Monday's Shoot - Ava & Carmella (New Model)

For those of you who follow along with this blog, and the site's Instagram (@SolesofSilk) or Twitter (@SolesofSilk), you know that I shot a friend of mine named Ava last week (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Ava"). At the conclusion of that blog I stated that the next time Ava and I shot, we might be including a mutual friend of ours. Well, today we shot again and that friend came and shot as well. Her name is Carmella and she has size 5 feet. You'll be seeing her and those itty bitty feet in just a moment. First, a little bit of backstory.

Both Ava and Carmella worked with me up until last year. Carmella got herself a new job and Ava has been off attending college, before coming back recently. Before that happened, however, both of these ladies turned 18 and I offered both of them a spot on the site's model roster. Carmella showed initial interest, but wasn't 100 percent sure. I told her that I'd rather not shoot her until she was. A short time later, Ava took me up on the offer, but we ran out of time to shoot before she left for school.

Now that Ava is back, we were finally able to shoot her first sets last week. With Ava and Carmella being such good friends, I think Ava's experiences made Carmella decide to go ahead and shoot as well. So hey, I got both these ladies at 19 instead of 18. Oh well! Good things come to those who wait, though! Now I have two more friends of mine on the site, and by the looks of it, they both liked shooting and will continue to do so. I'm sure they'll both desire a day that isn't so hot next time, though.

My initial plan was to shoot these two at noon, but the night before they asked if we could bump things up time to either 11 a.m. or 10 a.m. Having to close at work the night before, and always one to stay up late, I gave the girls a bit of crap, but told them I would make that happen. I did run a few minutes late, but hey, it turned out to be better as the temperature kept rising by the hour today. Guess we should have started at 9 a.m. and we wouldn't have been so sweaty! Although... you fans of sneakers and no socks are going to love knowing the final set today, the one that was done when it was at its hottest, had that theme. So maybe it was better off having that one done at that time frame, huh? More on that in a bit.

Ava listening to some music while us foot guys stare at her size 9 soles.

First up today was Ava. With this being Carmella's first shoot, I wanted her to see how I shoot my sets by watching Ava. Ava was my "veteran" today with a whopping two sets to her name. Yeah, she's a newbie too, but it didn't take Ava long to catch on last week. She asks questions, gives suggestions, and really has fun shooting. I can't emphasize that enough. She's texted me a few times to tell me as much since last week. I'm always glad to have my models enjoy this as I love spending the day with friends, doing something that I love, and just having a good time.

For Ava's set I didn't have her go with any footwear. This was a basic barefoot set, but one where we did a little bit of a theme. Ava brought along her headphones and a Bluetooth speaker. In this set, she was going to be listening to some tunes and putting on a little foot show. She put in the earbuds and stuck her feet out while I did my thing. This set was so basic, but tell me that all you foot guys out there wouldn't be sitting there watching a barefoot woman, like Ava, with her feet out, just like the photo above, if you came across her out in public.

The set went off without a hitch, although someone walking a dog did come by during the filming of the clip. It's become a running gag at this point that whenever it comes time to film a clip, I'm going to experience some kind of disturbance. Whether it's someone coming by, or some loud, oftentimes random noises, it's going to happen when I switch the camera into video mode. Oh well. I'm sure he saw me following Ava's big feet with my camera. Hopefully he was a foot guy too and enjoyed the view. I know I did and many of you would have as well.

With it being so hot, I decided to just shoot Carmella in the same exact spot as Ava. The two switched places and now it was Carmella's time to show off her feet for the very first time - a much smaller pair of size 5's, however. And believe me, they're look every bit as small as they look. They were so tiny only inches away from my camera. She is proud, however, that they're "as soft as a baby's ass," her words, not mine. She made that claim last night in a group text and I can vouch that they indeed are. Both girls' feet are very soft, to be honest.

