My Favorite Mindee Sets of 2016

While writing the December 26, 2016 blog titled, "My Favorite Photo Sets of 2016," I came up with idea to do a spin-off blog that counted down my favorite sets featuring Mindee from 2016. Since I did a Monthly Mindee update this year, she had a ton of material to chose from. I think it's only fitting to dedicate an entire blog to her and all just the 13 sets she did throughout 2016. And in this blog, I will also be counting her Wu's Feet Links feature set, "The Ferris-t of them All."

Before I begin, I must say that there isn't a bad set in this bunch. I love all of them. Ranking them was not easy! All kinds of factors went into why I placed each set where I did. Ask me to do this set again at some point, I will honestly say that there is a good chance that I might order them differently. Anyhow, onto the list:

13. Rainy Day Lifeguard Stand
Published Date: November 30, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 65

One of the more recent updates of Mindee's, this set was a memorable because of the story behind it. It was raining before we got to the park and the forecast was calling for a massive storm to roll through. We decided to chance it and came away with a quick set on top of a lifeguard stand and a row boat. We got in some good angles, but the lighting wasn't as good as many of the other sets you'll find below. Nevertheless, I still like how this set turned out. We did try a second set and literally got drenched for our ambition!

12. Funnel Cake Mix
Published Date: July 13, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 84

This is one of the more unique sets I've ever done. Obviously this this far from the first time I've done a food product in a set, and it isn't the first time Mindee got her feet all gooey either. What made this set extra interesting was the fact that the funnel cake mix we used was first poured into her shoes, and then she stuck her feet into them. When asked how that felt, Mindee replied, "To be honest, it was kind of gross! The water used to mix it was warm, so if I had to describe it, I'd say, 'warm and gushy.' My feet were suctioning inside the shoes."

It was really hard to put this set at number 12 and is probably the one I debated the most in my head. We got a lot of great poses and the theme is like no other, but in the long run the shoes and funnel cake mix do cover up what many of us love the most - Mindee's flawless feet!

11. Cleveland Waterfront
Published Date: May 18, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 65

The photo above is one I had as my computer's wallpaper for months. So how can the set be placed at number 11? Well, it's pretty much because I just loved so many of the other sets and something had to be here. I loved the setting used for this set, although the bright sun did hinder some shots. Overall though, I have no complaints about this set and just might put this photo back as my wallpaper now that I'm thinking about it.

10. Muddy Boots
Published Date: February 17, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 74

For a set shot at the end of December, during a rare warm span of weather, this one was spontaneous and I love how well it came out. We didn't really have much of an idea going into this, so we just went with what we could think of. Mindee grabbed a flannel and her boots. She wore them without socks for a bit before getting to our destination, which made me look forward to this even more. Mindee really got me into boots this past year and when you look a little further down the list, you'll see another reason as to why.

9. River Street Garden
Published Date: December 28, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 73

The final set published to Soles of Silk in 2016 belonged to Mindee, and rightfully so. This set was shot during the first shoot of Hot Feet Week - 2016 and was the one that wrapped up a very hot, but very productive day. 

I let Mindee take it easy in this one, finding a quiet little spot along the river where she could lay back, kick her feet up, and just relax. And to make things even better, I gave her a foot rub for about an hour at the conclusion of this set. It didn't matter that numerous people walked by as I stuck my fingers between her soft toes. I wasn't embarrassed pampering her feet in public. They deserve it! And even if I was, I'm sure Mindee would have made me do it anyhow.

8. Supergirl Socks & Books
Published Date: April 20, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 89

I've always enjoyed including comic book themes into sets on Soles of Silk. Back in 2010 Mindee did a Wu's Feet Links feature set called, "Piggies & Power Girl" and it was a massive hit. For some time following that set, I aimed to also do one themed to Supergirl. Little did I know Mindee would also do that set years later. It makes total sense with Power Girl being Supergirl from another dimension and all. Okay, enough nerd talk. Mindee made this set a fun little one playing with a pair of Supergirl socks, all while reading a few graphic novels featuring Superman's female cousin. These sets always appeal to my nerdy side!

7. Boardwalk Boots
Published Date: September 28, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 79

Taking an afternoon off from work to do some photos with Mindee awhile back rewarded me with three great sets, two of which you see on this countdown. The last one is yet to be published, but will surely be a hit once it is.

