Dream Duos #1 - Mindee & Melani

Welcome to the first ever installment of the Dream Duo Blog Series. It's always a fun time when I can get two models together for a photo shoot, but there are always certain pairings that I just know will result in some awesome photos. Over the years I've been lucky enough to make some of those pairings happen. Pairings such as Madison & Lauryn, when I launched the site in 2004, and Alice & Leah just last week, were quick to become fan favorites. That being said, I thought it would be fun to come up with some "Dream Duos," if you will, and pitch them to you here in this all new blog series. Each entry will focus on one potential duo. We kick this all new series off with one of the site's original models, Mindee, and one of the site's newest, Melani.

Mindee (left)
Shoe Size: 8
Debut: December 29, 2004
# of Photos on Site: 4407
Other Models Shot With: Mariah (set lost), Cierra, Marcy, Emerald, Kelsey, Reese, Rein, Rilynn, and Noelle

Melani (right)
Shoe Size: 6
Debut: April 12, 2017
# of Photos on Site: 79
Other Models Shot With: none

Mindee is far and away my site's most photographed model. She debuted with the site back in December 29, 2004 with a baseball themed set that involved socks. Fast forward to the April 12, 2017 update and another model, whose name begins with an "M," Melani, makes her debut. Her debut set was also themed to baseball and involved socks. Talk about a quinky dink!? That totally wasn't planned and was something I just realized sitting down to write this blog. I might have to include said fact in this year's trivia contest!

Anyhow, my reason for wanting to see these two models together has nothing to do with those aforementioned ties. It is more along the lines of having one of the site's newest models shooting with one of the site's most established. For me, it's akin to seeing a can't miss rookie prospect teaming up with a hall of fame caliber player in sports.

With Mindee's vast experience, and having teamed up with nine different models at this point, a set with Melani will come as second nature to her. In the past Mindee has served as a great mentor to newly debuting models, most recently Reese, Rein, Rilynn, and Noelle in 2016. She was on set for all of their debuts, shooting with each of them immediately after. It really helped having Mindee their to help them get their feet wet - pun intended.

Melani, however, probably doesn't need much coaching. While she's still very new to this, she's caught on quick. We've shot on two different occasions thus far, and almost got in a third had it not been for chilly weather. With five sets in this first month, Melani is learning quick. She'll still learn some stuff from Mindee though, no doubt!

Another important factor in matching up two models for a set together is chemistry. That's why I always love shooting relatives and/or friends, like Kaycee and Reagan, for example. There is that inherent bond between everyone involved and fun almost always ensues because of it. Even though Mindee and Melani have yet to meet, the two have such fun loving, carefree personalities, I know this will work. By the end of the set I'm sure we'll all be laughing our asses off, probably at my expense - isn't that right, Mindee? Although both these ladies are known to say some things that will also result in some laughs - isn't that right, Melani?

I don't know how long this duo will remain a "Dream Duo." I've mentioned the idea of shooting these two together to the both of them. Mindee, as always, was down. Melani also thought it would be cool and said to let her know when. Now all I have to do is start trying to match everyone's schedule, which is usually the hardest part in making any duo a reality. We all work different places and Melani is actually still in high school, having turned 18 earlier this year. Nevertheless, this is one Dream Duo I intend to make happen sooner, rather than later.

Be on the lookout for future Dream Duo entries. Which two models would you most like to see photographed together? Don't hesitate to let me know.

Alice & Leah Join Instagram

Alice (left) and Leah can now be reached on Instagram.

Guess who is now on Instagram? Alice (@Alice__Elevens) and newcomer, Leah (@LoveLeah.x). This should make many of you happy. All too often I have to tell followers of the Soles of Silk Instagram account (@SolesofSilk) that I am not the model shown in the images that I post. Sometimes I tell them once, sometimes twice. Other times the same person will shoot me a message 20 times, each based off a different model I posted from the site. I've begun to block those people to save my sanity.

Anyhow, this blog is just a short entry to let you know that you can shoot these girls a message. How often they're going to check and/or update these accounts remains to be seen. They're both quite busy, but foot fetishism is something that both girls rather do enjoy. Just be respectful because they might block you even quicker than I will if you're not. I won't blame them either!

Melani - Little Feet, Big Heart

So many of you have been in love with the site's newest model, Melani. Can't say I blame you!

Today was the first Monday this month where I didn't get to shoot photos with one of the site's newest models, Melani. It's not like we had planned to do any, but last night I did shoot her a text to tell her my day looked to be open today. Sadly, hers was not. It rained anyhow, but I'm sure she would have looked cute stomping her little size 6's into some mud or rain puddles. We would have made something happen, I'm sure. Oh well!

