A Look Back at 2009 on Soles of Silk

Charlee debuted her lovely feet in 2009.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Just a few weeks ago it felt like the start of football season. And not too long before that it felt like the start of summer. Before that baseball season was just getting under way. And just a little before that I was debuting the then newest sole mate to the site for New Year's day, Keira. It's hard to believe that 2009 has come and gone so fast. I don't know if I was just that busy and it flew by, or I'm just getting older and don't remember stuff. Probably a bit of both. Hopefully I'm not forgetting too much, however, because this column will be quite bare. So I try to hurry along the best I can to remember all the highlights of the year 2009 on Soles of Silk.

The site's first three model set was done in 2009 with Kimmie, Kellie, and Keira.

New Models
To start things off, I'm going to take a few moments to discuss each one of the site's models who debuted their feet over the course of this year, starting with the above mentioned, Keira.

Keira was met through my friend, and one of the site's main models, Kellie. I was able to get Keira to do a shoot with a New Year theme for her debut and then one with the twin duo of Kimmie and Kellie. Both sets were a huge hit with members and non-members.

A few months later, in March, the site saw back to back new sole mates. The first to debut in March was Layla's younger sister, Jaylee. Layla had mentioned to me that her sister was up for posing and told me her feet we also adorable. I jumped at the chance and Layla sure was right about her feet. To break her in the right way, I made her smash those little feet into a cheesecake. It's always fun to see a first timer's reaction to something like that. We did a few other shoots as well, some of which you should be seeing over the next few months.

Also making her debut in March was Briezzy Lane, a friend of Jordana's. Both were in town for a couple of days and Jordana asked me if I'd want to do some photos. She also asked me if I'd be up for getting a new model as well because her friend was looking to pose. I said sure and met them for a few sets, most of which haven't even been posted as of yet.

In May I debuted the site's next new model, Debbie D. Debbie actually contacted me looking to pose. She had apparently met Jordana at a modeling function and Jordana mentioned Soles of Silk to her. A few weeks later we came up with a plan to shoot and on one very rainy day I made two hour drive to take her photos. We ended up staying inside for the most part because of the weather, but did get in a set under the cover of her porch.

No new models found their way to the site over the course of the summer, but toward the end of September this week's model, Charlee, showed off her adorable feet. We had wanted to shoot a few weeks prior, but were unable to arrange anything. Charlee has become a trusted friend of mine and she can't wait to pose again. I know I can't wait to do some more shots with her.

The final model to make her debut this year did so like no other. I never had a debuting model have sets posted in two consecutive weeks until Kayleigh did with her back to back Halloween sets. What made these sets even better was the fact that they were done on her 18th birthday. I planned on just shooting her a few days afterward, but she wanted to do it on the day she turned 18. I sure wasn't going to argue.

Mindee, along with a few other models brought it strong in 2009.

Existing Models Who Came Strong
Since the site opened Madison has been the site's most photographed model. Even today she currently hold that crown. Since earlier this year, however, she's been almost impossible to get in touch with, let alone shoot due to a new relationship. Not being one to cause drama, I just decided to let her do her thing and if she wants to pose, awesome. If not, total bummer, but understandable.

With Madison's photo count staying still, a few models have begun to rise. Not all of them are close to taking over the lead as the most photographed model, but the following girls really came through in 2009 posing for more photos than usual - some of which remains future content as it is not all posted. These models include: Wendy, Mindee, Cierra, Layla, Kimmie, and Kellie. I don't foresee any of these six girls going anywhere anytime soon and I look forward to each and every shoot I get to do with them.

On the Horizon?
It's not always easy to know what the future will bring, but I have a few loose ideas and possibilities that may interest you.

The first of these are more new models. I missed out on a chance to photograph two friends of mine, who are also sisters, before they went away to college for the fall semester. I'm going to try to catch up with them before they go back.

There is also another girl who will be making her debut after turned 18 in February. She's friends with a few of the girls here who have turned 18 lately and the sister of a friend of mine. Add in that this friend's girlfriend may also be posing and there are a handful of new possibilities for the start of the new year.

And in closing, I've been slowly working on a site redesign. I have been wanting to modernize things here, but there is no timetable on this. You'll probably see this redesign first implemented in the guest section and then in the members area at a later date.

