Soles of Silk - 2005's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

My first full year of shooting for Soles of Silk led to numerous new models. Most were my every day friends, and some happened to be foot models from other sites. Early on I established that Soles of Silk would be a mix of both, with my casual take on content. I've never been about shooting in studios, using backdrops, and the like. My idea has always been to portray my models, no matter how "professional" they are, in everyday settings. And above all else, I wanted my models to be having fun. That's always been my goal and still is today.

Now, onto 2005's Star Models*:



2. (tied) Lexi
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2005: 6

Didn't I say that Soles of Silk was a mix of friends and foot models from around the web? Well, at the time, they didn't come any more well known than Lexi from Lexi's Foot Fetish. She was overly popular, especially with fans on Wu's Feet Links. Needless to say, it was huge when I showed people the photos I had done with her.

When I reached out to Lexi to shoot, I wasn't sure what to expect. When she agreed, I was pumped! I drove over eight hours just to see her. We shot six sets in our only meeting. It should have actually been less as her friend, and fellow model on her site, Jenn, was also supposed to shoot. Jenn was a no show and Lexi did extra sets because she felt bad that I had drove all that way. She was a class act.

Lexi and I had talked about meeting up again, but as time went on, she stopped replying to emails. I have no idea where she is, or what she's up to today. I would have made that drive often to get in more photos with her, that's for sure!



2. (tied) Molly
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2005: 6

I got one of my "biggest" additions to Soles of Silk in 2005, in Molly. I say "biggest" because she quickly established herself with her size 11 feet as one of the site's most popular models - even in a year with Lexi, the twins (below), and Layla (bottom) all shooting for the first time.

Molly sure did love the camera. She had done some work of a more adult nature prior to shooting with me. She had no problem keeping it a little more tame and showing off her big feet though. In fact, I think she relished in the ability to have someone totally mesmerized by just her feet. Unless that was just her reaction to the photographer before her?



2. (tied) Kimmie
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2005: 6

When you have something great, it's even better when you have two of said thing. Well, that's what happened when the identical twin duo of Kimmie and Kellie (below) debuted on Soles of Silk. Both twins shot a lot and had a blast with whatever I asked of them. I couldn't ask for more willing models/friends.

The only thing that turned out not to be identical with the two was the fact that Kellie squeezed in one more set than her sister before the end of the year. Kimmie had to meet up with her then boyfriend, leaving Kellie and I to shoot an extra set, which is the one shown down below. Now, onto Kellie.



1. (tied) Kellie
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2005: 7

Most of the time I got to shoot Kimmie and Kellie, we did so together. There was no way I wasn't going to get in sets with identical twins as often as I could. Still, a few solo sets did come to be, which is how Kellie came away with just one more set than her sister in the year they debuted.

Both twins were massively over and would go on to become regular models for me in the years after. Whether it was Kimmie or Kellie, I couldn't pass up a chance to shoot with either of these two beauties. Plus, they really loved having their feet rubbed - even together! Nope, I'm not bragging! Okay, maybe I am.



1. (tied) Layla
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2005: 7

Talk about someone who arrived and made an everlasting impression on Soles of Silk! Layla and I had never met before. We exchanged messages on One Model Place, when we both had profiles on the site, and decided to work together. I knew right away, that first shoot, that I had a surefire hit on my hand. Her feet were perfection and she was beautiful. That first shoot would lead to others. From there, our friendship grew and she'd find her way in front of my camera quite often.

To this day, Layla remains as one of my site's most photographed models, falling just short of the 2K Club (2,000 photos). I thought she'd end up breaking that easily, but she moved away eventually.

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2006's Star Models.

* When I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models in 2015, I decided to list the three most photographed models of the year. When going back to do these blogs retroactively, it became apparent that there would be many ties. Due to this fact, you will often see more than three models featured.

Retroactive Star Model Leader Count (as of 2005)

This portion of the blog was added in November 2017 when I went back to do the Star Models of years past (2004-14). I wanted to see which models made the most appearances throughout the years and who actually shot the most, well, the most? Wanting to know this information, I decided to share the results at the conclusion of these blogs as they progress. I will include this on each and every installment moving forward.

Soles of Silk - 2004's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

This first year for Soles of Silk was one where I did all of the sets over a few months as I prepared to launch the site by 2015. I actually got done ahead of schedule and the site launched on Dec. 29, 2004. Soles of Silk launched with eight models, half of which find themselves on the 2004 Star Models listing. Three of them shot four total sets, with one going above and beyond that first year, with seven.