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me on social media and on the site itself. From the moment Melani's first photo was shown on Instagram (IG) (@SolesofSilk), Twitter (TW) (@SolesofSilk), and the Wu's Feet Links Forum (WU), she's been a massive hit. There are too many to list, but just check out some of the comments from these three platforms:

  • "Killing the competition with this one." - @razorsharpselect (IG)
  • "Wow she is gorgeous." - @foot_kisses (IG)
  • "She is amazing. Her soles are even more AMAZING." - @theteam17 (IG)
  • "Melani is so gorgeous. Her feet are just an added bonus." - @kingdoug81 (IG)
  • "Great find Patrick! I'm sure those shoes make her feet smell intense!" - @barefoot_planet (IG)
  • "She's gorgeous from head to soles."@pintokenneth (IG)
  • "Oh wow. She's a 10 with awesome soles." - @BenRebellious (TW)
  • "She is one of the prettiest models you have ever had!" - @Irishfootfan (TW)
  • "She looks incredible!" - @mace17 (TW)
  • "Gorgeous model, incredible feet!" - @Benlovesfeet (TW)
  • "Holy crap you outdid yourself this time and the clear sneakers, awesome touch." - @BenRebellious (TW)
  • "I'll say home run! 'Crack goes the bat!' Great score, Patrick." - Kelfee (WU)

Then there was email. I had a few of you mention that you liked Melani and were looking forward to her debut. This email, however, was one I was quick to share with her to show her how much people liked her and her work.

"Hey man! I just saw your preview pics of your new model, Melani, and I just have to say, wow. She is absolutely beautiful and might have the prettiest feet I've ever seen! I hope you get to take as many pics of her as you possibly can. You do amazing work! Hope everything is going well for you." - Derek

All this feedback, and more, has been shared with Melani. We have been chatting on a regular basis and she's loves seeing what everyone has to say. She might be tiny, but this girl has a lot of love for all of you. She gets so happy seeing all these comments, likes, shares, and retweet on social media. For those of you, like the person above, who took the time to write an entire email, you truly made her day. Melani has little feet, but has a big heart. Thanks for showing her that love right back, everyone! 

Since you've all been so awesome, please enjoy these two preview shots from sets that are yet to be published. Stay up to date on any Soles of Silk happenings on this blog, or via social media by visiting the links listed above. And don't worry everyone, it's only been one week since I last shot photos of Melani. I don't plan on letting too many go by without getting her back in front of the camera again.

This fun little pose came during Melani's first ever set.

Monday's Shoot - Melani

Do you want the good news, or the bad news first?

Since I can't really know what answer you'd have for this question as I write this blog, I'm going to assume you said the bad news. So here it is!

Today's shoot location was about an hour, to hour and 15 minute drive. That drive ended up taking slight over two and a half hours! That's right, more than double what it should have. I tried some back roads, only to find those resembling a parking lot. Those roads had lane closures for construction, and everyone else jumping off the highway with the same idea I had. It was a mess!

Now, the good news!

I got to shoot with Melani again. Just a week after her debut sets were shot, she's already back in front of my camera posing her 18 year feet once again. She technically hasn't even debuted on site yet, shooting twice within this first week. Anyhow, Melani is on spring break this week and didn't get scheduled to work today. Since I didn't book anyone else to shoot, I pitched the idea to shoot again and make a day out of it. The plan was to try to shoot five sets, but due to that traffic, we came away with only three. But man, those three sets turned out fantastic!

We finally got to our destination and out of the car around 4 p.m. I knew we'd be against the clock if we aimed to shoot all that we had planned to do. In the back of my mind, I figured we'd end up doing less. As odd as it sounds, I wasn't really mad about it. Normally I'd be irked, but I don't know how you can be anything but carefree with Melani around. She's super sweet and very fun to be around. Any negative vibes are quickly replaced with positive ones.

We arrived later than we had planned, but got things underway quickly with this first set.

The first location we used was a wildlife preserve. I picked a spot where I knew we'd be able to shoot a few sets all within short walks of the other. With my car near by, Melani could swap outfits and we could try for as many sets as we could get in.

Melani used the same outfit she had on when I picked her up, what was now, hours ago. You might have already saw her sandals when I took a photo of them on my dashboard earlier. I posted it to the Soles of Silk Instagram account (@SolesofSilk). No, I wasn't shooting while driving! We were at a literal stand still. Melani even joked that we could probably get out and make it up to our Delaware location on foot faster. I agreed and told her that then her feet will hurt and she'll want a foot rub. 