Random End of the Year Notes - 2009

A little get together where a few of my models were also able to attend.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

In a few days it will be December and then shortly thereafter, it will 2010. This year has gone by pretty quickly. This past week, however, not so much. Before I get into some news and notes about the site, let me get into this real quick.

Last week some of you may have noticed that the site update came about 12 hours later than usual. Here's why. On Monday I had about 25 friends come by for a Monday Night Football party to watch the Ravens play the Browns. Needless to say, I got pretty messed up - more than I have in a really long time. As you can see above, five of the site models made it to the party. Those models from left to right are: Kimmie, Mindee, Kellie, Cierra, and KelseyPrecious was supposed to make it, but had to cancel last minute. 

Kellie's boyfriend took the shot above. I thought some of you might want to see it. I would have had them remove their shoes, but most of them had boyfriends/husbands over, so I decided to play it safe. I could have had some other sole mates over as well, but I kept the party 21-plus. Kayleigh gave me crap about that since her ass just turned 18 in October.

On Tuesday I had a house to put back together and it took me forever - add in the fact I had a hangover and blah. It took a long time to put the house back in order because of all of the purple decorations and a ton of Ravens memorabilia I had set up. One of my female friends, who I've been after to shoot since I ran The 10 Little Piggies back in college, helped me decorate. She told me she thinks she's going to go ahead and pose finally. I can't wait. It took like 10 years, but better late than never.

Last week also marked some sad times. My 12-year-old dog had to be put to sleep. He was getting old and wasn't getting around too good for about a week's time. He stopped eating and you could tell he was in pain. Hector, the name given to him by our neighbor who originally owned him, was quite the pooch and I sure miss his fat beagle butt sleeping on my bed and begging me for some pizza crust.

Now onto some site oriented material. As I said above, I should have a new model posing in the next few months. I'm really hoping she doesn't chicken out. She's always hid her feet from me, although she'd let me see them just long enough to laugh and tease me about checking them out. There was this one time, however, where she got a little messed up and had her feet in my lap for a massage. That was also many, many years ago, but I never fail to remind her of that.

Another girl should also soon make her way to the site. She was originally supposed to pose about a year and a half ago when I helped her out with a little school project. Well, she kept telling me she was busy when I asked her if she could shoot, so I pretty much wrote her off. Well, out of nowhere last week she contacted me and told me that she still owes me and asked for my schedule. I really shouldn't wait around and get her photographed. I used to work with her at another job I held and although she admits that she doesn't think highly of feet, I found hers to be very pretty.

Last year you might have remembered the Thanksgiving themed photo set I did with Autumn. That year was the only year I've done a Thanksgiving theme. This year I didn't plan anything out and with all that has been going on, it slipped my mind. That being said though, I have asked Colleen to do this year's Christmas set. It's been a while since I shot her and it will be awesome to get her back in front of the camera. I love her playfulness and of course, those adorable feet of hers.

Speaking of coming back, I mentioned a few weeks ago that Precious should be posing again soon. I haven't scheduled anything with her yet because of how busy I've been. She mentioned it the other day when she went with me to see Twilight: New Moon. Yes, I saw that chick flick. I'll reserve commenting on this as I don't want this column to become a negative movie review column.

With the start of 2010 I hope to get back behind the camera a little more often. Apart from a few shoots, namely Charlee's and Kayleigh's debuts, I haven't really shot much of anything. 

Over the summer I had shot a ton of sets with numerous models and I haven't yet posted any of them. Cierra has a bunch of new material in waiting (why I've been vigilant in getting her older, non-tattooed foot sets up), Layla and her sister Jaylee have quite a few as does Wendy. They're not the only ones who I have sets left of, like Mindee, for example who is next week's update. I do know I have a new model set to debut in February. Why am I waiting to February, you ask? Well, she has to turn 18, just as Kayleigh did. And like Kayleigh, this girl is sure to be a hit!

Well, I hope all of my fellow Americans have a great Thanksgiving. To everyone else, hope you have a good Thursday.

Treats, No Tricks this Halloween

Kayleigh wanted to pose on the day she turned 18. Who was I to argue?

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

This year for Halloween you won't have to worry about any kind of trickery - it's going to be all treats this year... and this is one place the saying, "trick or treat, smell my feet," actually holds true. Let me explain.

