Sunday's Shoot - Allie (New Model)

Word of mouth. I am often asked how I find my models and a good number of times over recent years it's been, word of mouth. That is how I landed Soles of Silk's newest model, Allie, and her little size 5 feet. Allie was introduced to me through Kaycee and Reagan. After texting one another about the site and what it is I do, she agreed to shoot this weekend and I'm happy to announce her arrival.

Leading up to today, I was worried that our shoot would be washed out by rain. Over the last few days it has rained its ass off, even to the point where I could barely see out of my car driving to a friend's house Friday night. Thankfully, Saturday was the end of the storms and Sunday was left at a sunny 83 degrees. 

I told Allie yesterday that we'd keep today's sets easy. I could tell she was a little nervous, never having done something like this before. I assured her it would be easy, and even Kaycee was super nervous her first time, until she saw just how simple I keep things.

I met up with Allie and her boyfriend at 11:30 a.m. today and they followed me to where I wanted to shoot today's photos. With such a beautiful day, I knew people would be out and about. Trying to keep things simple, I decided to shoot at a waterfront boardwalk and trail along one of the many rivers in the area. From experience, I also know that the only people you usually see in this area are headed out to their boats and we wouldn't have to worry about prying eyes, or people being in our shots.

For today's first set I had Allie keep on the shoes and socks she was wearing when we met. I figured it would give her something to do in first set as she'd have multiple things to pull off her tiny feet.

After a quick rundown of what I do and how I shoot my sets, she was ready to go. Her boyfriend sat on a nearby bench and left us to shoot. Since we had never met, she asked if he could come along. I told her I usually don't have model's boyfriends along, but as long as he wasn't the jealous type, I'd be fine with it. After all, it was he who introduced her to Kaycee and Reagan, thus making our meeting one another possible. In the long run, it was nice having him along. We talked about movies and video games. I found myself bullshitting with him from time to time as we shot our sets. Anyhow, I'm sure you're more interested in the sets we shot, so onto the first one!

Allie began the set sitting on the bench with her feet down on the boardwalk. After a few shots, I had her bring her legs up onto the bench. I had her stick her feet out and slowly begin pulling off her shoes. Once we got to her socks, I had her give them a few playful tugs to finally reveal her small size 5's. They were cute and looked every bit as small as she told me they were. I told her about Alice and her size 11's, saying how awesome it would be to see the contrast between their feet in a set. Once I got home today, I sent Alice a text message telling her the same thing. Going to keep my fingers crossed for that team up!

I had Allie show off her little soles in a few different poses, using the arm rest, the back of the bench, and even laying across the bench itself. For her first set, she did well and didn't seem as nervous as I thought she might be. It was either that, or she was hiding it really well.

Once we finished up with the set, we did a quick video clip with her taking off her shoes and socks one last time. When that was done, we went back to our cars for her to change for the next set. I had only planned on doing two today so she could feel this all out and hopefully, plan some other shoots with me this summer. Getting use different locations and have her with different toenail polish colors for sets would provide some variety. She liked that idea too.

After a couple of minutes, the three of us walked down to the one pier that isn't gated and shot out on the water. For this set I asked her to wear a pair of flip flops she brought along. I thought it matched the summer weather and the waterfront location.

Allie kicked off her flip flops and shot her second set out on the water.

Having one set under her belt now, Allie seemed a little more comfortable as we began shooting. I had her doing some of her own poses at the end of the first set, so I told her to do some right off the bat for this one. I like seeing what my models will come up with because everyone thinks differently. Having done this for so many years, I feel I run the chance of doing the same poses time after time. Having my models strike poses on their own sometimes reminds me of ones I'm not thinking about, or even surprises me with something I've never seen or shot.

Since it was only 83 degrees today, the pier wasn't too hot and we weren't baking out in the cloudless sky. Allie and I moved around and shot different poses on the ground, both seated and laying, and then over by some of the pilings. We got in a good variation, even duplicating some shots with her flip flops on the first go around, and then with them off for the second.