Carmella began her set in her thigh high socks, which ultimately got pulled off throughout the set. She was worried that she was going to be really hot in those black socks. I assured her they wouldn't stay on long, but also knew that having her feet get nice and warm inside them wouldn't be a bad thing either.

When Carmella's little soles popped into view for the first time, I knew the next set, when both girls had their feet paired up, was going to offer a major size difference. A lot of you ask for that and I've been able to get a few team ups in the past with models having feet that were vastly different in size. Today was another major score for that request.

Carmella's video faired a little bit better. No one came by, but naturally we did get a car alarm going off across the river. I'm telling you... every time!

With all three of us hot, and both girls needing to change before the next set, we decided to take a few minute break in my car before shooting the final set of the day. The plans for the final set were to be a two girl set that would have both of them in sneakers and no socks. This was almost a theme Ava and I did last week, but diverted from for other themes. I'm glad that was the case as having two sets of feet coming out of sneakers only made it better.

After our break was over, and a short walk to a pier, we began shooting. I had already went over what I was looking for with this set in the car. I didn't want to be out in the heat any longer than we had to be. We were all hot and I was asking for a sunburn, since I didn't put on any sunscreen, so we jumped right into the set.

Ava grabbed Carmella's little foot for a fun photo and I just love how it came out.

Naturally the girls began the set in their sneakers. They had been wearing them since we got back to the car. With the temperature and the walk to the pier, naturally their feet got nice and hot inside their shoes. I know they were looking forward to getting them off. To have a little bit of fun, however, I had them each pop each other's feet out of their shoes. They didn't remove them fully, though. I just had them pop their heels out and then kick off their own shoes in the photos following. I thought a little bit of interaction would be nice. It was Ava's idea for the fun photo above, which turned out quite nice! I wish I had shot a few more like it, seeing it now. Maybe next time?

This set went by very fast and we shot the clip immediately following. I let the girls splash some water on their hot feet to cool them off. And now that I think about it, I don't think we had any disturbances during the clip. I'm surprised someone's boat wasn't sinking in the background, or a flock of angry geese didn't come by squawking and shitting all over the place. I get lucky every so often, I guess!

Today turned out to be another good day of photos that I was able to squeeze in with some friends. I haven't shot a ton of sets this year, since I'm sitting on so many with all I did in 2017. Still, I'm trying to get in a few new models, some unique sets with regulars, and have even been talking with several models who haven't shot in years for some upcoming shoots. So be on the lookout for new shoot blogs to come. Welcome Carmella to Soles of Silk and be sure to check out Ava's solo debut on the Wednesday, June 20, 2018 update. Carmella will follow her up on June 27.

1,000 Toes In: The First 100 Models of Soles of Silk, Pt. 2 (Ann - Briezzy Lane)

Welcome to the second 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:

Ann (size 7.5)
Model #: 40
Debut Date: April 11, 2007
Published Sets: 3
Published Photos: 142

I only had the pleasure of shooting Ann one time. I was introduced to her through Wendy. They were friends and Wendy asked me if I was interested in having Ann come on board. I told her I trusted her judgement and would love to add a new model to the site.

I began the day shooting Wendy and then Ann came by later. With Wendy's second set of the day wrapping up, Ann got to do her first one for the site (above). Shortly after, however, Ann saw just how crazy things could get. Wendy and her teamed up for a set that saw the two with a large bowl full of macaroni and cheese. All four of their feet got pushed into the bowl and there was so much cheesy goodness clumped up between all 20 of their precious toes.

That was the last time I ever saw Ann, or really had any contact with her. I don't know if she's still friends with Wendy as I'm not in regular contact with Wendy these days either, sadly.

Ashlyn (size 5)
Model #: 77
Debut Date: August 28, 2013
Published Sets: 6     
Published Photos: 321
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2013 (9th), 2015 (9th)
Other Notables: Has really smelly boots.

