Models I Miss - Bethany

"A foot massage can be both sensual and relaxing."
- Bethany: Introductory Interview

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

Unlike the two models who proceeded Bethany in this series, Madison and Carmen, I wasn't very close to Bethany. She was introduced to me through Molly and her husband back in 2006. One day later I was lucky enough to shoot for Soles of Silk. Sadly, however, we only shot a handful of times. That being said, every single one of those shoots was nothing but fun!

Bethany's first shoot came during a trip to Ocean City, Md. I had shot Molly on my first day of my mini-vacation and came away with some great photos. Later that night Molly, her husband, and I were all relaxing in the hot tub when Molly told Bethany and her boyfriend to stop by.

While they were on their way over, Molly and her husband told me how much of a sweetheart Bethany is. Molly then said she was going to try and see if she'd be want to shoot for me. I said I was game and waited for Bethany to come by.

When Bethany and her boyfriend showed up, I was in awe. She was adorable, but most of all, she was so soft spoken and down to earth. I kept my fingers crossed under the water that she'd be willing to pose for me when Molly popped the question.

Sitting here 10 years later, I don't remember how long into the conversation it was before Molly asked Bethany if my site was something she'd be willing to do, but it felt like forever. I'm sure it was only after a few minutes of her arrival, however. I was just on edge, hoping she would. And luckily for me, she thought it sounded fun.

We hung out for a few more hours that night before Bethany and her boyfriend left. Molly talked her into shooting the very next morning since I was only in town for a couple of days. I didn't expect the shoot to be so soon, but I sure wasn't complaining. After all, I had my camera with me since I had just shot Molly. Why not add a new model to the site while I was in town?

I woke up a little early the following morning and planned out what I intended to shoot. I didn't want to make her uncomfortable by shooting out on the boardwalk, or on a crowded beach, so I found a few ideas to do inside and outside the condo itself. From there, I waited for Bethany to come over.

Bethany first time ever on camera saw her smashing cakes under her feet.

For Bethany's first sets I decided to stay indoors. Her first set was one where I threw her right to the wolves by having her smash some yummy desserts under her pretty feet, as you can see above. The second set saw her in a school girl outfit, complete with stockings. And the final set of the day had us up on the roof of the condo and Bethany in a bikini, as seen in the photo at the top of this blog. This set was my favorite of the bunch and one that was a massive hit with fans of the site.

The next time I would get to shoot Bethany came later that same year and was the first time I ever shot four women at once. Bethany, Molly, Madison, and Lauryn all got into the Christmas spirit and so much fun ensued. As I'm sure any photographer can tell you, shooting four female friends at once is just crazy. It's easy to lose control of that situation pretty quickly!

Bethany (left) got her cousin, Natalie, to model for the site as well.

A number of months later I once again shot Bethany with another model - this time, her cousin, Natalie. Once again, I was out with Molly and her husband, this time at a Super Bowl party, and Bethany was also in attendance. Part way through the party, I saw a beautiful female come in and go right to Bethany. I later found out that her name was Natalie and she was Bethany's cousin. Of course Bethany and Molly introduced me and that's how this whole shoot came about. Sadly, however, we ran out of time and I was never able to shoot the solo set I had planned on doing with Bethany that same evening. I did get them together, however, and that set was so good!

That would be the last time I ever saw Bethany. We stayed in touch for a while back in the days of MySpace, but as the years went on, she moved out of state and I lost touch. Sadly, that's also been the case with most of the models mentioned in this entry of the Models I Miss series.

I had really hoped to have Bethany as a regular on my site. People adored her and her feet were just too cute. Molly and her husband really weren't kidding when they told me she was a sweetheart all those years ago. Sometimes good ones get away and that's just what happened with Bethany!

Monday's Shoot - Reagan

A week removed from my nine day vacation things are certainly back to normal when it comes to photo shoots. Today I planned to do a couple of sets with Reagan and things almost got rained out! If any of you had a chance to read my blog from June 27, 2016, "A Slow First Half of 2016," you know how the rain has steadily screwed with me all year. Well today, I still got in my photo sets!

Reagan and I have been talking about shooting for a few weeks. I had planned on shooting her during my vacation week, but she had very limited openings and I had a bunch of people to try to schedule. I asked her if she'd wait until a week after vacation as I had no plans whatsoever. She told me it would be perfect!

We met up this afternoon and made our way out to a botanical garden I used to go to when I attended art school some years ago. Although I've shot in this area before, the last time was back in August of 2013 when Ashlyn made her debut (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Ashlyn"). When Ashlyn and I had went, a good portion of the park was closed off for some renovations. I was curious to see what changes had been made. Reagan was all for the idea when I sent her some photos of the gardens from Google.

