1,000 Toes In: The First 100 Models of Soles of Silk, Pt. 6 (Kelsey - Lela Beryl)

Welcome to the sixth installment of the "1,000 Toes In" blog series. This series celebrates on each of the first 100 models to appear on Soles of Silk. All of these models deserve all the praise I will throw their way in these 10 blog entries. Please be sure to check out all the previous entries, as well as any newer ones, once they're published. Now, onto the next 10 models on Soles of Silk:

Kelsey (size 6.5)
Model #: 27
Debut Date: February 1, 2006
Published Sets: 26
Published Photos: 1,730
K Clubs: 1K (February 2014)
Star Model Accolades: 2016 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2006 (6th), 2007 (10th), 2009 (8th), 2015 (10th), 2017 (6th, 7th)
Other Notables: Shot her first sets one day after her 18th birthday.

Like many of the models on Soles of Silk, Kelsey is a good friend of mine and someone I've worked with for years. I consider her one of my better friends and is someone I've always gotten along with. She, on the other hand, said she used to hate me when she first got hired because I'd make her actually have to work. That was back before she was 18, however - back when her grandmother and mother, who also worked with us at the time, babied her and let coast through the day. Yeah, I was the asshole that made her have to work. 

Eventually, Kelsey would come around to realize I wasn't such a bad guy and with her 18th birthday approaching, a few of the other girls who were shooting for me at work, most notably Kimmie, Kellie, and Abby, asked her if she was going to shoot. I told all of them she was more than welcome to do so once her birthday came. Well, it came and barely went. Kelsey thought about shooting on her birthday itself, but her grandparents took her out that day. Instead, Kelsey shot the day after. I welcomed her to the site with a birthday cake... which she had to smash with her barely legal feet!

It's become a running gag between Kelsey and I that I always make her step in stuff, or pick the hottest days to shoot. She's kind of right, but in all honesty, Kelsey has done an awesome job over the years and has been in some memorable sets. We've also had great times going out on adventures, or even just squeezing in a set or two when we had a little bit of time. I've always loved hanging out with her and those super soft feet of hers. It's been a little too long since we last shot, so I think it's about time for her to get in some more. I also have some sets of hers that I haven't yet published that would be good to get on the site here in the coming weeks. Be on the lookout for something of hers sooner, rather than later.

Kerri Taylor (size 8)
Model #: 29
Debut Date: May 3, 2006
Published Sets: 3 
Published Photos: 143
Other Notables: Has appeared on numerous other foot fetish sites.

I remember when Layla mentioned that she had booked Kerri Taylor to come down to Maryland and shoot for her site. She contacted me to see if I was also interested in having her on Soles of Silk. If so, she said she'd shoot for me while Kerri was with her husband, and then I'd shoot with Kerri while her and husband did some sets. I said sure, but I also wanted to get in at least one set with the both of them together. Layla said sure and that's exactly how things went down.

That was my only interaction with Kerri. We only shot the one day and she looks like she's still out there shooting. I see her stuff popping up on social media from time to time. She's certainly been out there doing her thing for a long time now. More power to her and hope she's doing well.

Kim T. (size 6.5)
Model #: 60
Debut Date: June 23, 2010
Published Sets: 3
Published Photos: 158
Wu's Feet Links Features: Toes 'n Heels (January 2007) *Non-Soles of Silk Feature
Other Notables: Former model for The 10 Little Piggies. Used to run her own foot fetish Yahoo! group. Has appeared on other foot fetish sites. 
Published photos in the Home Photos section of Leg Show magazine numerous times.

I met Kim T., and her then husband, Chris, a good seven years prior to Soles of Silk's launch. I found Kim's pictures in an issue of Leg Show Magazine and immediately fell in love with her plump toes and thick soles. I saw the couple also lived in Maryland, so I wrote to the both of them. I was dating Abby at the time and we all agreed to meet. Needless to say, it was a fun time for all. Chris shot Abby and I shot Kim. Then we both shot photos of the two together and it was simply amazing.

Even after Abby and I broke up, I remained friends with Kim and Chris. I went over their house a few times, which usually resulted in Kim's feet being pampered by yours truly. I also introduced Andrea to the both of them and we did something similar to the day that Abby and I did years prior.

A few years would go by and I got into a long term relationship. I noticed that Kim and Chris didn't seem to update their old Yahoo! groups like they once did. A few more years would go by and that's when I got a text out of the blue from Kim. She texted me by accident, trying to get in touch with a friend of hers named Patty. Talk about a lucky mistake!