Now, onto 2004's Star Models*:



2. (tied) Lauryn
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2004: 4

Ah, Lauryn! I loved shooting Lauryn. She is the sister of a friend and former coworker of mine. She has always been so down to earth and fun loving. When I approached Madison about shooting for my brand new site, she mentioned asking Lauryn to do it as well. I was totally game knowing how fun she was to be around.

When Lauryn shot, she was every bit as energetic as I knew her to be. She was, however, overly worried that people would not like her feet. She claimed she has "dancer" feet and wasn't sure what people would think of her long toes. I assured her that there are many fans who would love them. Well, that turned out to be an understatement as Lauryn was perhaps my most popular model at launch. People loved her waffles and syrup set (above) as well as some schoolgirl sets done with Madison.



2. (tied) Lisa Tyler
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2004: 4

Intimidated! That was how I felt as soon as Lisa Tyler agreed to shoot for me. Until that point in time, I had no site to show. I only had photos from my old site, The 10 Little Piggies to reference. Still, Lisa Tyler agreed to shoot for me.

I had reached out to Lisa after seeing her Wu's Feet Links feature set, "Creamy Soles." I wasn't sure if she'd shoot for me since she was running her own site at the time, Forever Feet. Luckily for me, she did.

I met Lisa down in Virginia while she was meeting with other photographers. We made plans to do some sets one morning/afternoon and I even took off work to make it happen. I told her up front that she was so much more experienced than I was at that point and I was intimidated. She assured me I'd be fine and she went to town striking poses. I didn't have to do much of anything other than take the photos. Lisa was in control and I came away with some great material.

Having Lisa on my site for it's launch really helped me with some creditability. Some people remembered my older site, but when it came to landing models who shot for other sites, she became a great reference. I showed off some of her photos to land other models, like Sue Lovely below.



2. (tied) Sue Lovely
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2004: 4

I met Sue Lovely on a modeling portfolio page after I had shot Lisa Tyler. I have always had a massive fondness for Asian women and I was ecstatic when Sue Lovely agreed to shoot.

I spent an afternoon/evening with Sue downtown. We did a couple of sets outdoors and a couple indoors. We did everything from socks to stockings, to dusty feet to peanut butter and jelly. Sue's photos were a big hit, but sadly that shoot was the only one we ever got to do. She stopped modeling, as far as I know. Too bad, as I would have loved to have seen her name pop up as a Star Model lots of time. Shooting her little Asian feet will always be a great memory from my site's earliest days.



1. Madison
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2004: 7

This woman... If it wasn't for Madison in the site's early years, I don't know if I would have been as successful as I was. Madison was there for every twist, turn, and crazy idea I had. She loved being in front of my camera and showing off her long, narrow feet. She loved more than that too, but I'll get to that in a minute.

When I began tallying up all the Star Models from 2004-14, I figured Madison would run away with things for a few years, but that didn't turn out to be the case. This first year she topped the list and although it isn't her only appearance as a Star Model, it shocked me that it was the only time she placed first. I felt like we shot all the time during the site's start up. Guess others did just a bit more.

Nevertheless, Madison shot seven sets in 2004, a few with Lauryn, up above, and the rest by herself. She brought a fun loving attitude with each and every set. Hell, we probably would have done more than seven sets had we not sat around bullshitting like friends do. Can you blame me, though? Most of the time that happened, I was busy rubbing her skinny feet. I spent a lot of time doing that early on and sure do miss it! She loved it to, so there were no complaints from her!

Dream Duos #5 - Kaycee & Ashlyn

Welcome to the fifth installment in an ongoing blog series here on the Soles of Silk Blog. In this series I take a look at two models on the site who I'd love to see shoot together someday.




Kaycee (left)
Shoe Size: 7.5
Debut: July 9, 2014
# of Photos on Site: 906
Other Models Shot WithReagan

Ashlyn (right)
Shoe Size: 5
Debut: August 28, 2013
# of Photos on Site: 371
Other Models Shot With: none

Here is a team up that would just be so awesome, if I were able to make it happen - hence, a dream duo! Kaycee and Ashlyn are both models who I'd have to say have their own styles about them. Whether it's outfits, make up, or things that they enjoy, I can honestly say that neither are you're stereotypical female. That's why I love them both. Well, that and they have adorable feet and are both sweethearts. It makes them amazing to have in front of my camera. All of their shoots thus far have been memorable for different reasons.

