autumn - Thanksgiving Dinner

So what photo sets were your favorites from this year? I thank you for taking a look back with me at a little bit of this site's history. These 10 years online have flown by so quick!