Kim told me that she was now divorced, but since she had me on the phone, she asked if I was still shooting. I told her all about Soles of Silk and sent her links. She immediately wanted to shoot again. We made plans and got in three sets. Naturally I had to make up for some lost time and I massaged her feet for about two hours that day. They were as soft as I remembered.

Less than a year later, Kim told me she was seeing someone up in New York and didn't think she'd be shooting anymore. That's when she began not replying to me, so I don't know what's going on with her these days. I saw a couple social media accounts pop up belonging to her, but none ever stick around long. I don't know if she's still up in New York or not. I'd love to see her return for a second time, but who knows? Maybe she'll accidentally text me again one day...

Kimmie (size 5)
Model #: 13
Debut Date: March 30, 2005
Published Sets: 22
Published Photos: 1,220
K Clubs: 1K (May 2010)
Wu's Feet Links FeaturesFootball Fun (February 2007)
Star Model Accolades: 2005 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2005 (2nd), 2006 (1st), 2008 (2nd), 2009 (1st)
Other Notables: Kellie's twin sister. Appeared in first multi-model Wu's Feet Links feature set with Kellie. Appeared in the site's first ever, 4-model set with Kellie, Carmen, and Cheri. Appeared in the site's first ever, 3-model set with Kellie and Keira.

In the last installment of this blog series you met Kellie, Kimmie's sister. I worked with both of these gorgeous identical twins and knew they'd be a massive hit on Soles of Silk. I was friendly with both and neither of them could wait to kick off their shoes and show their little size 5 feet to me when I approached them about being a part of the model roster.

While I ultimately did shoot more photos with Kellie, Kimmie and I always had an amazing time whenever we did get the chance to shoot. Her sets were always great! Just look at all her Top 10 appearances above. Four appearances with two first place finishes and two second. She made them count!

Like Kellie, Kimmie hasn't shot in years. While Kimmie never told me that she couldn't shoot due to her relationship, I just took it as the case when she no longer replied to my requests. I wish Kimmie well and should she ever want to return, even if it's without her sister, she'd be most welcome.

Krystie (size 6.5)
Model #: 37
Debut Date: May 21, 2007
Published Sets: 2
Published Photos: 112
Other Notables: Former model for The 10 Little Piggies.

I went to college with Krystie back when I was running my old free site, The 10 Little Piggies. Back then I'd go for broke and ask classmates if they'd be interested in shooting for me. I rarely got turned down, surprisingly, and Krystie may have been the most ecstatic about being asked.

"I always told my mom I have pretty feet," Krystie told me the day I asked her. "I can't wait to go home and tell her about this."

Ultimately, Krystie and I became friends and would hang out from time to time. We got along quite well, but after we graduated, we weren't in touch as much as we used to be. I'd see her here and there and then I found out she was getting married. Much to my surprise, she told that her fiance wanted her to shoot for Soles of Silk. She had never shot for this site, only for my older one from the late 1990's. I told her I'd love to have her make a return.

Krystie's return, ironically, came after her and her fiance had split up. She was single again, but had started talking to someone else. We met up for the first time in a while and got in a couple of sets. It was great seeing Krystie again and spending time at her little feet. Surely enough, I rubbed her feet like I had done many times in the past after wrapping up our shoot. I was happy to have her back, but at the time, neither of us knew that it would be very short lived.

Krystie's new boyfriend, who she began seeing shortly after our first shoot for Soles of Silk, wasn't too keen on the idea of her continuing. Once they got serious, she told me how he felt and I told her I understood. At least we got in two sets, but I would have loved to have had her around to do so many more.

Lady Steph (size 7)
Model #: 50
Debut Date: December 17, 2008
Published Sets: 9
Published Photos: 408
Wu's Feet Links Features: Sexy Blue Toes (August 2008) *Non-Soles of Silk feature
Wu's Feet Links Interviews: July 2014
Other Notables: Runs her own Clips4Sale store, Lady Steph's Fetish Clips. Has appeared on other foot fetish sites.

A few years after I began Soles of Silk, a former college classmate contacted me to tell me that he loved my work, especially that of Wendy, a mutual classmate of ours when we were in school together. I never knew he had a foot fetish as he hid it from everyone. Me on the other hand, everyone knew. I didn't care.