On Monday, October 12 a coworker finally turned the big one, eight as in 18. Her name is Kayleigh and she has known about the site for some time. A number of the girls at work have posed for me and you know how girls can talk. Well, with this coworker's birthday being in the month of October, I asked her if she wanted to be my Halloween update. Kayleigh agreed and told me she was open to pose on her actual birthday. I was pumped.

If you haven't done so yet, you can catch a glimpse of Kayleigh on this week's Coming Soon previews. I'm posting her first set next week and then the following week posting her second set. Yes, two weeks back-to-back of the site's newest model and her tiny size 5.5 feet - a tiny set of peds on a tiny gal. Furthermore, I have yet to post the same model in back-to-back updates as far as photo galleries are concerned.

The shoots with Kayleigh went really well. She was doing like some of the site regulars such as Cierra and Kellie by coming up with her own poses and things she wanted to do. Yes, you'll be in store for some fun shots when you see the ones that she came up with. Let me just say that her mouth had something to do with most of them.

I hope you enjoy these two sets and the video clips that will also be posted over the next two weeks. I have no doubts that you will.

Kayleigh did two Halloween themed sets that will be published back-to-back.

Some 'Precious' News

Precious expressed an interest to return to Soles of Silk.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

A couple of weeks ago while I was at work I was payed a visit by a friend and one of the site's sole mates. That sole mate was Precious.

Precious hasn't posed for the site since 2006. As with some others, some things in life came first and we weren't able to get together to do photos. Couple that with us losing touch for a bit of time and here it is three years later and I'm having a chat with her.

During my conversation with Precious she informed me that she is willing and able to do some "foot stuff" again for the site. I smiled at the term "stuff" and told her that I was glad to hear that. Since it was a busy day at work, I didn't really get to chat with her too much, but I gave her my cell number and made sure I had her number in my cell.

Since that day we've exchanged a few text messages to catch up and chat a little further. It looks like we might head out and catch the upcoming Zombieland movie next week. I'm looking forward to catching up with her as I've always found her to be a really fun person. I'm going to be sure to run some shoot plans by her. She told me tonight that she's still game for some photos and we'll have to talk about it. I'll be sure to keep all of you informed.

Mindee - Footography

Mindee has been modeling for quite a few new sets, which makes me quite happy!

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It's time to take a special look at another one of the site's sole mates. This time around, Mindee is up to bat with her size 8 feet.

I've known Mindee for a number of years now. We met when she began working with me. Right away I thought she was a real sweet girl and we hit it off as friends. At the time I was not running Soles of Silk. A few years later, however, I was laying out my plans to do so and was thinking of girls that I knew who I could ask to pose. Mindee was one of those friends.

Initially Mindee was reluctant to pose, claiming that her feet were ugly. Now I knew that she was either pulling my leg or she just didn't think of her feet in the way that someone like you or myself would. I had seen her feet and knew that her feet certainly were not ugly. I didn't give up though and ended up getting her to agree to pose, "If I really needed her to." 

Well, of course I, "really needed her to."

In her first sets for Soles of Silk we drove out to a local college and I decided that Mindee was going to do a set that promoted one of the local pro sports teams, the Orioles. In the first set she was down in the dugout and in the next, sitting up on the fence by one of the foul poles. Looking at her size 8 feet that day I knew that I had to convince her to keep posing for me. Like I said above, I always thought of her as a great friend and I found her feet to be adorable. This was my first extended look at my weakness, her soles, and they were lovely.

After these first sets were taken, it took a few months to get the web site designed and take photos of some of the other debut models. It was shortly after the site opened that Mindee came to me wanting to do her next set. We were at work one afternoon and it was snowing for hours on end. Our manager decided to call it a day and close early. Mindee told me she wanted to do a set out in the snow. I asked her if she was serious. Not only did I know that it would be very cold, but my camera had also been sent in to be repaired. She swore her mother's camera was nice and said we could use it. Not wanting to turn the girl down, I went for it and got in her snow set. The poor girl's feet were ice cold and so red by the end of that one.