After a stop for lunch Reagan and I found our way to the park, although a different section of it than I had ever been to in the past. We lucked onto an area right off the road, next to a stream. Inside the stream was a large pond with a boardwalk and numerous benches. It wasn't where I was looking to go, but I liked it. Reagan also thought the area looked nice, so we decided to go ahead and use it.

After a rain stoppage, we continued the shoot.

We began the set and were only about 20 photos in when we saw the sky turn dark gray. A few small droplets of rain began to fall, so we made our way back to my car. Luckily the area we shot wasn't far from the parking lot at all. We were only in the car for about two minutes before the skies let loose - and I mean, let loose!

The center of the storm came and went in about 10 minutes, but the rain lingered on. Thankfully a few Pokemon Go stops were surrounding the parking lot, so the hour or so we spent in the car waiting for the skies to clear was productive! Yeah, I ended up giving that damn game a try and I am having fun with it! Yes, I suck!

Eventually the rain came to a halt. Reagan and I returned to where we left off, albeit with a soaked boardwalk and bench instead. Oh well, we lost so much time I decided not to reshoot the 20 photos we had already done and just move forward.

By the end of the set we had went all the way around the pond. Since the sun was behind massive cloud cover, we were able to shoot wherever we wanted. There were some great spots and I'm glad we mistakenly found this place. Sometimes you just luck out!

Following the set we decided to go ahead and head to the place I had intended to use. Within only a few minutes we were pulling into the correct parking lot. Things, however, looked quite different. The park had spent a lot of money to modernize things. There were new benches, water fountains, paved walkways and bridges, and so many other small touches that just made the park so much nicer than I remembered it. Funny thing is, it was great back then too. I knew we'd find some spots to use without issue.

We ended up having to dodge people playing Pokemon Go doing our second set.

Since these gardens have so many great spots I decided to go ahead and just bounce from location to location. I generally stick to just one area, but thought this might allow me a little bit of freedom. Plus, with the rain just having passed, no one was really in the park. Well, at least for a little while anyhow.

Reagan and I began shooting and after we shot in our third location, we began seeing more people coming by. No one bothered us, or stood in our photos, but the growing presence of people was quite noticeable. That's when we began to notice why. Pokemon Go! People were going from Pokestop to Pokestop and were doing so in large groups. There were so many people in certain places I didn't even bother to try to shoot there.

Eventually Reagan and I would find our way back to the fountains next to the parking lot. Since no one was in that area, we finished things up there. Of course, right as we wrapped things up, another group came by. Good timing!

All in all, it was a good day. Even with the rain, I had fun getting together with Reagan and hitting up a spot I used to go to back in my college days for my art classes - even though there was a sign that said something about no photography. Oops...

Wu's Feature History - Mindee (2016)

In 2013 I began a blog series here on the Soles of Silk Blog that took a look back through Soles of Silk's numerous Wu's Feet Links Feature Model galleries. Ever since that time, I have added a new entry to the series with each and every Wu's Feet Links feature model gallery I do. Here is 2016's entry, featuring Mindee.

Mindee easily deserved to be featured in a Wu's Feet Links set again.

2016 Feature: Ferris-t of Them All
Model: Mindee
Shoe Size: 8
Set URL: (100 images)

If any of you have read my most recent column on the Wu's Feet Links Columns Blog titled, "Wu's Feature Sets & Why They're Important to Me," you already know why I place so much importance on each and every Wu's Feet Links feature gallery I've ever done and still continue to do. This year's set, featuring Mindee, is no exception.

The July 2016 feature marks a first for Soles of Silk. Never before has one of my site models appeared in more than one feature set. This year's set, "The Ferris-t of Them All," changed that. In previous years I made it my mission to select a different model each and every set, including when Mindee did her first one, "Piggies & Power Girl," back in 2010.

My logic in always picking a new model was to take my site's most popular models, or ones who go out of their way for me, and showcase them as they deserve to be showcased. I like for them to get that spotlight and have a chance to shine. This year, however, I couldn't think of anyone more deserving than Mindee.

In recent years Mindee has been my go-to model. She's posed in so many amazing sets in recent years and has even gotten numerous friends and/or relatives to join the site's model roster. Four of those models will be making their debuts in succession starting next week. So if there is anyone who deserves to do another feature set in my eyes, Mindee is tops on that list - by a mile!

The decision to have Mindee be a feature model again in 2016 was one I made back in the summer of 2015, shortly after Kaycee's "Dockside Damsel" feature was published. Mindee and I were talking and I got the idea to have her be the site's first repeat model. Mindee was more than happy to do it, just as she is with each and every set we do.

For months now Mindee and I have tossed around possible shoot themes and ideas as it pertained to her upcoming feature. Little did we know, we wouldn't get to shoot it until about 10 days before it was set to be published. Things were kind of crazy for both of us this year. Add that to the horrible weather during the spring, and things just kept getting pushed back. So when my vacation was set for July 3-12, I knew we would find the time to finally make this happen.