Anyhow, this classmate ultimately invited me to attend some private foot fetish parties he would often go to. I had never been to any in my life, so I said, "Why not?" It was at these parties that I met a few models, including Lady Steph.

Lady Steph and I decided to meet up and shoot, which resulted in some really fun, really brightly colored sets. We'd go on to shoot again a few years later, but that is the last time that we have shot at this point in time.

Lady Steph was also very instrumental in helping kick start the Wu's Feet Links Interviews Blog, being my very first interview. Wu, before he passed, had mentioned interviewing her when he asked me to think about taking over the interviews portion of his site. The interviews used to be fan submitted questions, but that resulted in dozens of the same questions being asked over and over. He wanted to clean things up, but passed away before getting things underway. Keeping Wu's request in mind, when I decided to try to keep Wu's going with the help of BHE (Wu's Feet Links and Soles of Silk's hosting company), I made sure to go with Lady Steph as my very first interview. I knew he would have liked that.

I see that Lady Steph is out there, meeting up with some other producers whose work I enjoy. She truly enjoys the fetish and it looks like she's still into the party scene as well. Be sure to check out her clips store to see more of her!

Lauryn (size 8.5)
Model #: 8
Debut Date: December 29, 2004
Published Sets: 9
Published Photos: 464
Star Model Accolades: 2004 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2004 (2nd), 2005 (1st, 7th), 2006 (5th)
Other Notables: Site debut model. Appeared in site's first ever, 2-model set with Madison.

This spunky chick worked with me for a brief time, but I was also friends with her older brother. That older brother used to date Madison for years, so it was only natural that Madison would go on to ask Lauryn to shoot for Soles of Silk too when I asked her back in 2004. I didn't have a site to show Lauryn, but Madison had shot for The 10 Little Piggies a number of years before. She knew the deal, but Lauryn was brand new to everything. She embraced it though and was one of the site's most popular models upon launch.

For the first couple years of the site's existence, Lauryn would come along and shoot with Madison a handful of times. She got in a few sets with her and did some solo ones as well. Lauryn was also in a four model set with Madison, Molly (her sister-in-law), and Bethany that was shot for the site's 2006 Christmas update. Still, I always wished we had gotten together to shoot a little bit more.

People always loved Lauryn's fun loving attitude and smile. She, herself, was so worried that no one was going to like her long toes. That turned out to be the total opposite of most people's reaction, though. They loved them and loved her. I sure do miss Lauryn and am thankful for the sets that she did do. She was a big part of this site's launch and first few years. I'd love to have her back one day. That would be one of the most memorable returns, without a doubt!

Layla (size 7)
Model #: 20
Debut Date: June 22, 2005
Published Sets: 31
Published Photos: 1,942
K Clubs: 1K (January 2009)
Wu's Feet Links Features: Pretty Size 7's (November 2013) *Non-Soles of Silk feature
Star Model Accolades: 2005 (1st), 2007 (2nd), 2009 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2007 (5th), 2008 (7th), 2009 (4th, 6th, 9th)
Other Notables: Jaylee Austin's older sister. Used to run her own site. Has appeared on other foot fetish sites.

Oh Layla! This beautiful vixen was one of a handful of models I met on One Model Place years ago. I ran that account, looking for area models, shortly after I launched Soles of Silk. When Layla reached out to me, I was instantly wanting to get her on the site.

Her first shoot we did downtown. We got along great and I also met her husband. For the next couple of years, I'd meet up at their place and shoot countless photos. Layla would also introduce to her sister, Jaylee Austin, and get her to shoot too. She also got her friend, Chrystine, to shoot as well as secure Kerri Taylor for both her site and Soles of Silk.

I could always count on Layla for some amazing photos. She enjoyed being in front of the camera and it showed. She's been in some of my favorite sets, as seen above. I only wish she did not move out of state because she missed being a part of the 2K Club by only 58 photos. She's been sitting there, so close, for years now. Oh well, I wish her well with everything and hope life is treating her and her family well. If I can ever pull off a reunion with Layla, you best bet I'm going to jump on it.

Leah (size 6)
Model #: 95
Debut Date: April 19, 2017
Published Sets: 3
Published Photos: 233
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2017 (9th)
Other Notables: One of her fans got a photo of her smelling her well-worn converse tattooed on himself.