Over the next few years Mindee went on to do a number of other sets, even posing for one that I ultimately lost on my laptop of her with her cousin, Mariah, in front of a Baltimore City police station. Luckily the video clip somehow survived. Here is a look at Mindee's current footography, including lost and yet unpublished sets:

A funny thing happened over the elapsed time period from those first sets to the newest ones with Mindee. What used to be a shy friend of mine, claiming that her feet were ugly, has turned in one of my most dependable and energetic models I have. Every time I chat with Mindee she always tells me to let her know when I need her for more photos. If it was up to me, I'd shoot photos of her every day if I could.

Looking to the future I feel that Mindee will continue to be one of the site's mainstays. So many people have had so many great things to say about from the site debut to now. With each and every set I think Mindee has gotten more and more comfortable with posing those heavenly feet of hers for all of us. I can't wait to see her again to do some more photos. Any suggestions for themes? She's endured ice cold snow, posing her feet out in public with countless onlookers and even dealt with having Cierra's super sweaty feet, complete with clinging sock fuzzies in her hands. What do you all think should be next on Mindee's plate?

This set is still unpublished and will be added in the weeks and months to come.

Closing the Soles of Silk MySpace

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Over the weekend I closed the Soles of Silk MySpace page. I made an announcement on the forum over on Wu's Feet Links, but I wanted to make a statement here as well.

When I first made the Soles of Silk MySpace page I really liked the interaction that it brought. Over its course, however, I will admit that I was liking it less and less for a number of reasons. Here are the main reasons why:

About a year ago Carmen called me all upset because she had gotten an email from someone on MySpace that was included pretty much every curse word made and said that the person sending it was going to find her. Now Carmen never made a MySpace page for her foot modeling. This person was able to find her personal one and it understandably scared her. She did all the things like blocking the person and I even took her off my own friends list in case they found her through mine. 

Well, just last week Mindee got an email that had the same exact paragraph of text in it. I told her about Carmen's experience and that it looks like this douche bag emails girls with the same email, trying to scare them.

Now the above reason is the main reason why I decided to close that and my personal MySpace pages. But in addition, I was really getting tired of all the spam letters I'd get in my inbox over there. Seriously, I think every cam girl in the world wanted to have sex with me.

When it comes to the loss of interaction, which was the one thing that I really liked at the start, well, that had become pretty much a non-factor lately. I'd get a great email or question every once in a while, but to be honest, most of the people are either asking for free photos or telling me they want to suck on my toes (the page had it posted in three areas that the page was for a site and the web master/photographer is a male).

Now that I have this MySpace page closed, I am thinking about other options for communication with members and non-members. I don't know a lick about Twitter and I have a Facebook for my personal use. I am not going to use Facebook for site promotion, however. I really prefer the Wu's Feet Links Forum, but I am thinking that it might be time to try one of these other avenues as well. Any suggestions?

Random Thoughts - August 2009

Cierra and I shot on one of the hottest days that I can remember to do this football set.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Man was it flippin' hot out this weekend! I found this out the hard way when Cierra and I took a trip downtown to do this year's Ravens themed set for the site. Now, before I have to hear about how you're team's better, just look above and think about Cierra's feet stuck in a pair of Converse All Stars and socks on a day that reached 97 degrees. Furthermore, we all know how much her feet can sweat when it's cold outside, let alone just under 100 degrees. Now who's really thinking about sweaty guys playing sports?

So, what's on the horizon for Soles of Silk? Well, this week was supposed to have a new model shown in the coming soon previews, but with Monday actually being hotter than it was on Cierra's shoot on Sunday, we decided to try shooting another day. I really can't wait to debut this girl as she's only 18 and will bring a little bit of much needed diversity to this site. We have a couple of ideas planned for our shoot when we get together, so be on the lookout for Charlee's debut.

After August 17 I'll be able to add another new model to the site. This girl is Serbian and is ready to pose. She has mentioned ideas to me at work. And to make the deal even better, her older sister wants to pose too. Her sister is 19 and I've been friends with both sisters for a couple of years now. I would have asked the older sister last year, but I had a feeling that she wouldn't be interested. I was wrong because she approached me a few weeks ago about wanting to pose. Be on the lookout for both sisters soon. And yes, I plan on shooting them together to add the third set of sisters to the site along with Kimmie and Kellie, and Layla and Jaylee.

