So Glad Cierra is Back!

Cierra's big return set on Soles of Silk was published this week.

I did something this week that I've done numerous times since I opened Soles of Silk. When I did it this time, however, it felt just a little bit different - a little more... special!

If you haven't been to the site since the Wednesday, June 24 update, or haven't been frequenting the site's Twitter (@SolesofSilk) or Instagram (@SolesofSilk), then you might not have heard the amazing news. Cierra is back!

Although it was a week and a half ago when I shot three amazing solo sets of Cierra and then an impromptu set of her with Mindee, actually adding her set the site this week made it feel real! For far too long one of my site's most dependable, fun loving, and in all honesty, cutest models, has been absent. During that entire span, you wouldn't believe how many emails, forum posts, tweets, or Instagram comments I had asking about her whereabouts. And although I won't go into all the reasons why she's missed all this time, let's just say, she had a lot on her plate!

With Cierra's return I wanted to mark the occasion and dedicate a blog to her and all that she's done for the site since 2004. Sometimes you just have to commend someone for a job well done. This just feels extra special because I consider her a friend and someone, like I said above, has gone though a lot recently. This one is for you Cierra. You deserve it and I'm so glad to have you back!

One of the original three sets I shot of Cierra before Soles of Silk was online.

Back Before there was a Soles of Silk

In 2004 I decided it was time to get back to doing something I loved a few years prior - running a foot fetish website. I used to have a free site named, The 10 Little Piggies, as many of you know. Well, when I set off to start this adventure that is still going 11 years later, Cierra was one of the first to agree to be a part of it. She was barely old enough to pose at the time and our first shoots were super simple.

Cierra and I went to a waterfront park and we did a set on a Jetty (Sample 01 / Sample 02), an old Wooden Bridge (Sample 01 / Sample 02), and then we finished up on a Picnic Table (Sample 01 / Sample 02). Cierra wore the same outfit in all three sets because I never even told her to bring a change of clothes - like I do now. Things were much simpler then, that's for sure.

Cierra had a very "teasing" feature set on Wu's Feet Links in 2009.

The Next Few Years

Cierra would go on to do a few more sets right after the site debuted, but once 2006 came around, she became a regular in front of my camera. Except for Madison, who was the site's most photographed model for the longest time, Cierra would was always one of my most dependable over those early years. Eventually Madison dropped off, but Cierra never did. Not yet...

As the years went by Cierra and I would go on to shoot so many amazing sets for the site. She had plenty memorable solo sets as well as team-ups with Mindee, Kimmie, and Jessie. Then in 2009 she did the Wu's Feet Links Feature set titled, "Foot & Size Tease." Although Cierra was already popular at the time, that feature set introduced her to many new fans and they never had to wait long to see more of her either.

From 2004-10 Cierra would pose for 33 sets and become the first model to join the 2K Club (2,000 photos). It took me until July 18 of 2012, however, to get them all online. Once I noticed that Cierra was becoming busy with life and not shooting as much, I began to publish the sets at a slower pace. I never had a problem putting her up on a regular basis before then because I always knew another shoot was right around the corner. After 2010, that wasn't the case.

Even with Cierra's absence, she'd remain the site's most photographed model until Mindee passed her in 2014. Cierra is still the site's second most photographed model and along with Mindee, make up the only two models in the 2K Club at this time.

Although Cierra's photo count slowly began to slow down after 2010, there is no denying everything she had ever done to that point was top notch. At the end of 2014, in celebration of the site's 10 year anniversary, I did a series of blogs, here on the Soles of Silk Blog, naming my favorite sets from each year the site has been online. Cierra was featured often throughout the series. Here is a break down:

Cierra was even able to pose with Mindee for her big return.

Cierra's Big Return

So here we are in June of 2015, a few weeks after my birthday and talk about a present! I was finally able to get Cierra back in front of the camera after her five year hiatus. She was just as eager to return, saying as much in the Return to Soles of Silk interview that was also published this week.