Looking for a simple idea, Mindee grabbed a pair of boots and we were on our way. I found us a secluded spot on a boardwalk/overlook by a pond. With Mindee knowing full well how I love women not wearing socks with their sneakers, she didn't even ask me whether she should with these boots - she just didn't! Watching her pull them off really made me fall in love with that visual. Now I'm always looking to do some more sets with boots and no socks because of it.

This photo is the one which replaced the one number 11 on my computer's desktop as the wallpaper. It shows less of her feet than that one, but that is because I just love how teasing the pose is. Seeing her with her foot not yet all the way out of her boot is just amazing. Too bad it's not scratch and sniff...

6. Old Roller Coasters
Published Date: June 1, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 65 images

There is a reason why Mindee has been in three sets featuring roller coasters in her Soles of Silk modeling career. We both love riding them and have hit up countless parks either together, or with groups of friends. We're always looking to do more and even have plans to visit some in 2017. I can't wait!

This set was done in a small park that features the world's oldest roller coaster, although that's not the coaster you see in the image above. Although we didn't have as many coasters to chose from at this park as we have in her other two coaster sets, the fact that we got right up on the world's oldest made this set a classic in my eyes. Plus, there is just something about wood coasters that make for a great background.

5. Pink Over the Knee Socks
Published Date: October 26, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 103

I had never shot over the knee socks for the site before and then I did it twice within a month with Riley and then Mindee. Riley's set went up immediately, but Mindee's took a while with so many sets of hers to publish. Ultimately, this set was published at the end of October and is the one that put her into the 4K Club (4,000 photos). The bright colors and poses in this set just put it over the top for me. 

I couldn't stop shooting this set. Mindee did so many great poses, and had tons of fun stretching and wrapping those long socks every which way. If we weren't scheduled to meet up with Cierra for a two girl shoot afterward, we might have kept going.

4. Super Sweaty Soles w/ Cierra
Published Date: August 31, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 64 

Speaking of shooting with Cierra, this set, done on a different day from the one I spoke of above, was one that wasn't planned. However, sometimes that works out for the best and that was the case here. Our last minute decisions to shoot this one rewarded me with one heck of a set. 

Sneakers? Check! No socks? Check! Sweaty feet? Check! My two most photographed models? Check! Seriously, it's hard to outdo that checklist. If it wasn't for time restraints and me giving their damp, sweaty feet some massage time off and on throughout the shoot, it would have most certainly been a larger set.

3. The Ferris-t of Them All (Wu's Feet Links Feature)
Published Date: July 15, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 100

Up until 2016, no model had ever appeared in multiple feature sets on Wu's Feet Links representing Soles of Silk. In 2016 Mindee became the first. With all that she has done, and the countless sets she's been doing these last few years especially, she truly deserved that distinction.

This set also marked the first one shot during the 2016 Hot Feet Week back in July (see blog: "Hot Feet Week: 2016 Edition, Part 1 - Mindee"). It was done at National Harbor, just outside Washington, D.C. in front of a ferris wheel I've wanted use as a background. We had a fair amount of people walk by, but we didn't care. Mindee's feet are so gorgeous and we just kept on shooting this amazing set knowing people were looking at her soft foot bottoms as we did. Many of you expressed just how much you loved this set once it was published and we both appreciated reading all your kind remarks. 

2. Candy Cousins w/ Marcy
Published Date: February 17, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 137

Whenever Mindee and Marcy team up in a set, silliness is sure to ensue. The other thing that is a definite is an amazing set. Seriously, these two together in front of my camera always equals something special. That was the case with their Candy Canes set in 2010 and then their Soccer Goal set in 2014. And it was also the case with the M&M's themed set from this year.

On top of all the great photos that came out of this set, I couldn't tell you how many M&M's I grabbed from between these two girls' toes during the shoot. Mindee kept yelling at me and Marcy kept laughing. It was a good thing I had bought so many because we could have easily have run out. I guess I would have just had to have spent more time rubbing their feet, which I spent a good amount of time doing anyhow. 

1. Swirl Lollipops
Published Date: March 23, 2016

# of Photos in Set: 100

As I expressed in much detail on "My Favorite Sets of 2016" blog earlier this week, it was hard to place this set anywhere but number one. Mindee looked stunning! She always does, but there was just something about this set that gave it that extra "wow" factor. 