While on the subject of Kellie, she has been quite busy with school, but we talk about shoot ideas every chance we can get. I playfully made her list of about 10 photo shoot themes that we have to get together to do sometime soon. She told me she has a few hours coming up in about a week and we're planning on trying to squeeze in a set or two. I would really like to get with her for a day and do a bunch, but I suggested that we squeeze in a few here and there to get some of these ideas done. Plus, I helped her with her school group project a few weeks ago because she needed some help making a brochure. Well, she got a 100 percent score on it, so now she owes me three hours worth of foot massage time (me giving, of course) for my three hours of work designing it. Yeah, what a horrible trade for her, huh?

And now for some bad news. As of late the site's most photographed model, Madison, has been MIA with me and most of her friends. She seems to have a new interest in her life, to which I am happy for her. Unfortunately, she has not responded to a single e-mail, text message or phone call, so I am not sure where she stands for doing more photos. She's always been a great friend of mine and someone who was always there for me with this site when I needed photos. I really hope we haven't seen the last of her. Next week I am posing one of the two photo sets I have of her already shot. The other will make it's way to the site at a later date. Again, I really hope we haven't seen the last of her here. I'll keep you posted.

Sweating with Cierra

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

After a cancelled set of photo shoot dates over the weekend I finally caught up with Cierra. We were supposed to get together Saturday night and do several sets and then again Sunday morning for a special themed one. She wasn't able to meet on Saturday and the forecast was calling for rain and storms all day on Sunday, so I said we will just find another day for that too.

I talked to Cierra on Sunday and joked about how the rain only lasted through the morning when it was supposed to be an all day thing. She said that if I wanted to shoot Tuesday night, she was open and that if we wanted to, the upcoming Sunday she was available to do the other set too. I agreed and spent several hours tonight with one of the site's most popular models... and see her feet do their trademark sweating.

Cierra's soles were soaked in sweat from the moment we began shooting.

Our first set was done outdoors and Cierra was wearing a pair of black flip flops. When she kicked them off her soles were shiny and drenched. You could also see the dampness glistening inside her flip flops. I just had to tease her. She laughed and stuck them out toward me and tried her best to swear that she hates that - all the while smiling.

Throughout this first set her feet were sweating and every little piece of grass, dirt and even an ant clung to her soaked, wet soles. Luckily there was a photographer there to brush that crap off.

Cierra loves Converse All Stars, so we did a set with a few of the pairs she owns.

We headed back to her place to do two more sets. The first of those sets had her with multiple pairs of shoes. I had her putting them on and pulling them off, but without any socks involved. Yes, those feet can be seen glistening in these as well. I'd blame it on those photo lights making things toasty, but that air conditioner was cranked and I can honestly say it is just her feet.

This set was actually supposed to be done with another pair of boots. Last year she had the set with the fuzzy brown boots and no socks and people went nuts over it. We were going to do it twice, but I couldn't resist the shoes she showed me. Plus it was her idea to do the shoes and I love when a model is passionate enough to make her own shoot ideas. No worry though, I told her when it gets cold out and it boots weather, she's still got that on her agenda.

Cierra is always wanting to stick her feet into something yummy!

Our final set saw her once again in a kitchen pushing those little feet into some more sweets. She's been known to love pushing her feet into all kinds of food (at her request), and this set is no exception.

So now to the big tease about this whole thing. When Cierra and I get together we tend to do such great work that I want to post everything as soon as possible. Well, I still have two sets from the past that I haven't been able to get up yet. They were done prior to her star tattoo on her foot that you can see in her feature set on Wu's Feet Links titled, "Foot & Size Tease." So I can't say all these sets I just wrote about will not be up anytime soon. But I'll throw you with two bones at least.

  1. I had Cierra do an extra clip wearing socks tonight. I am posting that with this update. Not only is she in socks, she's in 3 pairs of them. Talk about warming up a pair of sweaty feet. (Lotsa Socks Clip).
  2. Cierra's set being done on Sunday will be up before football season and that's all I'm saying about that one.

New Models on the Way

Cierra is one of many coworkers, and former coworker who have modeled for me.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

As many of you know, I don't hide from my foot fetish. Almost all my friends know I have one. Although I don't bring it up as a topic of conversation every chance I get, it does come up enough for it to be a regular topic of chat.