"Do you realize how happy I am to return?" she said. "I can't believe it's been five years! It's shocking to me, but I'm so happy to be back. I've been keeping you and all my fans waiting too long!"

Cierra also had this to say when it comes to wanting to take her title back as the site's most photographed model: "Psh! I'm in it to win it," she said. "[Mindee] has nothing on me. Ha! I'm determined to regain the top spot."

It's a good thing those two are friends, huh? In all seriousness, they really are. They just like trash talking each other like many friends do. That friendship is how they ended up posing together as part of Cierra's return. If you didn't get to check out the shoot blogs talking about how that amazing day went, be sure to check them out by clicking the links below:

One of the few selfies I've EVER taken! Can you blame me?

Now that Cierra is Back

Writing this blog, I still feel like I'm not expressing just how important Cierra has been to Soles of Silk over the years. I could go on and on about every single set she's done, but I've described each and every one of them on the site. If you want to see all the fun times we've had together for Soles of Silk, be sure to go through her galleries and read all the set descriptions. I can't do them all justice here.

All that being said, I want to close this out by addressing Cierra directly. Cierra, you've been nothing but amazing to me over the entire course of Soles of Silk's time online. I'm so glad you trusted me back in 2004 when you agreed to partake in what started out as a much smaller project, but has grown into what it is today. That success can be attributed to amazing models like yourself. 

I'm overjoyed that you're still posing for me and I've missed you dearly over the last five years. Thanks for finding the time in your busy life for these new sets and I hope we're able to find time on a regular basis to shoot many more!

Plus... Now that you reaquainted me with those super sweaty soles, and I'm talking "dripping wet" (your words), you know I'm going to be hooked! Don't keep you biggest fan waiting!

Sunday's Shoot: Part 1 - Cierra

It's hard to believe it's been five years...

It's hard to believe it's been five years since I last had Cierra's adorable little feet in front of my camera. The only reason I was still able to post new sets of hers all the way until 2012 was because we had shot so many prior. That's how it used to be. She and I would just shoot any chance we could get and I'd have countless sets of hers just waiting to go onto the site. It's also how she was able to become the first model on the site to break the 2,000 photo mark. Sadly, she has been sitting on 2,079 much longer than I would have liked. 

That changed today!

Today marked the day that Cierra made her return to Soles of Silk. If you've been paying any attention to the Soles of Silk Instagram (@SolesofSilk) and Twitter (@SolesofSilk) pages, you would have already been introduced to just what we were doing today - well, aside from both getting sunburns! Oh well, getting torched was totally worth having one of my original models, and most dependable models over the years, make her return.

Cierra and I have been talking for the last couple of weeks about shooting and she was able to ask Mindee to watch her kids for her. This plays an important role in a follow up blog, but more on that later.

I picked up Cierra from Mindee's house around 11 a.m. I did have to wait for Mindee to paint Cierra's toes for her, but that's something I sure didn't mind watching. I jokingly said that I wanted a photo of both of their feet together and that we had to plan for a day soon so I could shoot the both of them together again. The only time these two posed together was in Mindee's living room in a set published back in 2008 (Sample 01 / Sample 02). It's been too long.

Mindee said she'd let me take the picture when Cierra and I came back because she was going to paint her own toes in a few minutes. I told her okay and that I was holding her to that promise! With that, Cierra and I grabbed our stuff and headed to an elementary school I knew of that was sort of out of the way. I figured that'd help with not having people around.

Since I'm majorly in love with Cierra's super sweaty feet, I wanted to get in a set of her wearing some knee high socks. I took a photo of all the different pairs I have last night and Cierra picked out a pink pair and chose her outfit accordingly. We made our way over to some bleachers by a baseball diamond once we got to the school. From there, we began shooting Cierra's first of three solo sets. 

This is the first set Cierra has done since 2010.

The socks were so pink and I loved watching Cierra tug them off ever so slowly. They weren't coming off that easily either because her feet grew more and more damp as the set progressed. Her feet don't take long to get soaked, especially in the +90 degree weather we had today.