A lot of you were impressed too, and you even expressed it to me in emails, comments on social media, and in forum posts. You loved the stockings, the setting, how colorful the set was, and the little bit of size teasing that was involved between the small and large swirl lollipops scattered all over the bed. I loved it for all those same reasons. And I must say, rubbing her feet in these unique stockings sure was something vastly different than any stockings I've ever felt on a pair of feet. So yeah, that made this one memorable too.

What sets of Mindee's did you like the most here in 2016? I'd love to read which ones were your favorites in the comments below. Moving into 2017 you should fully expect to keep seeing regular updates with Mindee. You might even see another one of these countdown lists featuring just Mindee again next year. She has a lot of sets waiting to be published and we're bound to take many, many more. This gal totally deserves all the praise she gets from all of you and I'll never tire of having her in front of my camera.

Soles of Silk - 2016's Star Models

Last year I wrote the first ever, Star Models blog. In it, I named the three models on the site who modeled the most during 2015 (see blog: "Soles of Silk - 2015's Star Models"). Those models were: Alice, Kaycee, and Mindee. Well, now that 2016 is drawing to an end, I figured I'd go ahead and do a 2016 version and see just who were my star models for this year.

Overall, 2016 saw me shooting just a little bit less. The spring was nothing but rain and although I got off to an early start getting to shoot a couple of sets with Jasey Rae, I didn't get to shoot again until May when Mindee did her first sets of the year. All in all, I had 11 different models do shoots in 2016, four of which were brand new to the site. These models include: Alice, Felicia, Jasey Rae, Kaycee, Kelsey, Mindee, Noelle, Reagan, Reese, Rein, and Rilynn.

Of the 11 models listed above, Kelsey, Mindee, and Alice found themselves in front of my camera more than the others in 2016. Kelsey edged out Rilynn by just one set, earning her spot. As for Mindee and Alice, both models were also on last year's list with Mindee leading the way. This year, however, the two tied one another at 11 sets each. Never one to share the spotlight on Soles of Silk, Mindee hinted that she didn't want to tie. Oh well, the numbers are in for 2016. That just means that in 2017 Mindee will be hounding me to shoot even more. With Alice always willing to shoot, that could mean I find myself shooting both ladies even more. No complaints here! Of course, if I could get them together for a few sets... Wow!

Before talking about the three star models individually, I just want to mention that this blog is in no way geared to say that these are my "best" or "favorite" models. Nope. This is just a way to honor the ones who kept finding me a spot in their busy schedules to shoot pictures of their pretty feet. I honestly appreciate all the ladies above who modeled this year and would love to see any, or all of them, vying for these three spots in 2017. Now, onto 2016's Star Models:

I was happy to get to shoot with Kelsey more than usual in 2016.

2. Kelsey
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2016: 7

Earlier this year I told Kelsey that I wanted to shoot her on a more regular basis. Kelsey said to me that she'd love to, but sometimes it is just hard for her to find that time. I understood and know that family always comes first and Kelsey often has her hands full when it comes to that. Thankfully, however, Kelsey did find some more time than she's been able to in the past and that earned her a spot here on this year's Star Models listing.

From the moment Kelsey first walked past me in flip flops, I've been in love with her plump toes and super soft soles. We wasted no time in getting her on camera, just one day after turning 18 back in 2006. Yes, that means Kelsey has been doing this for almost 11 years now. Already a member of the 1K Club (1,000 photos), Kelsey is quickly moving toward joining the 2K Club (2,000 photos) with all of her new sets from this year. Two of those sets saw her team up with models I've always dreamed of - the first, Mindee and the second, Jasey Rae. Kelsey and Mindee was always a dream match up for me because it teamed up two of my longest tenured models, both of which love to tease me beyond belief. And then there was the plump toes match up of Kelsey with Jasey Rae... That just HAD to happen! And it honestly needs to keep happening!

I'm hoping to see Kelsey continue to shoot regularly as we move into 2017. She is always welcome to shoot and knows she can hit me up randomly if she ever finds herself with some free time. I would never pass up the opportunity to spend some time with her and those adorable, soft feet.

Mindee has been shooting regularly for me for years now.

1. (tied) Mindee
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2016: 11

This year has certainly been Mindee's year. Here she is tying Alice for the most photo sets shot in 2016, but that's far from her only accomplishment. This year saw Mindee join the 4K Club (4,000 photos), with 13 sets published, and represent Soles of Silk as the July 2016 Wu's Feet Links Feature Model in the set, "The Ferris-t of Them All." In all honesty, did you expect anything less?