Where I work I've been able to get a number of my co-workers to pose for me. Over the years I've worked with the following models found on this site: A'Kasjia, Abby, Amber, Autumn, Carmen, Cheri, Chloe, Cierra, Colleen, Kellie, Kelsey, Kimmie, Lauryn, Madison, Mindee, Precious, and Shayna.

Now, not all of the girls currently work with me that are on that list, but a number of them do. Girls like Kellie are always talking to me about shoots she wants to do. In doing so, there have been girls who have overheard and asked about the site. Some of those girls have shown interest before I even asked them to pose. Others have asked me to take their pictures, but are not yet old enough to do so. I don't go around asking them to pose before that age of 18, it is just that they've heard about it, hear that it's just feet and think they can do it. I tell them when they turn 18, I'd be more than happy.

One such girl turns 18 this August. One of the models told her that she should do it when she turns 18. And to make it even sweeter, her sister, who also works with us, is 19. Both are cute, but I never asked the older sister to pose because I thought she'd turn me down. Well, the older sister asked me last weekend if she could pose. I said sure and she mentioned that in a month or so she could do one with her sister.

Another girl who turned 18 about a month ago has been thinking about posing and finally agreed to do it. She knew about the site before and told me she wasn't surprised when I asked her to pose. This girl is mixed race, which intrigues me. I've been looking to diversify the site models as much as possible.

A third girl, who is friends with the ones mentioned above, came to me recently and told me she turns 18 in October. I asked her what her birthday is and I'm thinking about getting her debut set up for Halloween.

And lastly, one of the above girls mentioned that her good friend just turned 18 and she told her about my site. Apparently she is interested in posing. She was on a recent amusement park trip and wearing flip flops. Next time I see her I'll be sure to let her know she's more than welcome to pose.

Be on the lookout over the next few months for some of these girls. Some are already 18 or older and their friends/sister are soon on their way. I won't talk shoots with them due to that age (totally by the book with that), but it looks like the girls like to chat.

Week of the Fourth

Colleen will be making her debut next week.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Well, it is the week of the Fourth of July. This year is going by blazing fast. It's already been a month now since I turned 30, which seemed like last week.

This week I've gotten some vacation time and have been keeping busy. This is why the site update is going up a day late her. I hit up Dorney Park yesterday with a bunch of friends. Being a roller coaster junkie, I usually hit up a few amusement parks each year. One thing I've noticed is that there are feet galore to be seen. The last few parks, however, I wasn't too happy with the views. Lots of girls had no nail polish on or had some majorly chipped polish. Yesterday, however, was different. There was lots of cute toes and soft soles on display. I saw every color and shade of polish that I could imagine. There was a big Asian population at the park too and being a sucker for Asian girls, I was loving that.

In addition to the park feet I've been trying to keep busy with some photo shoots during my time off. On Monday I was able to meet with Layla and Jaylee for some photos. We got in a handful of sets that will be hits for sure. 

On Tuesday I was supposed to shoot Kellie and Keira, but there was off and on thunderstorms all day long. We decided to try to see what we can do on Friday instead. 

I also just got done doing some photos of Kelsey and a new model making her debut next week, Colleen (see above). And I might also have another new girl doing her first shoot before the week is out. She is a friend of a coworker and just turned 18. She said she was thinking about it, so I told my friend to try to persuade her.

Well, the sole mates and I wish everyone a fun and safe Fourth of July. Enjoy the weather before it gets cold out again. As fast as this year has been going, it will be jacket weather before you know it!

Wendy - Footography

Wendy has been a go to model for me, even before Soles of Silk was opened.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It is time to take another in depth look at one of the site's sole mates in what I've come to call a "footography." In the past we've looked at Madison, Kellie, Layla, and Cierra. Now I'd like to give another model some attention. She might not have 1,000 photos yet, but she's quickly on her way and sitting pretty with 858 and counting. This sole mate is none other than Wendy.

Last week I posted an amazing set of Wendy that we did at a park. In it, she's sitting in front of a small dam, showing off her adorable soles that I've loved since I first saw them in college about 10 years ago now. Man, how time flies!

When I first met Wendy all those years ago, she was a fellow classmate and artist. Dating Abby at the time and just coming into my own with the whole foot photography hobby, I quickly became known as the "foot guy" at our small art school. It was also during this time that I began asking other girls in my classes to kick off their shoes and pose. I used to do some more artsy photography, if you will, using their feet and then some downright casual photos of the girls as well. I'd use the artsy shots for stand alone photography and use the casual shots for my drawing, painting and computer graphic material.