Last year Alice introduced me to her friend, Leah. She told me Leah was a very open-minded person who really wanted to shoot for me. When I met Leah, I also found out that Leah absolutely loves having her feet pampered and pleased. She is one of those girls who a foot guy dreams about. I can totally see her coming home from work and walking right over to a guy she's with and making him pull her shoes off and spending the next few hours at her feet. I'm not kidding.

My first shoot with Leah resulted in two sets, both with Alice. I was able to secure her one other time last year for some solo sets. During that day Leah shot the set above, as well as the one in which the photo came from that her fan got tattooed on himself. We had a blast and I knew this girl was here to stay. I figured Leah would shot a few more times last year, but that wasn't the case. Our next shoot didn't come until this year, a couple of weeks ago, to be exact (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Leah").

Although our day didn't go as planned recently, it was still fun spending time with Leah and her little size 6 feet. We got in just one set, but are looking at shooting again this Monday, if the rain doesn't wash us out. I told her I'd still like to get together, however, and if worse comes to worse, I can give her foot rubs in the rain. Now that I think about it, is that actually "worse?"

Lela Beryl (size 6.5)
Model #: 80
Debut Date: March 21, 2014
Published Sets: 5 
Published Photos: 317
Star Model Accolades: 2014 (3rd)
Other Notables: Has appeared on other foot fetish sites.

Thanks to social media I have been able to converse with models from all over the United States. There are a bunch I'd love to shoot with, but distance isn't in our favor. From time to time, however, a model will contact me and let me know that she's going to be coming to my area. That's what happened with Lela Beryl.

Lela was coming up north from her Florida home to shoot with a few photographers. She was friends with Rachel DD, who shot for me the year before, so she already knew I was legit. I was already a fan of Lela's work, and even featured her in "Would Love to Shoot #9 - Bailey Paige, Emily Austin, & Lela Beryl," the ninth installment of a blog series I write talking about models from around the web. She's one of only a handful I've actually gotten to work with and I'm so glad we did.

In the lone meeting I had with Lela, I found her to be so fun and simple to work with. She was nerdy in many of the same ways that I am and we just hit it off. She looked great on camera and I could not get over just how soft her soles were. I've shot a lot of feet in my life, but Lela's are easily among the softest I've come across.

I noticed last year that Lela's Twitter account, @LelaBeryl, ceased updating. I don't know if she's stopped modeling, or just let her social media lapse. I hope she's doing well and is someone I'd most definitely be up for shooting again, should that chance arise.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the 10 models above. Be on the lookout for Part 6 of this 10 part blog series in the days to come.

Wu's Feature History - Jasey Rae (2018)

Back in 2013 I began a blog series that reviewed all of the Wu's Feet Links feature model galleries up to that point. Due to the time and dedication that I put into all of these features, I decided it would be a good idea to add a new entry to the series each and every time one of my models is featured. Up for 2018 is none other than fun loving, and ever so teasing, Jasey Rae

Jasey Rae's pudgy toes were so moist on this hot, muggy day.

2018 Feature: Captain of the All-Tease Cheer Squad
Model: Jasey Rae
Shoe Size: 7.5
Set URL: (138 images)

Earlier this year I asked one of my models about being in the site's next Wu's Feet Links feature down the road in July. She said yes, but over the last few months, communication with her has become hit or miss. This isn't the first time I have been left scrambling to find a replacement model for a feature set though. Nope. Ryan's debut set, and the July 2011 feature, "Sexiest Catch," only happened the way it did because one model stopped shooting and the second did not communicate with me enough to lock in a shoot date. As you all know, things worked out quite well with that feature. 

I firmly believe that this feature, "Captain of the All-Tease Cheer Squad," starring Jasey Rae, will be remembered in much the same way. We waited until just a few days before the site's publish date to shoot, but man, did it ever turn out great! As the popular quote from Robert Burns poem, "To a Mouse," goes, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." In this case, it looks like it was for the best!

It was about two weeks ago now that I asked Jasey, along with one other model of mine, about the possibility of doing this set. The cheerleader outfit was already in my possession and I needed someone to shoot who wears a size small. I didn't want to have to scramble to order another outfit and not have it show up on time. After talking with both models, it was clear just how much Jasey wanted to do this set. I'm pretty sure she answered with a "Hell yeah," after I explained the situation to her.