"Let's do it, " I joked. Melani just laughed.

The wildlife preserve featured a boardwalk that created a large oval shape. It had a few overlook areas sticking out from the oval. We stopped along the way to use a few of them for the majority of this set. There wasn't too many people around, so we made good time getting this one in.

Once our set and video clip were finished, Melani strapped her sandals back on and we made the short walk back to my car. From there our initial plan was to do a set with Melani in a skirt, thigh high stockings, and heels. Melani, however, brought the wrong outfit, so we decided to save the theme for a future shoot. Instead, it was time for a workout theme with sneakers. No socks, of course!

I'm always a sucker for a gal's bare feet post workout. Can you blame me?

This set was shot about 100 yards away from the wildlife preserve, so we were really making good use of our time. I had Melani do a few standing and stretch poses before she sat down to kick off her white sneakers. She had brought them along the last time she shot too (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Melani"), but we didn't get to them. Now we were, which made me happy. I love sneaker sets, especially when there are no socks involved.

When Melani had one sneaker removed I suggested the pose of smelling her shoe. She gave me a funny look, but said okay. I promised her within minutes of me shooting a version of the pose for Instagram, her fans would say how jealous they were, or how they wished they could have smelled it. She laughed and I was 100 percent right. Those comments came shortly after we wrapped up the set and video clip. I showed them to her once she was done changing clothes to do the next set. She got a laugh out of those quick comments.

Now it was time to do our third set, but we faced a little problem. Melani wasn't feeling the outfit combo she had because it didn't quite match. We decided to go ahead and save the set for a future shoot as well. Melani jumped back into the car and changed into another outfit instead. This one would go along with some special footwear I brought along for her - clear Converse.

These clear Converse made Melani's feet sweat and sweat and sweat. I loved it!

I had bought these shoes about a year to a year and a half ago. I thought one of my other models would wear them in a set, but she's been impossible to reach lately. Since Melani wears the same size shoe, I asked her if she'd like to wear them. She agreed and I couldn't wait to see her bare feet fog up the inside of those plastic shoes. It didn't take long for me to get my wish either.

Within minutes of Melani pushing her bare feet into these shoes, they began sweating. Clearly (pun intended), they're meant to be worn with socks. Knowing me as well as you do, however, you know that isn't how it's going to happen. Nope. Shoes and no socks is a theme I'm always looking to shoot. We just did one with her sneakers and I was all for doing it again. This is also a theme many of you request. Yeah, we're all weird!

For this set we jumped into my car for a short drive down to a near by shopping district. It was along the same river, but featured a more urban look. When we got out of the car, however, Melani shared that not only did she forget the dress from earlier, but a bra that would work with this particular shirt as well. Needless to say, you could kind of see some jewelry of hers and I'll just leave it at that. Well, for the blog anyhow. I teased her about it quite a bit as we walked around looking for a spot. That crossed arms walk was adorable.

Ultimately it was just too crowded to shoot in these locations. Had we been there earlier in the day, when people were in school and work, I'm sure we could have pulled it off. Since so many people were out and about on this beautiful day, and since Melani's lack of a certain wardrobe item might draw extra attention, we went back to my car. We decided to return to where we had just come from. I knew we'd be able to find a spot to make this happen, with a lot less people around. Only thing was, we were now running against the clock. The sun was starting to go down, but was out just enough to provide us light to get this last set done.

We wanted to shoot this set on some benches at the base of the walk bridge found in Melani's workout set above. Only thing was, people kept coming by to sit down on them. That would still put Melani in a spot where she might feel uncomfortable. That's when we saw the large rocks down below. They were made into seats for people to sit upon as they walked through the gardens. There was no one was down there, so that's where we went.

By this time Melani's feet had been in those shoes for a while. They were fogged up in several places, mainly along her arches and toes. I made sure to take a few photos so you could see that. I purposely didn't allow her to kick them off before that happened. I think she rolled her eyes and laughed when I told I wanted to go in for a close up of it. I also told her people were going to notice and comment on that when I did a shot for Instagram too. Once again, I was right on the money as it came shortly after it was posted.

After a handful of photos, I told Melani to go ahead and begin sliding her feet out of her shoes. That was easier said than done though, since they were so moist. Nevertheless, it was fun watching her struggle to yank them out. She kept laughing and I was full of jokes during the process.

Eventually Melani would get to air out her soft, warm feet when the second shoe came off. I'm sure it was refreshing for her! I took a bunch of barefoot photos and then gave her the bad news. She'd have to slide them back on for the video clip. I got a stare and she began putting them back on. It was just like the first time too - they didn't go on easily. I'm sure socks would have made the process much easier, but at this point, I've well established how they were omitted purposely.