From the first time I shot Mindee, I was in love with her adorable size 8 feet. Even though she wasn't crazy about them, I was and I was glad to have her modeling them for me. She did it only because I was her friend and she was doing me a favor, but over time she really began to enjoy it. You could probably say that since then, she's become a monster. She's always seeking more camera time, loves seeing her newest updates, never shies away from an interview, and she has even landed me numerous new models, including four this year. Those models include: Reese, Rein, Rilynn, and Noelle.

If it wasn't for Mindee, I don't know how well my site would be doing right now. She's been such an inspiration for me. She's found all over my site's design elements, banners, and even on all the video clip intros as of this year. My motto has been, "More Mindee is never a bad thing."

I can honestly say that I wouldn't be surprised to see Mindee once again on next year's Star Models listing. Our shoots have always been a great way for us to get out and have some fun times together. Whether it is just a set or two around town, or a mini-vacation with lots of sets, it's always a memorable time. I owe a lot to this special friend of mine and know Soles of Silk would not be what it is today without her.

Alice has been in front of my camera a lot since debuting last year.

1. (tied) Alice
Debuted: 2015
# of sets posed for in 2016: 11 

Alice debuted last year and found her way onto my Star Models Blog for 2015 with 11 sets that first year. Well, this year she matched that with 11 more. Never has any of my models in the site's 12 years online modeled for so many sets in such a short amount of time. She is quickly becoming one of the site's most photographed models. Once all of her unpublished photos are on the site, she will easily have joined the 1K Club (1,000 photos) and be on her way to becoming a member of the 2K Club (2,000 photos).

It goes without saying that Alice has really captured my heart when it comes to shoots. I have so much fun every time we go out and shoot. We are always looking for something fun, something creative, something adventurous, and as you can see above, even something a bit naughty! There have been times, like her most recent shoot (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Alice"), where I didn't even need to shoot, but I asked her to do one anyhow. I just adore her energy and creativity and welcome any camera time I can find with fun loving friend of mine.

In addition to all the sets Alice did in 2016, Alice was also featured in the January 2016 Wu's Feet Links Interview. With all the feedback that came from that interview, along with all the comments from her numerous photo shoots since her debut, I decided to ask her to represent Soles of Silk as the July 2017 Wu's Feet Links feature model. A weekly teaser has been ongoing here on the blog since August to tease that set as we shot it the same day as her "Eat Me" set above. To follow along, check out the blog titled, "Weekly Teaser - Alice's July 2017 Wu's Feet Links Feature."

The future is certainly bright for Alice and I, for one, am glad she walked those size 11 feet of hers my way and in front of my camera. Very glad...

My Favorite Photo Sets of 2016

With the last update of 2016 now in the books, it's time to take a look back at my favorite photo sets of the year on Soles of Silk. just like in previous years, this was no easy task. All of my models featured in 2016 really brought their A-game and did some sets that I was eager to share with you each and every week.

As a reminder, I do not include feature model galleries on this lists, so Mindee's "Ferris-t of Them All" set is not eligible. Don't worry though, Mindee always finds herself sprinkled throughout these lists. I'm sure this year will be no different.

Also, only sets that were published in 2016 are included. I shot a lot of amazing sets this year that are still waiting to make their way onto the site, but there are only so many weeks in a year. And believe me, you'll surely be seeing some of those sets on next year's Top 10 listing.

Now, onto my 10 favorite photo sets of 2016, a list that I changed several times before hitting the publish button. Man, these things can be so hard...

10. Pink Over the Knee Socks
Model(s): Mindee
Published Date: October 26, 2016

Didn't I tell you that Mindee would be sprinkled throughout this list? Having done the Monthly Mindee Update (see blog: "Monthly Mindee Updates?"), she sure gave me enough material to do a list made up entirely of just her sets. Hmm... Maybe I can write that up before the end of the year? Yeah, I think I will!

Anyhow, this set was the one that put Mindee into the 4K Club (4,000 photos) recently. What drew me to this set, other than the beautiful model with the ever so lovely size 8 feet, was the bright colors. The neon pink outfit, the bright blue sky, and the green grass all made this set one of the more vivid ones I've done. And those socks were awesome. I recently bought a couple more pairs to use in future sets.