In the grand scheme of things, I was so happy that Jasey ultimately wound up being the one to do this set. Not to put the originally planned model, or the other I had also asked to shoot this set down, but Jasey has been shooting for me for several years now and even joined the 1K Club earlier this year (see blog: "1K Club - Jasey Rae's Footography"). I love having my dedicated models be rewarded for the awesome work they do, so after she agreed to shoot this for me, I really began to feel much happier about the situation. The only thing we needed now was a date to shoot.

Like everything else with this set, the shoot itself ultimately came down to the last minute, getting it done only days before it needed to be finished. When we both saw that we had a few hours of mutual break time between our shifts on both Wednesday and Thursday this week, we planned to shoot on both day. I wanted a back up date just in case the first day didn't work out... and we almost needed it too!

We arrived at the football field around 1:30 p.m. This was the high school that Mindee and I had just used the week before (see blog: "Friday's Shoot - Mindee"). I loved the bright turf and knew it would also be perfect to Jasey's upcoming set. Since Mindee had shot her set right on the number one, at the 10-yard line, to symbolize herself as Soles of Silk's number one model, that gave us the rest of the field to Jase's. I already had a plan in mind, however. Since the color blue was to play a prominent role in this set, I wanted to use the 50-yard line for Jasey's set. Featured at mid-field was large blue logo that I knew would make for the perfect compliment for what I had in mind.

As Jasey and I made the long walk from my car to the field, we noticed several teenage boys up in the stands. Jasey hadn't slipped on her cheerleader outfit yet, and was a little hesitant to do so with them nearby. We began walking across the field, thinking that maybe we could just move as far away from them as possible. That would mean skipping out on using the logo at mid-field, however, which I wasn't happy about. A few minutes into our arrival though, the boys began making cat calls. This ultimately made us decide to head back to the car. It sounded like one of them yelled, "Get that pussy," a few times. Had we set up shop and started shooting, I think it would have only encouraged them even more. Back to my car we went.

While sitting in my car we began tossing around ideas to shoot something else. There were some other possible spots nearby, but the two sets I had planned on shooting this day both involved using the field and then stands where the boys were hanging out. I was frustrated, but we decided to wait and see if these asshole kids would eventually leave. About 10 minutes later, we got our wish! They got on their bikes and rode off. Jasey slipped into her cheerleader outfit, while in the car this time, and we headed back down to the field.

Having the field to ourselves, we plopped right down on the large blue logo as I had intended. That logo, the vivid blue sky, and the countless blue balls we brought as props, all framed Jasey and her pink cheerleader outfit and workout mat perfectly. I love when I can incorporate lots of bright colors into my sets and this one has it in spades.

Since it was so hot on the day that we shot this set, Jasey's little feet naturally got sweaty inside her white shoes and ankle socks. That was exactly what I had hoped for too. I'm sure those ultra plump piggies of hers helped get things nice and moist inside that footwear too. Aren't those toes of her just adorable? I'm a sole guy through and through, but Jasey's toes have always mesmerized me. She knows it too and has gone out of her way to tease me over the years with them. Whether it was sneaked camera photos when her ex-boyfriend wasn't looking, or spreading and wiggling them only inches away from my face and camera, but not letting me touch them, she's been there and done that! So this set, especially with those added blue balls, was perfect for her. It's another reason I was so glad that she jumped on the chance to shoot it. It was just meant to be!

I can't wait to read what you all think about this set. With this being the 13th feature set to appear on Wu's, representing Soles of Silk, I have to say it sure ranks up there among my personal favorites. Jasey is certainly making her presence felt this year and I'm glad that she has yet another milestone to add to her ever-growing resume here on Soles of Silk.

I bet you wish you were the one sniffing Jasey Rae's sweaty sneakers instead.

This concludes the Wu's Feet Links Feature History series for now. I wonder which models will represent Soles of Silk in the future? Do you have any suggestions? I'd love to hear them.

1,000 Toes In: The First 100 Models of Soles of Silk, Pt. 5 (Jasey Rae - Kellie)

Welcome to the fifth installment of the "1,000 Toes In" blog series. This series celebrates on each of the first 100 models to appear on Soles of Silk. All of these models deserve all the praise I will throw their way in these 10 blog entries. Please be sure to check out all the previous entries, as well as any newer ones, once they're published. Now, onto the next 10 models on Soles of Silk:

Jasey Rae (size 7.5)
Model #: 78
Debut Date: October 30, 2013
Published Sets: 16
Published Photos: 1,171
K Clubs: 1K (April 2018)

Wu's Feet Links Features: Captain of the All-Tease Cheer Squad (July 2018)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2015 (8th), 2016 (6th), 2017 (7th)

When Jasey Rae was hired at work we became friends right away. When she turned 18, I had hoped that she would shoot for the site, especially since she was friends with a few other coworkers who were doing it at the time. That was not to be, however, as the guy she was dating didn't like the idea. "Oh well, that's happened before and I'm sure it will happen again," I figured.