The clip for this showed Melani tug those shoes from her feet once more. Luckily for her, this time she didn't have them on as long as she did previously when she took them off that first time Sure, they warmed up and got moist again, but it wasn't like they did before when we walked around for a bit. Still, she did have to give them a good tug to get them back off.

With the third set in the books, we were out of time to shoot anything else. I looked at her and told her it was time for us to go get fat. Dinner sounded so good, so it was back to the car. Needless to say, she wanted to change into something else so the "girls" weren't such a distraction. I'm sure our waiter wouldn't have minded, however.

Now that shooting was done for the day, Melani and I got to hang out and shoot the shit for a while. We caught up on so many things and had a blast talking about all kinds of stuff. It was the perfect way to unwind after taking three great sets. Then the car ride home happened!

No, we didn't catch traffic this time. That went smoothly. What happened during our car ride home was pure shenanigans. It started off with her telling me she might fall asleep on the way home, unless I thought I might fall asleep instead. Then she'd stay up. Since I'm driving, I told her that I don't think that would be a good idea, but thanks! That caused quite a few laughs. From there, we listed to some filthy rap songs with lyrics I won't include in this blog. Let's just say, it talked about eating things. Then she asked this question, "Why do you think balls are called balls and arms are called arms?"

I didn't quite know the answer to the arms part, but I assured her that I'm sure balls was a nickname/term that came later on. Then we tossed around other body part nicknames and wondered how they came to be.

The worst of it came, however, when we were almost home. Melani asked me if I had ever seen a video that involved a glass jar and... "No, and I don't want to either," I said, cutting her off. From just that sentence fragment alone, I knew what she was talking about. I've heard of this video from other people before and have no desire to see it. So what did Melani do? Played it on her phone so I could hear it. Yeah, it sounded like a recycling center and I thanked her for the mental images that were running through my head.

Melani, you're crazy! That's why I love ya, though! Thanks for the awesome day of photos and for keeping me company on what turned out to be a great day - even with all the traffic. Can't wait to do it again and I'm sure, neither can you fans. I'm also betting you can't either and I love that enthusiasm!

Editor's Note: Melani's official on site debut happens this week. Be sure not to miss out when it goes live on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

Sunday's Shoot - Alice & Leah (New Model)

Two more sets. Two more models shot - one of which, is a newcomer. Add that to the list of productivity I've had over the last several weeks and I don't know how things could get much better. Well, maybe if I had another all day shoot planned for tomorrow. Oh wait, I do! Before I get ahead of myself here, today's shoot deserves some attention. No, scratch that! It deserves a lot of attention!

Last year Alice tied Mindee as my site's most photographed model for 2016, with 11 sets each. It was her second time doing 11 sets in a calendar year, which is awesome considering that she's only been shooting for those two years. She just keeps modeling her size 11's and I keep on shooting them. Well, she's already got two under her belt for 2017... or is that inside her sock?

Alice wasn't today's only model, however. And unlike last Tuesday, when I shot Felicia (see blog: "Tuesday's Shoot - Felicia") followed by Mindee (see blog: "Tuesday's Shoot - Mindee"), today's sets featured Alice with a debuting, Leah, and her size 6 feet. Both models, shooting at the same time. 

Already in this young 2017 Soles of Silk is seeing its second new sole mate. Last Monday, Melani shot her first sets (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Melani") and she's also the model I'm shooting all day tomorrow. Like Melani, Leah also has small size 6 feet and loved every minute of shooting. She was a breeze to shoot and can't wait to do so again soon. Good stuff!

I met up with Alice and Leah today around 1:45 p.m. We were running about an hour and a half behind as Alice had a long night and didn't get much sleep. It, however, afforded me some time to scout some potential shoot locations and hit up a store for extra props. Alice apologized several times, but I assured her it was okay. She's been there every single time I've asked her to shoot these last two years. She's never been someone who blows me off, or stands me up. I wasn't upset at all. I told her she just owes me some extra time rubbing her feet. She agreed and said how she enjoys my forms of punishment.

After some small talk I began setting up my photo lights for the first set. This gave me some time to shoot the shit with Alice and to also get to know Leah. She seemed like a cool person who was really looking forward to her first set. Normally, I'd have a new model sit and watch the experienced model do a set first. When she's done, then I'd have the new model shoot. Since we were running behind, however, both girls would be in on this first set - and man, oh man, did these two have a shit ton of fun shooting this!

Leah's (left) & Alice's feet wouldn't stop sweating during this first set of the day.