The first time I asked Wendy to pose, I wasn't sure how she'd respond. Although we shared a few classes, I found her to be a little more private than some of the other girls. I decided to ask anyhow and was happy when she said sure. Back then, I also remember her saying she never painted her nails. That first shoot her toes were naked.

Over the two years we attended the same school together I met up with her a few times to do some photos. We became friends and luckily for me, she's been one of the few people I was able to keep in touch with since our college days.

While we busy in our art studies I managed to create my first foot fetish sites and Wendy was hands down the most popular model from those sites. One set in particular was the cause for more emails than any other. Wendy and I managed to meet up for a set. She had been living on a waterfront property and we did the set out on the pier, using some rope and the pilings. It was the first set I had done of her with her nails painted and boy were they bright - bright pink to be exact! She also wore a toe ring and had her tongue pierced. In one shot she stuck her tongue out and that was easily the favorite among site goers.

Fast forward all these years later and I'm running Soles of Silk. After opening the site I came across Wendy's contact information and decided to see if she might be open for baring those soles again. Knowing she had been so popular previously, it only made sense to get those sexy size 8's back on camera. Luckily for me, hell, and you, she agreed and we met to do our first sets in many years. We even got yelled at by an art museum security guard in her first set when she stuck her feet all over a sculpture. Oops!

Fast forward yet again and she's got those 858 photos on the site and has been in a handful of the site's clips and downloads. As expected, people enjoy seeing her updates and I love getting together with her to take new shots. Here is a complete look at her photos, posted and yet to be posted as of June 17, 2009:

As you can see, Wendy has also posed with two other models on the site. Both models, Ann and Nessa, are friends of Wendy and she got them to pose for me. Always nice when that happens!

I hope to keep bringing a steady influx of Wendy updates to the site. And if you're reading this Wendy, have a Happy Birthday you fellow June-r!

Wendy's soles have always been adorable to me, especially all the wrinkles along her arches.

Model Statuses 51-53: Wendy and Newcomers Jaylee & Briezzy

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

A lot of my emails and instant messages focus on questions concerning a particular model. People want to know if I have upcoming material of a favorite girl or if I'm still even shooting her. Fielding so many questions on a great deal of models, I've decided to do an update column over a few weeks talking about all the models on the site. This is the last of those columns covering:


Last Update: Pastels
Future Status: Certain

Wendy has been regularly posing for me over the last few years. I recently met up with her and shot two sets that are not yet posted. I also have an older set remaining that smelly feet fans and fans of blue toenails with surely love. This month I also have plans to meet up with Wendy yet again and I am hoping that the weather is nice and we can get in a couple of sets outdoors. 

Jaylee Austin

Last Update: Cheesecake
Future Status: Certain

A few days ago I met with Layla who told me she had her younger sister coming by to pose as well. It was the first time I had met Jaylee and I had a blast shooting her. I shot a few sets of Jaylee alone and also with Layla. Those will be posted in the coming months. With spring upon us I really hope to get Jaylee back in front of the camera soon. 

Briezzy Lane

Last Update: Hotel Tabletop
Future Status: Certain

Only two days after I shot Jaylee for the first time I met Briezzy when she and Jordana came down to do a shoot. I was impressed with her deep arches and very long toes. She told me recently that she really enjoyed posing for me and hopes to do so again soon.

This concludes the six part column series on all the current sole mates on Soles of Silk. When the series began there were 51 total models, but I added in Jaylee and Briezzy before it concluded. Within the month it appears that an 18 year old friend of mine will make her debut on the site as well. She should be posing with Kelsey. 

I also have some who have said they would pose in the past that I have to look into getting on here. I hope this column was insightful in determining whether some of your favorite models will be returning as many of you like to know certain model's status. Check back each week. Who knows, maybe we'll have a surprise return?