9. Cookout Cutie
Model(s): Kaycee
Published Date: May 25, 2016

Kaycee is always up for a fun, creative idea. When we began brainstorming a cookout theme for a set, she was so excited. So was I. We faced a little bit of an issue when we first set out to shoot it, but we quickly rectified that and shot the amazing set shown above.

This set was one I shot, knowing it would be a while before I used it on the site. The plan from the start was to publish it for the Memorial Day 2016 update. With all the cookouts people attend, I figured it would be the perfect theme. The feedback that was sent to me confirmed that. People loved this set just as much as I did. Kaycee really had a blast doing it and it showed in all of the photos. Sets don't get much more fun to shoot that this one.


8. Super Sweaty Soles
Model(s): Mindee & Cierra
Published Date: August 31, 2016

Talk about a spontaneous set. I didn't even plan on shooting this one. Mindee was babysitting for Cierra so she could get in some new sets. When we were done shooting Cierra called Mindee to tell her we were on our way back to her place. That's when I got the idea to see if I could get them in a set together really quick. Mindee got her husband to watch the kids for a few minutes and I got the girls to go to a nearby park and show off their sweaty soles, side by side.

This wasn't the first time I got my site's two most photographed models in the same set together, but I can honestly say this is my favorite one of the bunch. I adore sweaty female feet fresh from sneakers, especially without socks. That is what I got to witness as these two tugged off each other's shoes on a sweltering hot day. It's a sight and experience I'll never forget.


7. Rainy Day Workout
Model(s): Riley
Published Date: February 24, 2016

Riley and I ran into a few days of scattered showers over a two day span where we got scheduled some shoots. With both of us really wanting to shoot, however, we made it happen and the workout themed set above was one I fell in love with immediately. The fact that I got all wet laying on the ground to shoot it was negated by how well this one came out.

In addition to the great colors found in this set, and the pretty little feet Riley was sticking out front and center, was the addition of her toes getting pruned up in the rain. She thought it was weird, but I loved it! I told her people were going to like it too and she just shook her head in wonder. And guess what? Almost immediately compliments about her pruned up toes came in over social media. I made sure to show her just how right I was.


6. Cinnaball Smash
Model(s): Jasey Rae
Published Date: June 15, 2016

I had ordered Jasey Rae a T-shirt online a while back that showed a large rooster and featured the word "Tease" underneath. She thought it was cute and we have a running gag about her love of denying me her adorable feet. It's just our little friendly fun thing and we decided to go ahead and play off of that.

Right before we shot this set the idea of picking up some cinnaballs from Taco Bell popped in my head. Seeing her smash them and the icing seep out would make for a fun addition. Jasey liked the idea too, especially since we hadn't done a food smashing set at that point.

I can honestly say that Jasey nailed this set. Not only did her pudgy toes look so darn cute here, but her emotion and fun loving personality was on point. This set was a blast to shoot and you can sure tell that Jasey was loving this one just as much as all of you did.


5. Gummi Dicks
Model(s): Alice
Published Date: October 12, 2016

Ever hear the term, "Go eat a bag of dicks?" Well, when I saw an actual bag of dicks, in gummy form, at the mall, I just had to buy them and think of a way to incorporate them into a set. When the fact hit me that they were tiny, I thought the best pairing would be to have them in a set with Alice's alluring size 11 feet. When I mentioned it to her and that we could turn it into a light size tease theme, she was all about it.

Before shooting this set I grabbed a ruler, a magnifying glass, and a pair of kids scissors from the store. I told her to have at it with whatever props she wanted to use. But when I saw her start snipping off the balls... Yeah, she sent a message loud and clear without saying a word. She's good like that!


4. BFFs
Model(s): Camille & Alice
Published Date: November 16, 2016

Hey, look! It's Alice again! Yup, back to back sets featuring my big footed friend, this time with our friend, with smaller feet, Camille. And if you're a fan of Alice, I have a strong feeling that she's going to be all over next year's Top 10 List!

Anyhow, this set was inspired by a pair of shirts I found while out shopping at the mall. I saw two shirts, both featuring "BFF" across the breast area. Underneath, however, were two different playful slogans pointing at the other's way. When I photographed the shirts and sent it to the girls, they both loved it and wanted to use them in one of their sets together.

With the pink and black shirts, I decided to grab some pink and black knee high socks to go along with this set. It made for a good addition for the simple fact that these two playfully grabbed at the other's socks and pulled them off each other's feet. A few sniffs before a handful of size comparison shots made this a favorite of many, including myself.