The theme for this first set was originally going to be an Easter one. While it still kind of is, it's been morphed into something "larger." It'll go up on the update following Easter and will see the girls get a crappy Easter basket from the Easter Bunny. It was full of small white chocolate bunnies and soft marshmallow candies. How boring! These two ladies, with some cute bunnies on their shirts, prefer milk and/or dark chocolate treats. Something a little bigger, or is that a lot bigger? Not to mention, harder and full of nuts... um, almonds.

Alice and Leah began this set in some thigh high stockings, complete with bows. While their legs and feet were encased in these stockings, they rummaged through the Easter Bunny's basket, which was appropriately blue for something so "vanilla." You can tell the girls were not impressed.

Once the snowbunny basket, full of chocolate, came out, that's when gals began to really liven up. Things got super silly. Feet were grabbed, toes were licked, and chocolates were pushed into the spaces between all 20 of their toes. The best thing of all, both girls' feet kept sweating the entire time this happened. I couldn't help but give them a rub here and there. I love them that way! They were literally dripping wet.

After a ton of photos and the customary video clip to end the set, we wrapped things up. There were so many laughs to be had about what just happened. Alice loved getting in another set with another model. Leah simply loved being shot for the very first time, saying how much fun it was. I... Well, I was just in awe of the sights that had just transpired. It's going to be one of the most memorable sets I ever shoot, I'm sure. Well, maybe until these two shoot again.

At this point we realized we were running short on time and got ready to go do our next set. The original plan was to shoot two solo sets (one with each of them) and then another duo. Since time was of the essence, we decided to save the solo sets for another time. Instead, another two girl set it was!

The three of us jumped into my car and drove off to a near by high school. I was looking for a track to use as a setting. Sadly, however, when we got to the school, the sun wasn't in the right space in the sky to shoot in my desired direction. We found a slightly different spot instead, and got things underway.

Dozens of people walking the track, kept looking our way during this shoot.

Now, some of you might be asking right up front, "Why another over the knee high socks set?" Well, I recently bought two dozen pairs of these socks from a website for $1 per pair. I thought the offer was too good to be true, but if it was, I'd only be out about $30 after shipping. Well, the socks came in two weeks time and my models have been scooping them up ASAP. This time the color choice of socks would be blue and white. I think it's safe to say, both these ladies love blue for some fun reason.

Alice and Leah began this set wearing their own pairs of socks - Alice in the white with blue stripes and Leah in the blue with white stripes. By the end of this set, however, those socks would be on each other's sweaty feet. Mixing foot sweat seemed to be a secondary theme of the day too. It happened in the first set and now it was happening again. I love my hobby!

Needless to say, the entire time we shot this set, people walked by us and just stared. We even had a male senior come walking along the bleachers as we used them to shoot. He was doing some kind of up and down the bleachers work out and passed us by a few times. Toward the end of the shoot we had a male sitting off to my right and a female off to my left, both looking at us as we shot. Both got up to leave when we wrapped up too. So odd! Guess the girls were putting on a show? I know I sure thought so as I shot the photos of the both of them pulling and tugging on the four socks throughout.

With time running out, we wrapped up this set and headed back to Alice's place. While we didn't get in as many sets as we had planned, the day was still an amazing one with two awesome ladies. Alice has been a blast to shoot from her debut back in 2014. You all know how passionate I get about shooting with her and those lovely size 11's. As for Leah, in just two sets she came across as having done this for several years as well. I know she's going to be having more great sets down the road. With that being said, I really hope I see both these ladies on a regular basis here in 2017 and for many years to come. I can only imagine the craziness that will ensue if that turns out to be the case! Luckily for you, I'll be sharing it right here on the blog, on Soles of Silk, and on the site's Instagram (@SolesofSilk), and Twitter (@SolesofSilk) accounts.

Tuesday's Shoot - Felicia

Since last week I've been on quite the roll meeting up with a handful of models for new photos. Last Wednesday, Jasey Rae showed off her plump little toes for my first shoot of 2017 (see blog: "Wednesday's Shoot - Jasey Rae") and yesterday, Melani flashed her soles for her very first time (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Melani"). Well, today I was lucky enough to get in a set with Felicia and then follow that up with a set with Mindee. You'll read about Mindee's in a separate blog, however (see blog: "Tuesday's Shoot - Mindee"). This blog focuses on the first shoot done today with Felicia!

Felicia and I talked about this shoot since last week. We hung out after work and picked up a few Nintendo Switch consoles with a mutual friend of ours. Since the weather has been getting nicer, I mentioned that we could always squeeze in a set or two after we get off work on Tuesdays. Felicia agreed, so we made plans for today.