Kaycee has already shot with one model, her good friend, Reagan. It was Kaycee who got Reagan to shoot in the first place, so it was only natural for them both to want to shoot together. As for Ashlyn, she has yet to shoot with anyone else. I'd love for her first team up to be with Kaycee!

Generally Kaycee is one of my most photographed models, even earning herself an appearance on the "2015's Star Models" blog. This year we haven't been able to shoot anything, but that's very atypical. We've even been talking about squeezing in a few sets before it gets too cold here though. Either that, or I'll have to find an indoor location and we'll make something happen.

When it comes to Ashlyn, however, it's been quite a while since we last shot. We still talk about it and she assures me she'd love to do some more photos. With all that's going on in both of our lives, we just don't get to schedule anything. It's a shame too because people have loved every one of Ashlyn's sets when published. The same is true about Kaycee as well. Imagine combining them into one set? I can!

One thing I've always said about multi-model shoots is that they're generally best when I can shoot two models who are friends with one another already. Although that is not the case with these two (as far as I know), I still think things would come out really well. The three of us have a very carefree attitude towards life, so I'm sure any set we planned would be nothing but fun.

So what do you think? What kind of shoots would you love to see these two in together? I, for one, think something with some stockings would be cool. Maybe even something with Converse shoes? Heck, maybe it would be best to tell these two to come up with a theme together and I'll shoot whatever they decide upon. They're both creative, so I'm certain it would be great.

 


Be on the lookout for future Dream Duo entries. Which two models would you most like to see photographed together? Don't hesitate to let me know.

Models I Miss - Lauryn


"Do I enjoy having my feet massaged? 'Enjoy' doesn't even begin explain!"
- Lauryn: Introductory Interview

Welcome to the fifth entry into the Models I Miss series here on the Soles of Silk Blog. This blog series focuses on some of my former models who have either stopped modeling, moved, or are just someone I've lost touch with. In this installment, I focus on the ever so energetic, Lauryn.

Back in 2004 I decided I wanted to open up another foot fetish site. In the years prior I had run a couple of different foot fetish sites, both on Yahoo! Geocities and then a short-lived spin-off, The 10 Little Piggies. This time, however, I was going to make a membership-based site so it would sustain itself. That was the reason for The 10 Little Piggies failure. So I began to ask around and see if any of my former models and/or friends wanted to help me out.

I had worked with Lauryn for a short while and was friends with her brother. A mutual friend, and her brother's then girlfriend, Madison, reached out to her to see if she'd be interested in shooting for the site. Madison had already agreed, so she was going to see if she could bring her on board too.

Lauryn said she'd do it, wasn't sure if people would like her long toes and "dancer feet." I had seen her feet once before and knew she had long toes, but I sure didn't mind when I rubbed them that same evening for quite some time. So if she was willing, so was I!

Lauryn came by to shoot her first ever photos with Madison one evening and right away I was in love with her energy! She was a ball of fun and had a blast shooting whatever I asked of her. Whether it was some schoolgirl themed sets with Madison, or pouring syrup all over her feet as she squished some waffles, Lauryn owned the set.

I was quick to schedule another shoot with these two. The second shoot took place in a hotel suite that I rented out. Both Lauryn and Madison did some solo sets, but it was a pillow fight set the two did that just left me in awe. I knew people would love the set and I was right on the money with that prediction. This set, as well as those schoolgirl sets, showed me the value in shooting models who are already friends. The chemistry was there from the start and it was all captured on camera.

The shoot in the hotel suite were some of the last ones I shot prior to launching Soles of Silk. When it came time to launch the site during the final week of 2004, Lauryn's worries about her feet were quickly erased. She was a hit! A massive one! Lauryn was probably my most popular models at launch and remained so for some time.

Sadly, I didn't get to shoot Lauryn again for three years. We lost touch and when we did get to chat, she was often busy. When we did get to shoot, however, I remembered why I loved having her in front of the camera in 2004. Lauryn still had that energy and looked great in the two sets we did that evening. The image you see above came from the first set we did that day, and the second ended up being a yoga themed set that was totally her idea. We finished up that day getting a bite to eat and me treating her to a nice, long foot rub. That was the last time we shot and the last time I saw her size 8.5 feet.

Over the years I've reached out to Lauryn about shooting again. At first she seemed receptive to the idea, but family life has come and I think as much as she wants to, she has reasons for not doing it. I respect that and have left the door open for her. She's still very gorgeous and I bet her fun loving attitude hasn't left her. I know she'd still own any set she shot should if she came back. I'll just keep my fingers crossed.