In Mindee's first feature we didn't do much in the way of location. Instead, we focused on the theme, which was comics. With Mindee being busty and blonde, I immediately thought of one of my favorite comic heroines, Power Girl. She became the set's theme. This time, however, we decided to go more for location.

We made the trip down to an area called National Harbor here in Maryland, to shoot the 2016 feature. I had been wanting to use the waterfront location again for some new sets. I had left so much on the table from my only other visit to the location, namely the ferris wheel found at the end of the docks. When I told Mindee about the location, she loved it. I joked how she always finds herself in sets that feature amusement rides, having done three sets with roller coasters featured prominently.

Mindee's feature set would end up being the first of four sets we shot on the day. I won't get into all the details about the set here as I've already covered the shoot, along with the three others she did that day in the blog entry, "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 1 - Mindee." And if you're so inclined, keep reading through that series to see all the other sets Mindee was a part of that week - whether solo, or with the likes of Kelsey, Reese, Rein, Rilynn, and/or Noelle.

In closing, I just want to thank all of you for your support over the years. It's nice to chat with those of you who take the time to send me messages through various methods. Thanks for also showing Mindee all the love you have over the years. She really does love doing this! Whether it's the feedback, or my really long foot rubs, Mindee is barefoot at a moment's notice. I'm so very proud to have her represent Soles of Silk for a second time on Wu's Feet Links.

Talk about a breathtaking view! And the harbor wasn't bad either!

This concludes the Wu's Feet Links Feature History series for now. Next year an all new entry will be added to this series, and the model has already been determined for 2017's set. That model is none other than Alice.

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 7 - Mindee, Rilynn, & Noelle

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 6 - Felicia"

So I had just wrapped up with Felicia, doing three great sets. Now it was time to see if Mindee, Rilynn, and Noelle were free to do a three girl set we had wanted to do on Friday, but didn't have time for. As a matter of fact, the original plan was to try and do it on Saturday instead, but things just didn't work out. It's okay though, having that one day off allowed me to prep Mindee's Wu's Feet Links feature set that you can see previewed in Part 1 of this this Hot Feet Week blog series.

I was in luck! Mindee was home and Rilynn and Noelle said they could meet at Mindee's soon. I had to run home to grab the shoot prop real quick, so I made that quick detour.

Right after I arrived at Mindee's, Rilynn and Noelle pulled up outside. I pondered where to shoot the set, but Mindee had a suggestion. If her spot didn't work out, I had another idea or two in mind. My biggest worry, however, wasn't the location, but the overhead sun. It was about 6:30 p.m. and the sun was causing things to cast those long shadows. Maybe, just maybe, we'd luck out and find a spot in the shade and not have to worry about it. And, we did!

We didn't have time for the three girl set on Friday, but these ladies made time tonight.

Set 19 of the Week
6 Chalk Covered Soles

Mindee's suggestion was a basketball court behind an elementary school down the street. You see, the theme of the set was sidewalk chalk and the three girls were going to get their feet all kinds of colorful as they posed their six soles and 30 toes side-by-side. And contrary to what Mindee claimed, the ground wasn't too hard for me to lay on to get those great views of their pretty soles.

The set began with me drawing a large footprint on the ground. You probably won't even be able to see it though, but hey, it's there. From there I put the girls all in a line and had them pose their feet for some shots before the chalk came into play.

It didn't take long for the girls to begin using that chalk, however. Before I knew it, soles were covered, the spaces between their toes were dusty, and every so often, one of the girls would laugh out loud when the others would tickle them with chalk trailed down their soles.

By the end of this set, all six of their soles looked like abstract art. I'm sure they would have left chalky footprints across the court if I asked them to walk around for a bit. There was that much chalk on them.

Once we finished up Rilynn and Noelle had to be on their way. I thanked them once again for doing photos for me, especially squeezing in this last set. Both of them said it was their pleasure and had a good time. Mindee and I drove back to her place and we just talked about life for a while. 

While on the subject of Mindee, we spent so much time together this week and I couldn't have been happier with the results and the memories. With plans tomorrow, and work on Tuesday, this just might wrap up the Hot Feet Week series. If so, what a way to go out, huh? Three models - two of my four new ones, and my most photographed, all at once!

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 6 - Felicia

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 5 - Rilynn & Noelle w/ Mindee"

The saying goes, "Good things come to those who wait." Well, wait for these sets I have. And just when I thought I was going to get them on Tuesday, bad impending weather, and some issues caused the shoot to be pushed back until today (Sunday). It all paid off, however, as I'm happy to say that Felicia is finally back!

The last time I shot Felicia was back in 2014. She made a late debut in November of that year and then brought her twin sister, Bridgette aboard. The two of them posed for a Christmas and New Years set in back-to-back updates to finish off 2014 and bring in 2015. Then in April, I did a double update of Felicia to celebrate May 4th - as in "May the Fourth Be With You." Yeah, Felicia is a nerd too, especially when it comes to Star Wars.