A few months later, my luck with Jasey changed. She was now single and came right to me, wanting to shoot. She knew I loved her feet, especially her plump piggies. You see, while she was dating the guy who didn't want her to shoot, she'd always send me photos of her feet to tease me. I remember the one time she did a photo of her feet on the dashboard of his car, with him driving, and sent it to me. He didn't even know she took it. That was great!

Jasey ended up shooting a few sets in late October and I was so glad to have her. Since it was late in the year though, I didn't really pursue any more sets, instead I decided to wait until spring arrived. By that time, however, Jasey had gotten back with the boyfriend and wasn't able to shoot again.

Fast forward two years and Jasey and that boyfriend broke up for good. Ever since then, Jasey has been a regular model for me and I couldn't be any happier. Jasey is always so excited to get in new photos that she tries to make it a point to be my first model to shoot each calendar year. She was the first model to shoot for me in both 2016 and 2017. This year, however, Maya beat her to the punch, when we shot in at her place in early February in order to debut her in time for Valentine's Day (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Maya").

Most recently, Jasey Rae jumped in to rescue me with shooting the July 2018 Wu's Feet Links feature set. I've written extensively about how that shoot went, so be sure to read the blog "Wu's Feature History - Jasey Rae (2018)" once it is published.

Jaylee Austin (size 6.5)
Model #: 51
Debut Date: March 18, 2009
Published Sets: 6 
Published Photos: 382
Star Model Accolades: 2009 (1st)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2009 (10th)
Other Notables: Layla's younger sister.

When Layla told me her younger sister, Jaylee Austin, wanted to shoot, I was pumped and ready to add another sister duo to my site. For the first time since Kimmie and Kellie, I'd have a pair of sisters in a shoot together, and knowing Layla, she'd make sure we'd have some fun times with my camera capturing every moment.

When I told Layla my idea about having her sister do a cheesecake smashing set, she loved it. That's when we came up with the idea to make her do it for her very first set. Yup! The very first one. We literally fed her to the wolves, so to speak.

Every set I ended up shooting with Jaylee came in 2009. When I was retroactively writing the Star Model blogs from the years prior to the original blog I did in 2015, I was shocked that Jaylee came in the top spot for 2009. With so many models, including her sister and Cierra, shooting on a regular basis back then, I had totally forgot that Jaylee accumulated all her sets in that one year. She actually only beat the two aforementioned models by one set each, but hey, that still counts!

I really wish I had gotten the chance to shoot with Jaylee more. She was a very pretty and fun person. Her sets were always a hit whenever I published them to the site too. What I wouldn't give for a Jaylee and Layla reunion set!

Jessie (size 9)
Model #: 46
Debut Date: January 30, 2008
Published Sets: 5
Published Photos: 263

Back when I was shooting Cierra in 2008 she was living with a roommate. That roommate was Jessie. She came home and saw Cierra shooting and thought it looked fun. Before I knew it, she was hitting me up, asking if she could shoot too. I was looking forward to it, especially because she has size 9 feet and I figured I'd be able to shoot with Cierra too.

On the day Jessie did her first photos, Cierra began the day, shooting two sets. When Jessie came home, I got in her first set on the couch. We kept it simple, but then I got my wish and Cierra and Jessie teamed up to smash some donut holes. All in all, a good day!

I didn't shoot with Jessie again for four years. Cierra had moved out by that time and I wasn't in touch with Jessie all to often, except from time to time on social media. Then, out of nowhere, she hit me up. Jessie said she wanted to shoot again, if I would have her. I said sure and we went out for a day and got in three more sets.

I still see Jessie from time to time, but we haven't really talked about shooting again. I don't know what she's up to, or if she'd even be interested in a second return to the site.

Star Model Accolades: 2008 (2nd), 2010 (2nd)

Other Notables: Runs her own Clips4Sale stores, Jordana-Rama Fetish Clips, Jordana's Spellbound Beauties, and Jordana's Shame Shack. Has appeared on other foot fetish sites.