I remember the first time I saw Ashlyn, the older sister of a coworker of mine. She was with her family and came into our workplace. I thought she looked cute and wanted to ask her so bad if she'd be willing to shoot. Long story, short, however, she ended up being a friend of Ryan's. I asked Ryan to see if she'd be interested in shooting and the rest is history.

Our first shoot together was one I will never forget. She came out of her house barefoot and walked across the road, to my car, and got in. I immediately thought to myself, "Great, now her feet are going to be dry and dirty." That wasn't to be, however. They were still soft and smooth. Ashlyn admitted to me that she walks around barefoot all the time, so her feet are used to it.

When we got to our shoot location, the first set saw Ashlyn with a pair of boots that she brought along, which she slipped into while we were still in the car. After a little bit of a walk around the park, we sat down and began shooting. As the set progressed, and the boots came off, I could immediately smell them. They were strong and smelled like Fritos corn chips. Mind you, we were in a flower garden, and I could no longer smell the flowers. It was so fun and I've teased her about it ever since.

Ashlyn and I only got to shoot one additional time following that first day, but we have finally made plans to shoot again after a number of years. I'm so excited to be shooting this fun loving female again. I've always found her to be so beautiful and fun to be around. I hope she manages to schedule with me a few more times this year and build up a nice collection of new photos to add to the site.

Aspen (size 8)
Model #: 70
Debut Date: August 8, 2012
Published Sets: 12     
Published Photos: 949
Wu's Feet Links Features: All American Feet (July 2013)
Star Model Accolades: 2012 (2nd)
Set Blogs Appearances: 2012 (1st & 8th), 2013 (7th)
Other Notables: Shot her first photos for the site the day after turning 18. Only 51 photos shy of joining the 1K Club (1,000 photos). Always made me rub her feet, which she called "paws," since I nicknamed her "Cubster," back when we worked together.

I had such high hopes for Aspen. This girl wanted to shoot for me so bad before she was even old enough. She was friends with numerous other girls at our work, who also shot for me. Her desire to shoot was so high that she waited only one day after turning 18 to show off her soft, luscious soles for the first time. Had she not had plans on the actual day she turned 18, she said she would have shot on that day instead.

Needless to say, Aspen was an instant hit. She's still one of the most popular models to ever appear on my site. She did a bunch of photos during her initial year of 2012, including a memorable Christmas one with Ryan. Talk about a team up people couldn't get enough of! She also placed second to Wendy that year in the Star Model rankings. In 2013, she also shot often and then... gone!

I had always considered Aspen to be a very good friend, but for some reason she just up and changed her group of friends and rarely ever kept in touch with me, or several others. I kept asking her if she'd like to shoot again, and even managed to get sporadic replies from her, but no follow up once dates and times begin being mentioned. It's frustrating!

I actually texted her tonight to see if I could swing a shoot or two with her during an upcoming vacation of mine. I'm trying to shoot some models I haven't gotten to work with in a while and I told her I'd very much like for her to be one of them. It also bugs me like no other than she's only a single set away from breaking the 1,000 photo mark and joining the 1K Club.

Audrey (size 9)
Model #: 100
Debut Date: June 6, 2018
Published Sets: 1     
Published Photos: 63
Other Notables: 100th model to appear on the site.

The beautiful big feet above belong to the model who holds the distinction of being the 100th model to shoot for Soles of Silk. They belong to Audrey, a fun loving female who reached out to me in an email to ask about shooting for the site. Her sister, who knows a couple of people who have shot, told her about Soles of Silk and told her to check it out. I'm so damn glad she did!

Audrey admitted to being a little unsure about shooting, at first. By the end of her first, she was having a blast and we were all joking like we've known each other for a while. I said "we were all" because her sister, who also is very pretty, with cute feet, came along too. Her sister did not shoot though, but I told Audrey to tell her she's always welcome, if she ever wants to. She would have made for a good 100, 101 punch for the model count.