Anyhow, Felicia and I weren't able to schedule a shoot last year due to this, that, and the other thing. Well, that wait is finally over. I was able to get in three great sets today - two of which, my favorite two of the day, were her idea.

Talk about a hot, um, uh, cold set with Felicia!

Set 16 of the Week
Melting Rainbow Pops

Our first set on the day took place at our mutual friends' house. They were kind enough to allow us access to their large back porch and yard. The theme was going to be melting popsicles - and believe me, they were going to melt today! While it wasn't the hottest day of this Hot Feet Week series, it was still in the mid to upper 80's.

At first, every single popsicle Felicia would pull out of the pack broke immediately. I'm not sure if we just got broken ones, or if they had melted that quickly and became frail. Oh well, we moved forward and tried our best.

About half way through the set the cold pops were coming out without any issue. Felicia stuck them between her feet, often crying out about just how cold they were. On top of that, her feet were turning every color imaginable. It was super cute.

Our friend directed us to this location when the first one didn't work out.

Set 17 of the Week
Water Balloons at the Beach

Once we finished up with the popsicles, it was time to move to the first of two sets that were Felicia's idea - water balloons. Our initial plan was to also shoot them in our friend's back yard. For some reason, however, once we went through the trouble of filling all the balloons with water and were finally ready to begin, about seven or so wasps came by and would not leave. I tried squirting them and wetting the ground, but to no avail. This is when one of our friends came outside for the save. He recommended this small little beach area back through the woods, one street over from his house. We decided to try our luck.

The area ended up being perfect. It was small, but the sun was facing the right direction and no one was around. We decided to get underway and the set couldn't have come out any better.

This set saw a lot of action shots of Felicia busting balloons and/or stomping on them under her feet. She's probably going to hate all of her expressions when I post the set, though. She got quite wet during those explosions and I caught all her grimaces right along with those bursting balloons.

My favorite shots from this set, however, were when her feet got pruned up. Between the tide coming up onto the beach and then the water balloons popping, Felicia's little toes got all kinds of water logged. A lot of you loved the shot that showed this I placed on the site's Instagram account too (@SolesofSilk).

Here's one many of you would like to catch while out looking!

Set 18 of the Week
Gotta Catch Them All

When we finally finished this set, it was on to do our last set of the day together. This set was one she asked about doing about an hour before our shoot - Pokemon. With this Pokemon craze going on right now, I thought it was perfect. As a matter of fact, just so it's timely, I'm most likely going to tease it for the site's next update. Generally I go with new models first and foremost, but with four new models going up in a row, I don't want to miss the relevancy of this set.

After dropping our friend off back at his place, Felicia and I made our way to a waterfront park area that I knew would provide numerous locations for her to "catch them all." Funny thing is, she even said there was one in the area when she pulled out her phone to look.

We ended up shooting in four different spots. Usually I stick to one general area for a set, but with this theme, looking all over just made sense. Felicia agreed. So we went from a pond, to a pier, to some benches, and then down onto the boardwalk. Felicia began the set in sneakers and thigh high socks. By the end, she was showing off those beautiful bare feet of hers. And between those arches she even managed to catch a pokeball, if that's even what you call it. Sorry, my nerdism never included Pokemon, so I apologize if used the wrong terminology there.

At this point Felicia and I wrapped up our day and I thanked her for three awesome sets. We both said we have to meet up again before long and do some more. We've talked about shooting at the ocean one day, so I'm still looking forward to that. In all honesty, however, I don't care where we shoot. I'm sure you don't care either, just as long as you, like me, get to see those pretty feet of hers on full display!

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 5 - Rilynn & Noelle (New Models) w/ Mindee

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 4 - Kelsey"

Back on Tuesday, when I was shooting Mindee for the first photos of this week, I had no plans at all for today (Friday). Mindee asked me if I wanted some, so I asked her what she had in mind. Her sister-in-law Rilynn, and their mutual friend, Noelle, she replied. They both are up for posing for the site, she said.

At that point I was stunned. Wednesday I was already adding two new models that Mindee was introducing me to for the first time in Reese and Rein, and now two more? You best bet I was taking her up on the offer. I added the shoot to my iPhone's calendar and Mindee told them to clear their days to shoot.

Fast forward to today and I will admit, things began to look grim. We decided to wait until the afternoon to begin shooting. With as hot as it has been this week in the morning and early afternoon hours, we thought it best to let things cool down a little. We decided 2:30 p.m. would probably work, but as that time drew near, the skies darkened and short rain showers began to fall.

Mindee and I began exchanging text messages about what to do. She said she could get the girls to shoot on Saturday instead, if I was open. I told her I was, but I kind of wanted to see what we could get in today. The forecast called for sporadic storms that would then clear up as the evening rolled in. Mindee said okay and we all met up at her place.