For the last two days, however, I was scared that this shoot might not happen. We were going to do an outdoor set, but the forecast for Tuesday seemed to change on a daily basis. A few days ago, it looked great. The day after, it was calling for storms. Yesterday morning, back to a beautiful day. During the same day, a few hours later, rain again. We just decided to go ahead and bring our stuff and see what we could get. Luckily for us, the rain happened in the early morning hours before either of us were awake. By time 5 p.m. rolled around, we were good to go! The day was beautiful, but it was about to become even more so. Felicia was about to model for me and that makes any day that much better!

After some quick stops we were on our way to a park Felicia has used for some of her own photo and art projects. I've also shot in the park as well, but it's been a number of years. It was nearby, however, so we decided to see what we could get. It turned out to be a great call for location and Felicia is totally to thank for the suggestion.

The park itself features many historic buildings. It was part of a fort ages ago and some of the buildings have seen better days. It provided us with something a little different than my normal settings. Plus, putting something as beautiful as Felicia in a setting like the one we used, just adds that much more contrast. Add in the outfit she decided to bring, and it just fit so well.

Felicia was responsible for her outfit and this location - both were great choices.

As you can see by the sample photo above, I did another set with some over the knee socks. Melani did a white pair with black stripes yesterday for her baseball set. Felicia did a yellow pair with black stripes today. With her all black outfit, shoes, and hair, it made those socks really pop! I have to hand it to her, this really worked! Other than making me feel short with those shoes, she looked great and the setting just added to everything visually! 

We began this set with some full body shots up against the wall. We kept with these poses for a bit because we had three high school age boys walking around the upper level of the structure. They waited around like they had never seen a woman before, or like they were about to get a show. After a number of shots we decided to walk into a similar area a few yards away. Same structure, just different section. Here we would shoot the majority of the set.

For the most part these photos went off without a hitch. We shot mostly on the steps, stopping only when a person, or family passed by. It really wasn't bad at all as they usually just went on their way - for now, that is. More on this later.

It was really fun watching Felicia kick off her footwear - both her shoes and socks. She has quite a bit of energy to her and loves to tease. Believe me, she did just that. I'd expect nothing less from her. I loved the photo of her her offering us her shoe to sniff on the site's Instagram (@SolesofSilk). Check that out if you haven't already. Of course she smelled them afterward since she knows I like them sweaty and even somewhat smelly. Yup, that's what I deal with shooting Felicia. I know, poor Pat!

Once we were finished with our photos, it was time for us to do a short video clip. I was going to have her pull both her socks and shoes off in the clip, but that was not to be. I think everyone in town all of a sudden discovered the area where we were trying to shoot. One family. Two families. Some more high school kids. A few middle school kids. I was waiting for a parade to come by. It reminded me of the 1966 Batman movie when he was trying to get rid of the bomb. Instead, I was just trying to see Felicia's cute feet.

After about 15 minutes, we decided to go down to the waterfront area and just do the clip there. Sadly, however, the sun was going down at this point and I knew the lighting would not be favorable. Instead we walked back to my car and decided to just shoot an extra clip the next time we meet up.

Originally we thought about doing two sets today, but fell short on time. That might have worked out for the better, however, as now we can shoot again soon and not be rushed for time. Felicia is a very creative person, so it'll probably allow us to toss around some better ideas. I recommended doing a set with her playing with her Nintendo Switch for example. That'll be cute, I'm sure. 

Hey, any time you're free Felicia, even for just a few hours like today, you're always welcome to shoot again and again.

Tuesday's Shoot - Mindee

If you just read my first shoot blog of the day, covering the shoot I did with Felicia (see blog: "Tuesday's Shoot - Felicia"), you already know that I've been quite busy this last week shooting new sets. Originally my only plans for today, however, were with Felicia. Then Mindee hit me up a few days later, just as I was about to shoot with Melani (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Melani").

As I waited for Melani to get ready yesterday, Mindee explained to me that she'd be getting off early on Tuesday, and if I was game, she'd like to hang out and maybe even shoot. I told her about my previous plans with Felicia, but also about how we were unsure if we'd get to shoot with the forecast all over the place. She understood, but then mentioned that if I wanted to, I could come over later that evening, around 7:30 p.m. instead, and we could squeeze in a particular set we've been looking to do for months.

That idea worked perfectly! No matter how the weather played out, I'd be able to shoot Mindee. If it rained, Felicia and I would have to reschedule and I'd be left with some free time. If I was lucky enough to shoot Felicia, then I could head straight from that shoot to Mindee's afterward. Two models in the same day? That's what I was hoping for and that's exactly how things played out!