In the weeks to come, Audrey and I have come up with several fun shoot ideas and a few messy ones too. One of them even has quite the naughty connotation to it. She really liked some of the shirts that Mia Kay wore in her first sets (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Mia Kay"), and now it looks like she's got one for herself coming up. I can't wait!

Autumn (size 8.5)
Model #: 35
Debut Date: February 21, 2007
Published Sets: 4     
Published Photos: 232

Autumn and I are coworkers and have been friends for over a decade now. She's always been a very quiet, very private person. She doesn't bother anyone and never gets involved in drama. Although we were friends, I never approached her about shooting for the longest time. When I was discussing shooting new models one day with Abby at work, she mentioned Autumn as a possibility. I told her I wasn't sure she'd do it, so Abby decided to feel her out for me.

Long story short, Autumn was, more or less, waiting for me to ask her for some time. When I told her I just figured she'd say no, she rolled her eyes at me and shook her head. Soon thereafter, Autumn and I were doing her first ever photos and she become the 35th model to appear on the site.

Autumn and I only shot four total sets over several years. She got a new job, but does still work with me part time. I've asked her about shooting a few times, several years ago, but didn't seem to be into the idea. She didn't say no, but I felt like her body language said it for her. Some people just move on, or change their mind. I think Autumn is one such person.

Barbie (size 6)
Model #: 47
Debut Date: May 28, 2008
Published Sets: 3     
Published Photos: 161
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2008 (5th)
Other Notables: Has appeared on numerous other foot fetish and fetish sites over the years.

This adorable blonde, named Barbie, I only met with once. It only took me that one day, however, to become such a huge fan of her little feet and cute smile. She was travelling with Danielle, shooting with other photographers. When Danielle asked me if I'd like to shoot her, along with another model, who turned out to be Barbie, I took them up on the offer. They thought it might be nice to have a second photographer present during one of their stops so neither of them would have downtime as the other shot. I wound up getting a couple of sets with each model, as well as one of the two together.

Barbie was a hit for the site when she debuted in 2008. Even though she lived a few hours away, I had hoped I could meet up with her again. Her size 6's were adorable and would have looked great in regular sets over the years. Sadly, that was not to be the case.

Bethany (size 8)
Model #: 33
Debut Date: August 23, 2006
Published Sets: 5     
Published Photos: 348
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2006 (3rd & 5th), 2007 (1st)

During a visit to the beach to meet up with, and shoot, Molly, I was introduced to her friend, Bethany. Her, and her then boyfriend, came to Molly's condo and we all hung out one night in the hot tub. I was immediately taken back by how cute Bethany was. She was quiet and shy, but deep down inside, I wondered if she'd be up for shooting. I didn't bring it up, however, since her boyfriend was present.

As the night went on, Molly brought it up instead, telling her all about it and how much fun it was. Before Bethany left that night, she agreed to come back the next day to shoot for me. Talk about lucking out as I had already done some wonderful sets with Molly, and now, I was getting a brand new model that I didn't expect, and a damn cute one at that.

Bethany turned out to be so fun to shoot and we got along quite well. Like so many other models, I hoped she would become a regular on the site. For a while, it looked like she might. She did live a couple hours away, but still managed to be a part of the site's second ever, four model set. That set also included Molly, and Madison, and Lauryn, and was themed to Christmas. Then Bethany got her equally attractive cousin, Natalie, to shoot as well. That would be our last shoot together. From what I understand, I think Bethany has moved to the west coast, or did for some time. I have not been in touch with her in many years.

Bobbie (size 8.5)
Model #: 81
Debut Date: July 2, 2014
Published Sets: 4     
Published Photos: 283
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2014 (5th & 9th)
Other NotablesDebuted with a Fourth of July themed update (seen above).

I worked with Bobbie for a couple of years. We always got along and sometimes hung out together with the same group of friends. For the majority of that time, however, she knew about my site, but didn't shoot for it. Years later, she became single and decided to give it a try.