Once everyone was there we got into my car and made our way to a park to do our first three sets. It was great having Mindee along as she really coached up the girls on what I like and some tricks to posing. I jokingly said I should record all this and make a "How To" video for all new models featuring Mindee as the instructor. It's really not a bad idea...

Set 12 of the Week
Outdoor Stage

Rilynn decided to go first. We made our way over to this large stage area in the middle of the park. I'm guessing they put on plays or performances there. Today, however, Rilynn and her cute feet would be the feature presentation.

We began the set right in the mid-section of the stage, but a quarter of the way in, it began to rain. Seriously, I was so happy that there was a small overhead roof above all the large pillars at that point. It let us stay dry underneath and keep on shooting.

I loved the dark blue nail polish Rilynn wore on her toes. I'd find out later there was a reason for that, and the red Noelle wore on hers, but you'll have to wait until the two girl set at the conclusion of this blog to see why.

After a few stops due to the severity of the rain and it blowing through the area we were shooting, we finished up Rilynn's set. For the next few minutes I went ahead and loaded up a teaser image from the set to the site's Instagram (@SolesofSilk) because we had to wait for the rain to slow down to move to the spot Noelle would use for her debut.

Noelle stuck her feet up onto the banister of the porch during a light drizzle.

Set 13 of the Week
Wooden Stump Furniture

We decided on an old house's porch for Noelle's set. These historic houses are used for the park's functions, but have a certain charm to them. Also on the porch were several wooden stumps and small seats, also made from stumps. We'd have plenty to use for different poses.

The set began right at the top of the steps. From there, I decided to have Noelle kick off her flip flops and show off her curvy, slender feet on top of one of the wood stumps. This gave me some great angles to get up close and personal to her feet. After that, we played with putting her feet through the railings, onto the banister, and then some on the table/seating arrangement.

At this point what was left of the storm seemed to be passing. We finished things up and then debated on what to do next. With Mindee not having shot yet, I decided to do a solo one with her. I can never have too much Mindee in my photos - as you can probably tell by her being so prominent in this blog series.

I can never, ever, ever pass up a chance to shoot another set with Mindee.

Set 14 of the Week
By the Old Fireplaces

Mindee's set took place on some benches not too far from where Alice did a set last year. You might recognize the fireplace, if you weren't too fixated on her big size 11 feet in that set. I wouldn't blame you if that was the case. (see: Alice's sample image)

Anyhow, Mindee's set had her sitting up on the bench, after I wiped it off with a towel. The rain had stopped, but everything was soaked - even the grass I was kneeling in this entire set. Oh well, that's the price to pay for pictures of Mindee's adorable soft, and ever so wrinkly soles.

Fans of flip flops will be happy to know that every single set that happened up to this point saw the girls start off in flip flops. It's such a popular request, and all the girls showed up wearing them. I said, "Why not?" That was about to change, however.

At this point I asked the girls if they were good to shoot another set. They said they were. Earlier on I had said I was open on Saturday too, if the weather put a damper on today's shoot, or we wanted to space things out and not rush. All three told me they were good for another set, so that's what we did. And oh yeah, it looks like we're still going to shoot some more tomorrow too! Score!

We made our way back to my car and then proceeded to make a stop at a fast food restaurant on the way to our next location. The plan was to do a two model set featuring Rilynn and Noelle. They brought along some comic themed outfits that they really wanted to wear and they needed to change real quick. This is where their nail polish colors also came into play. Check out their outfits and socks in the sample below and it'll all make sense. If not, then you are not nerdy enough to understand.

The location I picked for this set was one I've used in the past, but not in the exact spot we shot. I put the girls up onto these small bleacher style seats as I knew it would allow them to interact well with one another. After the playfulness that ensued between Mindee and Kelsey yesterday in Part 3 of this blog series, I knew it was something I could replicate with these two friends.

All of you comic fans should love this set with Rilynn & Noelle together.

Set 15 of the Week
Comic Socks & Cute Feet

So there was Tony Sta..., I mean Noelle, and Steve Rog..., I mean Rilynn decked out in their comic shirts, and most importantly socks. Talk about cute. I know all you comic fans out there are going to appreciate this. I know I find it cute to see females wearing outfits with some nerd appeal - even if I did tease these two a little bit for it.

Without getting into too much detail here, these two friends had a blast pulling their shoes and socks off, both from their own feet, as well as each other's. I tried to get as much variation as I could between shoes, socks, and barefoot combos because I know some of you have said you love seeing footwear in different states of coming off. I also had the girls leave their socks and shoes in the foreground too. A lot of you have also stated that you love seeing the worn footwear left in the set. So yeah, I'm sure you'll find something you'll love about this one.