If I remember correctly, Jordana and I met through the website, One Model Place. I used to have an account there and was able to meet a few models through it, before I ultimately closed the account.

At the time, I had seen Jordana, and her adorable size 7 feet, on a few other foot fetish sites as well. I knew she would fit right in on Soles of Silk. I've always loved having a mix of my own friends/coworkers and established models from the web on the site. It's something I've been doing from the very beginning, when Lisa Tyler, most notably, was part of the site's debut.

Over the years I met up with Jordana a handful of times. Each and every time we'd do a bunch of sets and they'd always be great. We got along well and we'd always end the shoot with some of the longest foot rubs I've given anyone. Literally, there were several times that she fell asleep to me rubbing her feet. I'd always keep rubbing, sometimes for a good hour after she nodded off. I let myself out of her hotel room a couple of times and even left her little thank you notes for letting me rub her feet.

It's been seven years now since my last shoot with Jordana. It looks like she's really focused running her own clips stores. We haven't really talked since our last shoot either. I don't know if she's even interested in shooting for anyone else these days.

Kat Noir (size 8)
Model #: 15
Debut Date: April 27, 2005
Published Sets: 7
Published Photos: 406
Other Notables: Used to run her own adult based site, Kat Noir. Has appeared on other adult based sites.

Kat Noir was just someone that I had to get on Soles of Silk. So many people love women in the cougar/MILF age range, so when I saw that she was based out of Maryland as well, I hit her up. Right away I saw how down to earth she was. She was totally up for shooting and we went ahead and made some plans.

Our first meet up came at a park where we did some outdoor sets. We hit it off quite nicely and she said she'd love to do more one day. With her focusing and traveling so much for her own site at the time, it would two years before we'd meet again to shoot. We hung out a few other times in the middle though, but not to shoot for Soles of Silk.

The second time we shot took place in downtown Baltimore. We did several more sets, which were much more risque than the originals. I loved how all three of them came out and really hoped that we'd find time to meet up again soon. That wouldn't be the case, however.

A couple of years after our last shoot, Kat closed down her site and I lost a bunch of my email contacts when a computer of mine failed. I had no way to reach out to her, which sucked because I wanted to see if she would still be interested in shooting for me, even with her own site closed. 

I don't know what Kat is up to these days, but I hope she and her family are doing well. I really appreciated meeting up with her and shooting all the great sets we got to do. She and her husband were very kind people.

Katie (size 9)
Model #: 61
Debut Date: July 21, 2010
Published Sets: 1

This former coworker and friend of mine was yet another one of the girls I worked with who was friends with models I had shot and wanted to do it before she was 18. I told her no, not until, obviously. When her birthday came, however, her boyfriend told her he didn't want her doing it. So yeah, it was all for null anyhow.

Less than a week later, Katie reached out to me to tell me that she just broke up with her boyfriend and she wants to shoot. I asked her if she was sure. I figured she might be doing this to get back at him in some fashion, but she assured me she wanted to do this before he had ever said no. That was indeed true, so we made plans and went out to a miniature golf course to shoot. I thought it would be fun and we'd get in some neat shots too. I only wished we had shot more that day!

Just like a few other times over the years, Katie ended up getting back with the boyfriend who didn't want her shooting. My one shoot of her would be all that I'd get. When they broke up again, she moved out of state and we really haven't talked too much since then. It's a shame because I loved Katie's size 9 feet, as did many of you. She didn't like them much, but I think she learned they were indeed cuter than she imagined when I shared the positive feedback about her shoot. Maybe I should shoot her a message again and just see if she'd ever be up for a return set. She does live at lot closer than where she initially moved away to.

Other Notables: Most recent member of the 1K Club.

This cutie pie, although she sometimes has the mouth of a sailor, is someone I'm so very glad to call friend. I remember when she came to work for the first time. She was so sweet and timid. I tried to get her to come and hang out with a group of friends from work, but she'd always thank me and decline. Naturally, I didn't ask her to shoot, thinking she'd turn me down. Not for about a year, anyhow. When I did ask, I couldn't believe her response.

"I'd love for you to photograph my toesies!" Kaycee said.

Damn girl! Had I known that, I would have certainly asked you much sooner! I guess good things come to those who wait, though. For the last four years, Kaycee has been one of my regulars. Although we didn't find time to shoot in 2017, we piled up a bunch of sets between 2014-16. Right now, we're looking at finding time to shoot, once this unbearable heat moves out of the region. It's literally been over 90-100 degrees and humid here for the last few weeks!