In all honesty, I loved shooting with Bobbie. She was worried she wouldn't photograph well, as being in front of the camera was never something she clamored for. She did great though and had a lot of fans. They loved her and her feet. We shot a couple of times and after she got a new job, we sort of lost touch. I still speak to her from time to time and we've tossed around the idea of shooting again, which she always says she wants to do. It just never happens. Perhaps I need to reach out again and try to get some dates planned.

Bridgette (size 11)
Model #: 85
Debut Date: December 24, 2014
Published Sets: 3     
Published Photos: 218
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2014 (10th)
Other Notables: Is Felicia's twin sister. Debuted with a Christmas themed set, followed by a New Year's themed set, both with Felicia. Currently tied with Alice and Molly for biggest feet on the site.

Bridgette and I used to work together and her twin sister, Felicia, and I still do. I worked with both at once and eventually Felicia began shooting for Soles of Silk. Bridgette, however, took some time to come around.

It was ultimately Felicia who got her sister to come aboard and be presented as a Christmas and New Year's gift in consecutive updates at the end of 2014. People loved those sets, although some question if they are in fact, twins. Kimmie and Kellie, the first set of twins to appear on the site are identical, where as Bridgette and Felicia are fraternal. Still twins, nonetheless.

I was glad to have Bridgette shoot for the site as I knew she had big feet. I always used to tease her about them at work and I knew there would certainly be fans of them when her sets made their way onto the site. I ended up being right and hoped to see Bridgette make regular appearances, but that turned out not to be the case. It seems like a few boyfriends over the years have been behind her reluctance to shoot again. The door, however, is always open should that ever change.

Briezzy Lane (size 8.5)
Model #: 53
Debut Date: May 25, 2009
Published Sets: 3     
Published Photos: 126

Briezzy Lane is another model I only met with once and someone I met through another model of mine. Jordana and I would try to get together whenever we found ourselves in the other's neck of the woods. On one pass through, Jordana asked me if I'd be interested in shooting some photos with her friend, who was traveling with her. She told me that her name was Briezzy and she was just getting into modeling. I said sure and made my way down to see them one evening after work.

As always, my photos with Jordana looked great. When Briezzy shot, I couldn't believe just how long her toes were. I knew I had something special for all the fans of long toes out there. When she spread them, look out! Just look at that photo above. Those things separate so far from one another! It's a thing of beauty!

I shot two solo sets with Briezzy that evening as well as a set of the two together. I really loved the duo set as they poured lotion all over their feet and I watched them slip all about. That, however, was the last time I saw Briezzy and those long toes.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the 10 models above. Be on the lookout for Part 3 of this 10 part blog series in the days to come.

Monday's Shoot - Ava (New Model)

The June 6, 2018 update saw newcomer, Audrey, join the Soles of Silk model roster as the 100th model to appear on the site. This week's update, June 13, will feature Mia Kay's debut. And now, the June 20 update will feature the third new consecutive model when Ava's first set makes its way onto the site.

I know Ava through work and when she turned 18 last year, I told her she would be welcome to shoot for me, if that was of any interest to her. At first, she said she'd think about it. As time went on, she told me she was considering doing it. Knowing a few people who shot for me including Alice, Melani, and eventually, Maya, helped in that she knew what I did was legit and ultimately, fun. Right before she was schedule to go away for school, she told me she decided that she'd go ahead and do it. With the timing, I told her that maybe I could come out to where she goes to school and we could find some settings I'm not used to using. She liked that idea, but ultimately, I never got the chance.

Now that Ava's first year of college is over, she came back home and back to work. We've been talking about setting up a shoot for weeks, but the weather around here has been nothing but rain for days on end - even to the point of flooding in certain regions. We just let Mother Nature do its thing, knowing that we'd get there eventually. Well, today was that day, although we still waited out some passing rain showers. We managed to get in some great sets in though and Ava realized just how fun shooting can be. She had a blast and I'm glad that yet another one of my friends decided to give this a try.