By the time Cierra had those socks off, I was getting photo after photo of her feet glistening in the sun - something that became the norm for the rest of the day. We shot a video clip of her taking the socks off yet again, and wrapped up the first set on the day.

After the set I showed Cierra all the love her photos were getting on Instagram. Looks like I wasn't the only one glad to have her back!

From there, we walked back to my car and decided the next set was going feature the Twizzlers I had picked up at the store earlier in the week. Cierra brought a simple outfit that I thought worked perfectly. We were going to shoot this one at a playground area not too far from the bleachers we were just on. Cierra made a quick change and we were on our way.

At first I was going to use one of the standard playground spots, but the school also had this school bus made from metal poles and platforms. Cierra thought it might look better and would be easier to pose there than on the slides and such we were looking at. We made the move and Cierra was 100 percent correct.

Look at all the sweat glistening on Cierra's feet.

I had Cierra's feet all over the place with Twizzlers snaked in between each one of those sweaty toes for the next 40 minutes or so. And speaking of sweaty, if you think it's only socks and shoes that make Cierra's feet sweat, take a good look at the sample photo for this set above. This isn't my favorite pose from the set, but I thought it perfectly captured the moistness of her feet! Just look at it. Click on it and enlarge it. You'll see it in all its glory and I love it! 

This set also had us wasting time because I kept reaching out and giving those feet a good, sweaty rub! And yeah, I did eat some of the Twizzlers that were soaking between those toes. Would you expect anything less from me? So I guess the time really wasn't wasted if I was treated those privileges.

By this point Cierra and I were a sweaty mess. Okay, Cierra was also a sweaty mess above the ankles too - just wanted to clarify. I decided it was time to take a quick drive to a convenience store for something to drink and to cool off for a few. Couldn't work Cierra too hard. After all, it's been five years since she last posed. The stress of foot modeling is real!

After the stop Cierra and I made our way to what I thought would be the final destination for a shoot on the day. It's a small waterfront area where no one ever seems to be. I had asked Cierra to bring some flats with her and I thought this quaint location would work perfectly for the set.

Cierra made another quick change of clothes in my car and we walked along the boardwalk to a few benches. At this time, the sun seemed to be at its worst. It was so hot and muggy, so I decided to do this one a little more quickly than the last two. That meant less social media photos, and sadly, less of me rubbing those moist feet.

I stuck Cierra up on the bench for the set as the boardwalk was blazing hot. I didn't want to be uncomfortable, so I sat my ass down there on a towel and shot all kinds of photos of her pulling the flats from her feet.

Once the set was finished, we made our way back to my car to sit in the air conditioning for a while. Cierra texted Mindee to tell her that we were wrapping up. That's when I asked Cierra if she had any plans once we got back to Mindee's place. She said no, so I asked her to see if Mindee was doing anything. Turned out, she was just sitting around waiting for us to return. That's when I got a brilliant idea!

"Tell her to grab some tennis shoes and do a set with you at the park by her house," I said to Cierra.

Cierra texted her that message and Mindee replied she'd shoot, but she wanted to just be barefoot. I wanted to shoot Cierra in her colorful tennis shoes she brought with her, however. I told Cierra to tell Mindee she'll be barefoot once her shoes come off and get ready.

Mindee agreed and even located some cute tennis shoes. I now had an impromptu shoot on my hands with the site's two most photographed models. But for more on how that one went, you'll have to check out the follow up blog to this one, "Sunday's Shoot - Cierra & Mindee."

Sunday's Shoot: Part 2 - Cierra & Mindee

So today was supposed to be the day that Cierra returned to the site after not having posed for me since 2010. Well, that sure happened and then some...

If you didn't get a chance, I suggest giving the previous blog titled, "Sunday's Shoot - Cierra" a read. That one covers getting Cierra back on the site after five years, but it also leads up to this one and a little about what your about to read came to be.