At the conclusion of this set it was time to call it a day. We all went out to dinner afterward and looked at the forecast for Saturday. It looks like we're going to try to get together around 2:30 p.m. again and see what else we can do. The main priority - a three girl set featuring them all in the same set. We have a theme for it and everything. It should be fun! Be sure to come back to the blog tomorrow, as well as the site's Instagram and Twitter accounts (@SolesofSilk) for previews and details about what ensues.

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 4 - Kelsey

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 3 - Mindee & Kelsey"

When I planned out some of my shoots for this week Kelsey grabbed Thursday, saying it was her best option to shoot. When Mindee also said she was open on Thursday, that's when I decided to have Mindee join in for a set. The original plan was to shoot Kelsey's solo sets first and then let Mindee know when we were done and where to meet us. Due to Mindee's schedule, however, we decided to do the two girl set to start the day, as seen in this series' previous entry.

The reason I decided to make this shoot its own entry to the Hot Feet Week series was the fact that Kelsey and I went on our own separate way after the shoot with Mindee. This was originally Kelsey's day, so I wanted to give her the spotlight here in Part 4. Much like Mindee, she's done so much for me over the years and deserves it.

The location I decided to use for Kelsey's set, a nature preserve, wasn't too far from where her and Mindee just finished up. I thought if we stayed close, shot quick, then maybe, just maybe, we'd get in two sets. That didn't happen, however, due to time restraints and how muggy the location ended up being. From my experiences yesterday shooting Mindee, Reese, and Rein, I thought it best not to force more photos when the weather is so sweltering hot. Quality over quantity!

As Kelsey and I left our cars and made our way to the wooded trail, I debated in my head which the spots in the preserve to use. I ultimately decided to go to the area featuring several benches - as long as no one was out there already. Luckily it was clear. Seriously, no one was out today. It was just that hot!

I love shooting Kelsey so much. I really need to get her in front of the camera more often.

Set 11 of the Week
Muggy Marsh

I directed Kelsey to the bench I knew would give the best lighting for the set. The sun was still behind the massive cloud cover, so I had room to play if I wanted to change things up. With Kelsey now in place, I began the 11th set this week.

Just like an hour before, Kelsey was striking pose after pose with her tiny feet. I complimented her on that as it was allowing us to shoot faster than when I have to direct each pose. Like me, I'm sure Kelsey was also wanting to work quickly to avoid sweating to death. Oddly, this location was so much more muggy than the ball fields we had just left. I'm not sure if it was because of all the nearby trees blocking the breeze, but I figured it would be nicer since we were right on the river. Guess I was wrong.

Once we finished up this set we made our way back to our cars. We talked for a bit and I said it was probably best that we try to shoot again soon. Hopefully the next time won't be as hot and we can see if we can do multiple sets. She agreed. When I mentioned that I'm without plans on Saturday, she told me she'd see if she had any free time. So hey, Kelsey just might get another entry here during the 2016 Edition of Hot Feet Week. I'm not complaining! I love those super soft feet of hers - always have, always will!

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 3 - Mindee & Kelsey

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 2 - Reese & Rein w/ Mindee"

Yesterday I was able to land two new models onto the site, Reese and Rein. Both girls were introduced to me through Mindee. As excited as I was to photograph those two, and then do a three girls set that featured them with Mindee, I was also just as excited for the duo set I had planned to do today. That set would be Mindee and Kelsey

This is set is something the three of us have talked about doing for some time now. I was glad that it was finally happening. Mindee even made mention of Kelsey as someone she'd like to shoot with years ago in her Modeling Interview on Soles of Silk.

This set finally came about when I was initially scheduling people to shoot for this week off. Kelsey told me that Thursday would be her best day to shoot. I penciled her in and planned on doing a set or two with her. When Mindee told me she was free that same day, I got the idea to finally make this pairing happen.

Initially the plan was to shoot my sets with Kelsey and then have Mindee meet up with us. Things worked out better, however, to do the duo set first. So that's what we did.

I wasn't initially sure what theme to do, if any for this set. I wanted something simple, yet fun. I looked into my bag of props and footwear and found some neon colored socks. They'd be perfect. Based on that choice, I made the call to shoot this one by some ball fields. Luckily for us, it has been so hot that no one was out using them.

Talk about a pairing I've wanted to do for years! Mindee & Kelsey was a blast to shoot.

Set 10 of the Week
Bright Neon Socks

Mindee arrived at the park first, followed by myself. While waiting for Kelsey, we looked around the area and figured out what location we'd use. Mindee is the one who picked the spot as she thought the football field would be the most appealing. I agreed.

Once Kelsey arrived, we all made our way over to a picnic bench that was right by the field. It was facing the right direction, but today the sun was behind massive cloud cover. Wish this had been the case for the last two days, but I digress. In all honesty though, it was the most comfortable it has been to shoot all week.