I picked Ava up at 1 p.m. and we rode out to a store to pick up some props for a set that I thought about doing today. Ultimately, however, we decided to save that particular set for another day. Still, we have those props now, so that's good. 

After leaving the store we drove out to our first location, a nature center along the river. I have used the spot a time or two in the past and know that it's rarely ever crowded. Since school is still in, we were one of only a few cars on the lot. With Ava already wearing the outfit for this set, we got out of the car, hit the trail, and were on our way to a small landing right off the shoreline.

Ava showing off her soft, wrinkly feet in her first ever set shot for Soles of Silk.

Within a few minutes of arriving, I was in the middle of going over what it is that I do when shooting, so that Ava would know what to expect. During my instructions, I noticed something move under one of the legs of the wood bench you can see Ava on in the photo above. It was under that back, left corner. I stopped to check it out, saying it looked like an animal. I thought it was a little turtle at first. Ava jumped up, and from that moment onward, she was constantly on watch. Why? Well, because that turtle ended up being a frog. Just one one frog though, a couple of tiny frogs peeking out from under the bench. Then, a few minutes later, I noticed a few more frogs inside a hole in the pier as well. All in all, there was six different frogs that we were able to count. I think Ava was worried that they were going to jump on her, but she managed to do alright, considering.

During this first set, Ava and I talked quite a bit. We moved a little slower in this first set than we did on the second one, but we got in a lot of great photos nonetheless. I had Ava put her feet straight out, and even up on the back of the bench, and finally, on the nearby railing. The railing shots were some of my favorite of the bunch, and I even got her little toes to lock together since they were so close in the shots prior. It was too cute and that is why I picked the picture above to preview this set.

With her first set now in the books, we decided to go ahead and shoot our second set at a nearby ball field. When we arrived, however, we decided to save the set for another day. It was probably for the best too, as I think I can find a few more props to really make the set better when we do it. It was then onto another location where Ava could do one of the sets that she was looking forward to - one with baby oil.

I drove us to a park that I thought might be less crowded than some of the others in the area. Since Ava was going to be pouring baby oil on her feet, I didn't want people coming up on us over and over. It's easy to stop shooting when it's just my typical barefoot sets, but when you add something like baby oil, the mess and shiny feet just draw attention. I didn't want that for one of Ava's first few sets.

After walking around the area for a couple of minutes, I noticed that there was several people fishing along the water. There was also a couple of guys smoking some pot too, so away from the water we went. Instead we moved to the dead center of the park. We used the flat benches there so it would allow Ava to extend her legs nicely. It also seemed like everyone walking around was heading down by the water, so I figured we'd be left alone. I turned out to be right.

Ava couldn't wait to squirt baby oil all over her feet today.

When we sat down to finally start shooting, I noticed some of the nearby clouds were getting dark. There was a breeze picking up, so we decided to shoot this one a little quicker than the first. I didn't want it to start raining in mid-set and have to scrap it. Right to shooting we went!

I knew Ava was itching to squirt the baby oil onto her feet, but I told her she had to do some barefoot, non-oil shots first. We got in a few of those, and then the fun began. Ava dribbled and squirted the oil all over her size 9's and I snapped photo after photo. With each pose I was grabbing several shots, some with her teasing the oil being dripped, and others, with it splashing her soles and toes.

Before we knew it, we had enough photos to make a set. With a helicopter taking off a few miles away, I decided to go ahead and shoot the clip before it got to be too loud. Luckily for me, both clips shot today were ones Ava swore felt like no time had passed. She thought they went by quick. Most models say they feel like they take forever. I guess that's good!

With two sets shot we decided to call it a day. We already have one set theme ready to go for the next time and we might even be including another new model with Ava's next shoot. This potential newbie used to work with us and is a good friend of Ava's. She's someone who expressed interest last year when she turned 18, but ultimately decided not to. Now she's expressing an interest again, so we shall see.