So there we were, Cierra and I, in my car, heading back from what I thought was going to be the final set on the day. But now I had a set to shoot with both Cierra and Mindee - a dream come true. Both of these girls have been great friends to me and are site originals. I have been wanting to shoot them together again for years now. Little did I know when I mentioned wanting to do that before Cierra and I went out to shoot, that I'd be doing it once she and I finished up.

After another stop at a convenience store for a drink, we made our way back to Mindee's house. We walked in and showed off Cierra's photos on the camera. After a few minutes, Mindee and Cierra went upstairs to figure out what they wanted to wear for their set together. I stayed downstairs for a few and just waited for the girls to finally figure out their attire.

When the girls came downstairs they looked all kinds of cute in their sporty attire. The girls weren't quite ready to shoot yet, though. Both were a little hungry, so Mindee made some quick sandwiches before we began shooting.

It was while the girls ate that Mindee looked out the window and saw that it had started raining. You could hear it hitting the roof and the road outside as it rained harder and harder over the next few minutes. I won't lie. My heart sank just a little at this point. Here I was, only minutes away from a set with both Mindee and Cierra and now it was raining earlier than the forecast was calling for. With that, we decided to wait and see if it would pass. 

In the meantime, I'm sat there thinking about how the girls were both sitting there in their sneakers, not wearing any socks. I knew Cierra would have sweaty feet, but I was keeping my fingers crossed that Mindee would too.

About 30 minutes later the rain began to subside and we walked to a near by park. Once again I'd shoot on some bleachers, but hey, it was last minute idea and as long as I had both these beauties posing together, I would have shot them anywhere.

The set began with the girls in their shoes, side by side. After a number of photos I decided to have Mindee pull of Cierra's shoes for her. That's when one of the strangest things happened. Mindee pulled off Cierra's left shoe and her foot had turned green! Her feet had been sweating so much inside her tennis shoes that the inside of them had somehow stained her feet. What made it even stranger was that the inside of her shoes were a teal blue. How they turned green, I don't know.

We all debated for a few minutes whether or not we should just leave them that way. Would people think that is cute that her feet got that way because of all the sweating? Mindee then took a quick peak at her feet to see if they turned pink. They didn't. That's when I said I thought Cierra's feet being green would ultimately be a distraction. Cierra ran back to the house and washed her feet off since the hand sanitizer I had in my backpack do the trick.

When Cierra returned we picked up where we had left off. Mindee pulled off Cierra's shoes, one at a time, until those feet were bare. Now mind you, Cierra had just returned from washing her feet and they were only in those shoes for about a minute since returning. When Mindee put her hands on Cierra's soles, she blurted out, "They're so sweaty! My fingers are going to be water logged."

Cierra pulls of Mindee's tennis shoes.

Cierra gave Mindee a sarcastic look and then it was time for the girls to switch. Now it was time for Cierra to pull off Mindee's shoes - which seemed a little bit tighter and tougher to pull off. 

It was cute watching Cierra tug on Mindee's shoes. Cierra has always had a knack for fun facial expressions and I could see her doing them even between the shots themselves as she attempted to tug off Mindee's shoes.

Once Mindee's heavenly size 8's were in full view, I was itching to have them side by side with Cierra's smaller feet. So that's what we did next and for the rest of the shoot. And talk about an amazing view! Both Cierra's and Mindee's feet alone are dreamy. Put them together and... yeah!

Before we wrapped up for the day I did a video of each girl removing the other's shoes. Not wanting to deprive all of you of seeing both their feet together in a clip, however, I had them do a third one sitting next to each other. I then got an idea and went over to my backpack. 

I grabbed a bottle of baby oil and told the girls to have fun. For the next few minutes I watched the girls' feet slip and slide all over each other's in what turned into a glistening, oily mess. The girls even left oily footprints all over the wooden bleachers when we packed up and left.

So what started out as a big day with the return of Cierra, ended even bigger when she was able to pose with her good friend, Mindee. This made for one happy photographer! I can't wait to shoot both of them again.