The girls sat themselves up on the table and pulled on the socks. When they were both ready I raised my camera and began to shoot this highly anticipated pairing. Seriously, both these models have been shooting for me for years. I consider both of them to be great friends and I was glad to finally get them together. Plus, they're both aces at giving me a hard time and throwing some teasing jabs my way. It's part of why I love them both so much.

After a handful of photos the girls began removing those socks. I loved the slow sock strip each one of them did on their own legs/feet, and then later, on the other's. These two were certainly having a lot of fun!

I was pretty much on autopilot in this set. With the experience both girls brought to this set, I just took the photos and they did all the poses. If I was telling them to do something, it was because I had more than enough shots in the pose they were currently in. Talk about easy mode!

When this set came to its conclusion I made sure to give the girls a small little two girl foot rub. I've rubbed each one of their feet too many times to count, so getting them together was a bucket list item I can now proudly say I accomplished. Sadly, however, it was time to say goodbye to Mindee for the evening. No worries, though. I still had Kelsey and those plump little piggies of hers to shoot afterward.

Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 2 - Reese & Rein (New Models) w/ Mindee

...Continued from "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 1 - Mindee"

Typically a feel good ending to a story happens, well, at the end. As far as Hot Feet Week 2016 is concerned, however, the biggest feel good moment might have happened here in the second part. What started a great, albeit hot day, with two new models making their debut, along with both of those models posing with Mindee, was practically undone by the end of the night! Until something amazing happened...

Last night's upset tweet.

Some of you might have saw my tweet last night on the Soles of Silk Twitter account (@SolesofSilk), shown above. After shooting two solo sets with Reese, and a set with Reese, fellow new model Rein, and Mindee all together, my camera card was filled. I switched cards, like I normally do, and left the filled card in my camera bag. About an hour later I ended up taking the card back out during a lunch break between sets so the girls could look at their photos. From there, the card went into my pocket, which I forgot about. That was until I went looking for it yesterday evening when it was time to write this blog. It was nowhere to be found. I looked all over my computer desk, in my camera bag, my backpack that I take along for shoots, in my car, in my pockets, and even in the pool outside as I jumped in for a little bit when I got home. No luck!

This is the point where I sent Mindee and very upset text. I figured I dropped it somewhere. I decided to go back to the locations we shot following our lunch break and look around. The only problem, it was going on 9:00 p.m. and was getting dark. She offered to come help, but I said I got it and was on my way. She then said she'd go look in the morning.

I rushed out the door and went to the two parks where I shot the final two sets of the day with Rein, on my second SD card. Maybe it had fallen out in one of those two areas. Since I pulled my phone out a few times to do some photos for Instagram (@SolesofSilk), it was my best bet.

Well, I looked all around both locations and didn't find anything. I went back home and then decided to grab a high powered flashlight and go back to where we ate lunch and look in that parking lot. I didn't want any street sweepers to come by. Again, no luck. I even called the store as there were a few employees still inside cleaning. They didn't find it or have it turned in. Hope was waning.

From there I went across the street to a store we stopped in briefly and looked in that parking lot. Once again, nope. That store was closed, so I couldn't call them to see if someone had turned it in.

At this point I was ready to give up, but I decided to give the two parks one last check on the way home. This flashlight would be much better than the lighting and phone/camera flashlight I used the first time. I looked in all the places where we shot and where we walked. I didn't see it. I even checked the parking lot where we parked for Rein's first set, which was at a post office. Nothing!

I sent Mindee a text and told her not to bother looking in the morning. The card was gone and it would be a loss of time and money. Mindee said, "Time yes, money, no. We will reshoot them."

Mindee is that kind of person, but I wouldn't expect them to do that all over again for free. It was my own fault. That's just Mindee's mentality and our friendship coming through. In the grand scheme of things, however, it wouldn't matter anyhow.

Mindee & her husband found the card the next morning.

This morning Mindee tried calling me before sending me a text. I was just waking up from tossing and turning all night over this and I see the photo you see above. Mindee and her husband went looking for it anyhow and found it! It ended up being at the post office, the same one I checked last night. I was beyond stunned and so damn happy! I promised to take them both to dinner one night, on me! 

So now that you've read the horror story with the happy ending, you're probably wanting to see how the shoots went and get a little backstory about them, huh? Well, I can't blame you there. Let's refocus this entry onto what this series is all about - the hot feet!

The day started out with Reese making her debut. Reese had some prior engagements to tend to in the afternoon, so I decided to get all the sets with her done first. I had wanted to shoot a solo set of Mindee while Reese and fellow new model, Rein watched so they would see what it is like to shoot. Oh well, Reese got to be thrown to the wolves because I didn't want to miss out on camera time with a new model.

Set 5 of the Week
Waterfront Park Bench

I decided to keep Reese's first set simple. We stopped at a waterfront area I've used in the past, but one that never seems to be populated. Once again, that turned out to be the case as only a small group came by and were gone before we knew it.