After Felicia and I wrapped up, I prepared for what turned out to be one of the "shittiest" sets I've ever done. No joke! Mindee always does a great job, but this set was "crap!" Just look at the sample down below! "Crap!"

Now that my sarcastic puns are over, for now anyhow, this set has been one that's been in the making for months! The idea came to me from a cute little thing I do with Mindee when I text her. I've called her Mindee-Poo for some time now, but eventually began substituting out the "Poo" part of her name with the Poo emoji instead. Well, when the Poo emoji began taking off recently, it sparked my ever creative mind and I told Mindee this is a theme we just have to do.

Obviously, Mindee said I was stupid.

Obviously, I was going to make Mindee do it anyhow.

For months now I've been buying countless Poo emoji items whenever I see them in stores. I bought everything from pillows to cups. Mugs to key chains. Erasers to a hat. A Mr. Turdy mold and the best thing of all, a giant Poo bean bag chair. Oh "crap," I forgot about the Poo hand sanatizer bottle, slippers, lanyard, and lollipop. Yes, I went that overboard.

Then there was the lead up to this set... I drove around for about two months with the giant Poo bean bag chair in the passenger seat of my car. Needless to say, I got a lot of looks because of that. Felicia eventually moved it, however, when we went out for ice cream last month. I told her she'd have to sit in the back seat because the Poo had shotgun. She wasn't having it though! How rude! From that point forward, the Poo lived in the backseat - until today.

Today was the day. Mindee, I'm sure, was so looking forward to this. I got to her house a few minutes late and she was waiting out on the porch for me. I saw the look on her face when that giant Poo and the bags full of Poo themed items were taken into her house. This was going to be fun, at least for me!

We decided to spread all these items across Mindee's bed. There was just so much of it and I thought the bed would allow her to showcase everything. So while I set up my photo lamps, Mindee pulled item after item out of the bags, saying "Eww" more times than I can recall.

Mindee, you my friend, are the "shit!"

Once we were ready to go, Mindee took her place among all the "shit" on the bed. Ha, another pun! She started with those huge slippers, which totally hid her feet. The Poo pile on the front of these things was massive. Eventually, I had to have her kick them off slightly and then totally outright to start showing off those size 8 feet we've all come to love.

When Mindee finally got her slippers off, we shot a bunch of photos trying to incorporate every item we could. I think we got them all, but in all honesty, we might have missed one or two. There was just so much laying across the bed.

After the set, we shot a fun little clip with Mindee messing with numerous Poo items one last time. I'm thinking about calling the clip simply, "Number 2." What do you think?

I have to say, for an idea that Mindee gave me so much "shit" for leading up until today, she was a trooper and didn't let all the "crap" get to her. Yeah, I had to include a few more puns before wrapping this up. In all honesty, this set was just a super fun one that I knew Mindee and I would have a blast shooting. After as many sets as she's done, it's not every day that we find new stuff to do. I did, however, tell her we should do this same set again in the future and call it, "Same Shit, Different Day."

Yeah, that didn't get that many laughs when I said it to her either.

Monday's Shoot - Melani (New Model)

I've been lucky enough to shoot so many of my friends for Soles of Silk since its debut in late 2004. Well, here in 2017 it is the case once more as the site's newest sole mate, Melani, makes her debut.

Melani and I used to work together not too long ago. She was friends with Camille, whose older sister, Kayleigh, shot for me on a regular basis. Neither Camille, nor Melani, were old enough to shoot at the time. That didn't stop either one of them from telling me they were going to do it once they turned 18, however. 

As you all know, Camille shot her first sets back in August 2015, once she turned 18 (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Alice & Camille"). Melani, however, still had to wait a little longer. Sadly, during this time she would go on to find another job and we would lose touch for a number of months.

A little over a week ago I noticed that Melani had accepted a friend request that I had sent her all those months ago. She said she doesn't use that account much, but I'm so glad that she happened to do so on that day. After accepting my friend request we began talking and catching up with one another. She had turned 18 a few months back, so I decided to go ahead and see if she was still interested in shooting. Luckily for me, she was!

I have always found Melani to be just the cutest. She's always smiling, she has very pretty eyes, and she is a tiny little thing. Above all that, however, has a fun loving personality. I don't know if I've ever seen her mad. Knowing that, I always assumed she'd be a natural in front of the camera - cracking adorable smiles, and having lots of fun while doing it. That's what I thought it would be like and it totally was!