3. Candy Cousins
Model(s): Marcy & Mindee
Published Date: February 17, 2016

Another two girl set, and the second to feature Mindee. This time I finally got to publish a set that I've talked about for ages, even to many of you. This set would feature M&M's.

Now why have I been wanting to a set with M&M's so badly, you ask? Well, I had the cheesy idea some time ago that it would be awesome to have to models whose names begin with the letter "M" to be included in this set. That's when the idea blossomed into something even better when I realized I could pair up Mindee with either her cousin Marcy, or Mariah, or even both. With Mariah very busy and hard to get in touch with, it ended up being Mindee with Marcy, but these two girls nailed it yet again! That makes them three for three with amazing sets together.

I went all out with some M&M's themed shirts and toe socks, which is only the second time I've ever shot them for the site. Of course the set wouldn't have been complete with some big bowls full of M&M's to be used between the two girls' toes! I wanted as much color as possible, which by now, you can see is something I truly value in my sets.

As far as this set goes, this set turned out to be one of the largest to ever be featured on Soles of Silk. At 137 photos, I just couldn't stop snapping photo after photo of these two. Add in all the time I spent reaching out to pull M&M's from between their toes for a quick snack, and for some foot rubs, and this set was one that just kept going. I wish it was still going, in all honesty!


2. Rainbow Dodgeball
Model(s): Amelia
Published Date: May 11, 2016

Back in 2005 I did a four model dodgeball themed set featuring Kellie, Kimmie, Carmen, and Cheri. I've always been a fan of the game, so I knew I'd visit the theme again at some point. Well, in 2016 I published another dodgeball set, this time with just one model, but one makes every set she's in memorable. That model is none other than Amelia.

Once again, color played a huge roll in why I loved this set. I found two rainbow playground balls one day while I was shopping and then remembered that I had some equally colorful socks in my possession that I had yet to use. I bought the balls and then ran the idea by Amelia. I told her we were going to make this one as colorful as possible and boy was that ever the case. We even went and picked up a tie dye T-shirt and neon colored sports bottle to kick it up just one more notch. And finally we went with mismatching socks from the same pack just to add in even more color.

Amelia nailed it here with some amazing poses and some emotion that showed how much fun she was having. Her smile is infectious and she had one the entire time while she stuck those pretty feet of hers out to my camera. I knew I had something special shooting this one.


1. Swirl Lollipops
Model(s): Mindee
Published Date: March 23, 2016

When I set out to make this list this set was the first one that popped into my mind. I jotted it down on paper, along with the sets above, and the dozen honorable mentions listed below. No matter how much I tried to find reasons why I liked one set just a little more than the others, this set remained the one I couldn't put any over for numerous reasons. I had a feeling from the start it would be number one, and that's where it ended up falling.

Yet again, color played a factor in this set. The stocking you see encased around Mindee's left leg and foot was one I bought on sale online some time ago. I showed Mindee the stockings and she said she was wearing them in a set - no ifs, ands, or buts about it. It did take us a while to find just when and where we'd use them, however.

When Mindee and I decided to embark on a mini-vacation to Cedar Point, I checked out one of the hotels at the park. Upon seeing the beds inside the rooms the stockings popped into my head. The colorful stripes of the bedspreads and the colorful strips of netted stockings would make for a good combination. It also didn't hurt that there was amusement park rides featured on the headboards that added in even more color. Still, my mind kept thinking and that's when it hit me - swirl lollipops! You can't get much more colorful than swirl lollipops, so I bought a few dozen online in all different sizes. Hey, if a little bit of size teasing happened in this set too, so be it!

Needless to say, with all the things going, this set turned out to be one I loved. However, I really thought Mindee looked extra stunning in this set - even more so than normal. I can't really say why that is because I don't know. I just felt that way looking at her on the bed shooting this and it was captured perfectly in the photos as well.

Honorable Mentions (12)
: Abby - See Thru Flip Flops, Alice - Old Fireplace, Alice - Bettie Page Book, Amelia - Bug Catcher, Cierra - Sweaty Flats, Felicia - Pokemon, Jamie - Teal Everything, Jasey Rae - Deflated Footballs, Mindee - Old Rollercoasters, Reese - Denim Flats, Rilynn - Big Comic Heels, & Wendy - Train Station

So what photo sets were your favorites from this year? I can only imagine what will be on next year's list with so many great sets just waiting to be published, plus any new ones done in 2017.