As you might have read in the previous installment of this blog series, I listed Emerald as the most recent member of the 1K Club, but now you read the same here. The two models were published in back-to-back weeks, with both joining the 1K Club with those updates. Since this was the case, I went back and edited Emerald's notables to say, "One of the most recent members of the 1K Club."

Other Notables: Camille's older sister. Rose's cousin. Shot her first sets on her 18th birthday. Debuted with two Halloween themed sets in back-to-back weeks.

This small-footed friend of mine could not wait to shoot for Soles of Silk. When she saw that we both had off from work on the day she turned 18, she came to me and asked if we could shoot. I, naturally, said yes and we shot two Halloween themed sets on our friend's porch. Both sets turned out amazing and I couldn't wait to get them online. One problem, however, Halloween was a few weeks away.

From that moment on, Kayleigh was regularly finding time in front of my camera. She loved kicking off her shoes, spreading her plump little toes, and even getting lots of foot rubs. Her small size 5.5 feet feel even smaller in your hands, believe me! I sometimes spent hours rubbing them. One time, I recall, I rubbed her feet through the entirety of two movies we watched back-to-back and then some, at our friend's house. She didn't pull them away and I wasn't stopping.

As the years passed, Kayleigh ended up moving out of state, which made me slowly milk out whatever sets I had left of her when publishing them to the site. Eventually, Kayleigh returned to this region and we caught up for a couple of sets one evening. I had wanted her to become a regular for me once again, but things just didn't happen that way.

Recently I have been in contact with Kayleigh about returning and we had a shoot set up to do just that. That was during the week where I had computer issues and she ended up with a blister too. I told that we should postpone and not force it with all that was going on. So right now I'm looking to shoot Kayleigh again for another return. I know you're all going to love seeing her back as she was always a popular model for the site. I couldn't even begin to describe how dependable she was shooting for me for those first few years. It would certainly be nice to have that be a thing once again. I'd love to see her join the 2K Club (2,000 photos) and keep adding onto that count. Hell, I'd love to see her in the 3K Club and beyond.

Keira (size 8)
Model #: 57
Debut Date: December 31, 2009
Published Sets: 2
Published Photos: 100
Other Notables: Debuted with a New Year's themed set (seen above). Appeared in the site first ever, 3-model set with Kimmie and Kellie.

To be perfectly honest, I didn't know Keira all too well when Kimmie and Kellie got her to shoot for Soles of Silk. Keira was their mutual friend and they told her about the site and showed her some of their photos. She was interested and came by to do the site's first three model set, as well as a New Year's themed one.

I thought Keira was beautiful and had very pretty, slender feet. It would have been nice to have gotten in a few more shoots with her, but she was a one time only model. It wasn't because she didn't enjoy it or anything, at least not to my knowledge. Keira just didn't have too much time, from what I recall, that matched up with my schedule. Then when the twins and I began growing apart after they found new jobs, it also meant I didn't really have them around to talk her into another shoot for me either.

Kellie (size 5)

Other Notables: Kimmie's twin sister. Appeared in first multi-model Wu's Feet Links feature set with Kimmie. Appeared in the site's first ever, 4-model set with Kimmie, Carmen, and Cheri. Appeared in the site's first ever, 3-model set with Kimmie and Keira.

When it comes to models from the site's early years who racked up quite the resume, Kellie can be found among the top. One half of the site's iconic twin duo, with her sister Kimmie, Kellie was always willing to lend me her tiny size 5's. We did day trips, shot after work, shot emergency sets when other models flaked out on me, shot with some of our other friends, and so much more. Kellie really did have fun with everything we did and I loved spending time with her, even when the camera wasn't pointed her way. I mean, that often meant I was rubbing her feet, but still, the company was good.

Like many good things in life, things eventually come to an end. Every boyfriend Kellie had for all the years we shot, never minded her shooting. One of them even encouraged her to do it. After they broke up, however, she met another guy she ended up dating seriously. He wasn't keen on her shooting and that's when she stopped. I would have loved to have gotten in a few more sets, had I known that would happen, but how could I? That's life. The two of them are now married, so I'm not thinking things will change. We haven't even talked in years either.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the 10 models above. Be on the lookout for Part 6 of this 10 part blog series in the days to come.