Melani and I met up around 1 p.m. today after she got done with classes. She had to be at work by 5 p.m., so we decided to go ahead and try to squeeze in a couple of sets during that span. We had talked about trying to schedule something during the prior week. That's when we noticed we would possibly match up on Monday. She just had to wait to get her work schedule to let me know. Luckily for us, our schedules matched up and we made plans to shoot much earlier than I had anticipated. Melani was very excited to give this a try too, so we went for it. 

The first set for Melani was a simple one with flip flops. I tend to start off all my new models with something that doesn't overwhelm them right away. I keep all the complicated theming, props, or poses for future sets, even though those don't really tend to be that hard either, honestly.

I was loving the shots I got when Melani kicked her heels up onto the railing.

I had Melani start off with a few full body shots. We were in a small covered structure that looks out over a marshy area at a nearby park. Before long, I had her pull her feet up onto the benches and that's when her toes caught my attention. The night before she had painted her toes orange and white to fit the theme of the second set we had planned for the day. More on that in a bit, though.

As the set progressed, Melani pulled off each one of her flip flops to bare her cute little soles for the first time. Just like her toes, they were adorable. I dropped to a low angle pretty quickly to get those soles and her smiling face all in the shot together. And as time went on, I had her stick her feet up onto the railings for other similar shots - just like the one you see above. I got in a lot of great shots while her feet were perched up there.

During this first set something adorable happened. In all my sets you know that I will regularly have models spread and curl their toes throughout their poses. Well, the first few times I asked Melani to spread her toes, she struggled. And struggled hard. We were both laughing, watching as her toes barely budged.

"This is hard," she claimed while laughing.

"Yeah, your struggles are real," I replied. "You have it so bad!"

"I do!" she insisted.

After some more playful banter those little piggies finally began to wake up. I noticed some more space forming between those toes each and every time I asked her to do it. It really was cute watching her try and teasing her all the while.

Once I shot enough photos it was onto film Melani's first ever video clip. She threw her flip flops back on and then pulled them off once more during the course of the clip. And with that, her first ever set was in the books.

As we collected our stuff for our journey back to my car, Melani commented on how fun and easy that was. I assured her prior to shooting that she would find that to be the case. Even so, I was glad to hear her say that. Oftentimes when my models enjoy shooting, they'll come to me with ideas and ask me when we can shoot again. I have a feeling Melani will be doing just that - hopefully on a regular basis.

Now it was time to get ready for the second set - the one that had her paint her toes orange and white, which you may have seen teased Sunday night on the Soles of Silk Instagram account (@SolesofSilk). I stood outside my car while she changed into an outfit I picked up a few hours prior to posting that teaser image. When she emerged, I was awestruck. She looked so adorable. As you can see below.

Melani in her Orioles shirt, shorts, and over the knee socks had me simply in awe.

The theme for this second set was baseball. It is Opening Day today and we had our home team, the Baltimore Orioles, in mind. My plan was to shoot her on some bleachers, so we made the short walk to the back of the park and got things underway.

Melani's bright orange shirt stood out, but seeing her legs and feet in her over the knee socks made me all but realize just how much of a hit this set was going to be. Well, unless you're a Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays, or Rays fan. It's ok, no one is perfect. I'm sure you'll still be in awe of Melani and her little bare feet, just as I was, by the end of the set.

Melani began this set showing off her little feet still clad in socks. Before long, however, she started tugging them down her legs. She left them balled up around her heels, however, at my request. From there, she stuck her legs straight out at me and pulled on the toe portion of each sock. This allowed a slow reveal of her soft soles before they came up and over her tiny toes. I got a bunch of good photos during this stretch of the set.

Once Melani had her socks removed we did a few barefoot shots with a baseball and then moved onto another prop I had brought with me - peanuts. Adding these to the set was a last minute idea yesterday evening. Being the set was in bleachers, I thought smashing up a few of them and sticking them between her toes would be perfect. That's just what she did too.

With our photos now done for this second set, Melani pulled her socks back on and we repeated the process on video. Watching it the first time was a treat, but getting to see it a second time pretty much makes me feel spoiled. We're already talking about doing some thigh high socks down the road. I know she'll look great in them too!

I have to say, Melani took to everything she did today naturally. I enjoyed both sets, but the second one was a home run, pun intended. You'll get to see that when this set, and video clip, are featured on the site April 12. Until then you'll be able to see two more preview shots when they're published in the coming soon section with the April 5 update this week.

Before I wrap things up, I want to take a minute and thank Melani for meeting up on short notice today. You did an amazing job. Your natural beauty and fun loving nature came through just as I had hoped. Getting to hang out with you so much fun. I hope to do so again one day soon. I also hope that you become one of my regular models moving forward. I can only imagine how much cuteness you'll add to and future shoots.