Model Statuses 41-50: Natalie - Tiffany

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

A lot of my emails and instant messages focus on questions concerning a particular model. People want to know if I have upcoming material of a favorite girl or if I'm still even shooting her. Fielding so many questions on a great deal of models, I've decided to do an update column over the next few weeks talking about all the models on the site. Here is the fifth of those columns:

Last Update: Shoe Swap w/ Bethany
Future Status: Doubtful

If I would have wrote this column last year Natalie's future status would have been possible or certain. But I'm not writing this a year ago, I'm writing it today. Today I can't even get a response from the contact methods I have. I'm hoping that when I get with Bethany to do some more photos I can ask her to see why Natalie hasn't been answering me about doing more photos. I'd really like her to do some more shots. 


Last Update: Tailgating w/ Wendy
Future Status: Possible

Thus far I've only had the one shoot with Nessa (above, right). That set was last year's Ravens themed set. with Nessa and Wendy. I only had time to do one set that day, otherwise I would have had Nessa do a few then. I just recently met with Wendy for more photos and have plans to do so again next month. I'll be sure to see if she knows what Nessa is up to. 

Paige Noelle
Last Update: Candles
Future Status: Possible

Paige Noelle is another model who has only posed for one set so far. A couple of days after I began this column I ran into Paige going to the bank, on my way to do a photo set with Mindee. Paige brought up getting together to do some more photos, which made me happy. We dated for a few months years ago and she hated her feet and wasn't too crazy about the fetish either. After I posted her first set, people sent me quite a few emails asking how she could find her feet to be ugly. I told them I had no clue and made sure to send her the email compliments to prove her wrong. Maybe it worked? 

Last Update: Amusement Park Outtakes
Future Status: Doubtful

Early on, Precious was one of the regular models on Soles of Silk. She had done some regular modeling when she was in her teens and was no stranger to the camera when I asked her to pose. I always enjoyed having her in front of my camera, but she has always been someone who is hard to stay in touch with. After multiple changes to email addresses and such, I no longer have a means of contact. I am hoping to run into her to see if she'd be interested in getting back here on the site. If anything comes about, I'll be sure to let everyone know. 

Sara Swirls

Last Update: Sleepwear on the Couch
Future Status: Possible

Around Christmas in 2008, I caught up with Sara Swirls when she was in the area doing some videos for her own site. It had been quite a while since we had met up. She's been quite busy with life and her own site and we had not been in touch. When we finally got together months ago, we talked about her doing some more photos, but we haven't set any dates to do so. I am hoping we don't become strangers again for a long time as her soft size 8's are always a hit when they're posted. 

Last Update: Stream Feet
Future Status: Certain

Although I don't get to shoot Shayna on a regular basis, she and I have always managed to get together here and there to get in some photos. With the warm weather on the horizon, I am hoping that I might be able to speed up our time between shoots over the spring and summer so that we can all enjoy her and her feet on a more regular basis. 

Sue Lovely

Last Update: Parking Garage at Night
Future Status: Possible

The last time I shot Sue Lovely was before the site's launch. We met and did a number of sets, which I was able to use over the site's initial updates. Although we've managed to chat here and there online, we have yet to meet back up. Recently we discussed getting together again this spring/summer, so I am hoping to finally get those tiny Asian feet back on the site. 

Last Update: Foot Fun w/ Abby
Future Status: Doubtful

When Abby told me about her friend Taylor wanting to shoot I was game. When I saw Taylor for the first time, I was very game. I thought Taylor was quite the catch and it didn't take long for everyone here to take to her either. Up until last year I was in contact with Taylor and we had discussed getting together for some more shoots. It was also around that time that she began talking to someone and I lost touch with her. I've seen her a couple of times, but was unable to really chat. If I see her when I can talk, I'll ask her if she'd be game again. 


Last Update: Cupcakes w/ Abby
Future Status: Doubtful

Tiff is another model who came to me through Abby. I also knew Tiff's boyfriend, but had never really hung out with him when his girlfriend was around. Abby had and showed her, Tiff, the site. Since this time, neither of us have had much contact with Tiff, so I can't really say if she'd be up for posing again. If I am able to get in touch with her, I'll see what she thinks about it. I'd really like to get her back, but only time will tell. 

Last Update: Outdoor Shopping Center
Future Status: Doubtful 

Tiffany was someone I met through the same source as Danaya. Like Danaya, I've lost contact with Tiffany and am not sure how to get in touch with her. If I am able to find a means to contact her, I'll be sure to see what she's up to and if she wants to pose again.

Come back next week when I talk about the three remaining models on the site.