Reese's outfit was one I really liked, especially the shoes. As a foot fetishist, however, I was more looking forward to photographing her taking them off to reveal her size 8.5 feet for the first time. It didn't take long for that to happen either.

I'll have to say my fondest memory from this first set was learning that Reese can't spread her toes. I'm sorry to all you spread toe lovers out there, but it's true. She told me before we shot, back at Mindee's place, but I figured she was just kidding. Nope. Oh well, we joked that we'd have to do a set of her painting her nails with some toe spreaders one day.

Once this set was wrapped up we all went back to our cars for a break. I thought it was hot on Tuesday when Mindee shot four sets to kick off Hot Feet Week, but Wednesday was even worse (see blog: "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 1 - Mindee").

Fast forward a few minutes and I decided to go ahead and do the three girl set next. There was an area down the walkway from the first set where I could have all three girls pose side-by-side with plenty of space. The theme - water guns.

I knew I wanted to get all three of the girls together in a set. This theme seemed perfect.

Set 6 of the Week
Three Girls, Six Water Guns

This set, as expected, was a very playful one. Reese was doing her second set, but Rein was posing for her first one. They both did great for essentially being newbies to this whole thing. Luckily, I had Mindee there to help direct some fun shots and tell the girls some ways to pose their feet.

One thing that was most evident during this set was how happy the girls were to have the water guns. We were literally baking out in the sun for this one. They constantly shot each other and themselves to try to keep cool. I, on the other hand, had a towel nearby so I could keep wiping the sweat off my face. I was already sunburned from the previous day with Mindee, so it was getting a little miserable. Still, we soldiered on and finished things up.

With a little less than an hour left for Reese I asked her to do another solo set real quick. She changed outfits and I promised her we'd shoot as fast as we can - which isn't always easy for someone so new to this. We made it work, however.

With limited time, Reese did her final set on the day before heading out.

Set 7 of the Week
Overlook Lounge Chairs

Reese's third set was shot on an overlook, featuring two lounge chairs. I had Reese kick her feet up and pull her sandals off one at a time. From there, I just shot photo after photo of her bare feet in all different positions. I told her to just move them around into whatever position came to mind. It helped with the pace because we were both in need of a break. Mindee and Rein had went back to the cars to get out of the heat. Reese and I were still out there sizzling away.

Once the third set of the day was finished, it was time to say goodbye to Reese. She went on her way and Mindee, Rein, and I all decided a lunch break was in order.

For the sake of the length of this already long blog entry, I won't go into details about lunch or hitting up a store afterward. Instead, let's jump ahead to a little over an hour afterward when Rein did her first solo set.

On our way to lunch we spotted some bleacher seats by an airport and thought it might make for a good background for Rein's set. She liked the idea and that's where we found ourselves going once our stomachs settled.

After a lunch break, it was time for Rein to pose for her first ever solo set.

Set 8 of the Week
Airport Field

Rein began the set on a wooden bench in her flip flops. I always tell my debuting models to bring along some footwear for their first sets. It always helps give them something to do as they see what things are like. Just like Reese's blue flats in her first set, however, Rein's didn't stay on too long either.

During this set we moved around a few times. I also found myself getting into some odd positions to shoot some lower angle shots of Rein's cute little size 6 feet. This is also where I figured my camera card had fallen out. As you already read, it was following this shoot, probably when I uploaded a teaser shot to Instagram. I'm thinking it fell out when I pulled my phone from my pocket.

With Rein's first set done and in the books, we decided to go and do a second solo set at a park down the street from our current location. The sun had tucked behind some clouds for the majority of the set we had just done, which made things a whole heck of a lot cooler. I figured it would be nice to get that second set, especially with it being a little more comfortable outside now. Boy, did that not last!

When we arrived at the park for the final set, it seemed like as soon as we got out of the car, the cloud cover vanished and it was back to a blistering sun overhead. Sweat was pouring off all of us and poor Mindee wasn't feeling good. Just like with Reese's last set, I told Rein we'd shoot this one quickly.

The sun was cooking us, but Rein still managed to do her second solo set of the day.

Set 9 of the Week
Silver Bench in the Sun

I had Rein go barefoot in this one and stick her feet in any and every position we could do. The sun was so strong we had to pretty much do all the poses in one direction. That's why I love cloudy days so much more. The sun disperses through clouds and it gives you less restrictions. Oh well, once again, we made things work.

When this set wrapped up, things were done for the day. We were all just to beat to do anything else. Had things not been so hot, and had Reese not had plans that afternoon, my original idea was to also shoot Mindee with both Reese and Rein in two girl sets, and then have Reese and Rein do a two girl set together. Oh well, it looks like I have something to look forward to shooting in the future! And speaking of the future, it's time to go meet up with Kelsey and Mindee parts 3 and 4 in the Hot Feet Week series.