When we wrapped up this set I mentioned how hungry I was and asked Allie and her boyfriend if they had eaten anything. They hadn't, so I asked if they wanted to head out and get something. Long story short, we wound up at a nearby Taco Bell and just talked about all different things. It was a good time and I'm very much looking forward to shooting Allie again. I haven't been able to schedule anything with Kaycee or Reagan yet this year, but we tossed around the idea of some team ups with one, or even both of them. She said she'd like that very much, as would I, and I'm sure, you would too. So, be on the lookout for more of Allie in the months to come! Her little feet are sure to be a favorite among many.

11 Fun Facts - All About Alice

Alice is this month's feature model on Wu's Feet Links.

To coincide with Alice's July 2017 Wu's Feet Links feature model gallery, "The SK8R Gal Who Wears Size 11 Skates," I have done a special Fun Facts blog focused solely on two of the biggest soles found on Soles of Silk. And just because those captivating feet are a whopping size 11, instead of the customary 10 random facts, I made it 11. I also made each fact based off of the number itself! Here they are:

Although not the first set on the site, this was the first set Alice shot in 2015.

1. One set. It took me all of one set to realize that I had a brand new model on my hands that I would love to shoot time and time again. It wasn't the warmest of days, but Alice shot a set along the water back in the spring of 2015 and I just loved being before her big, size 11 feet for the first time. From there we went on to do another set that is talked about below (#8, to be exact) and it became even more evident. Since then, she has gone on to model for 11 sets that first year, followed by 11 more the second. No model in the site's history has shot that many sets in her first two years. And so far this year she's already shot seven new ones!

2. Two for her debut two years ago. On May 6, 2015 Alice debuted her gorgeous size 11 feet for the first time. As I stated above, she hasn't looked back since!

Three for third. Alice is the third model to pose for Soles of Silk with size 11 feet. The two models who came before her were Molly and Bridgette - neither of which are actively modeling for the site today.

Alice once again, using scissors to send fellas a message.

4. Four sets were done at the beach on the day her 2017 Wu's Feet Links feature set. The first was the roller skate feature. The second (above), the Fourth of July, hot dog size tease set. The third, a shark bite themed set in the surf (coming to the site this week). And the final set, her wearing a T-shirt that read "Eat Me" while she got soaked in the Atlantic Ocean. For more information on these sets, be sure to check out the blog I wrote on the day after these amazing sets, "Sunday's Shoot - Alice."

Sounds yummy to me!

5. Five ingredients. Five ingredients are listed on Alice's "Eat Me" shirt that she wore at the beach. Those ingredients are: Carbohydrates 0 gm, Calories 0 gm, Fat 0 gm, Sugars 0 gm, and Wetness 100%. I don't know about you, but that sure does sound tasty! And Alice fell in love with this shirt and practically insisted I get it for one of her sets. She's so fun... and apparently wet! Yummy!

Alice introduced me to Leah and I immediately saw how fun they were together.

6. Six, as in Leah's size 6's. Leah was the second model Alice modeled with in a set. Leah was introduced to me by Alice and the two did a snowbunny Easter spin-off set that was one of the craziest two model sets I've done in some time. They were both licking each other's feet, eating the chocolates that were shoved between the other's toes. They then followed that set up on the same day by pulling off some over the knee socks at a local track where people looked on and wondered what the hell we were doing. All that being said, Leah was the second model to shoot with Alice, not the first. The first is found next, at number 7.

Talk about a size difference!

7. Seven, as in Camille's size 7's. Camille was the first model Alice modeled with in a set. It was truly amazing seeing her size 11 feet right beside Camille's smaller size 7's. Many of you ask for size compare shots and you can't go wrong when doing it with someone's feet as big as Alice's. Alice and I aim to keep this tradition going, pairing her with other models from the site. As you just read, Leah continued said trend, with feet even smaller than Camille's. Then Mindee did a set with size 8 feet next to Alice's during Part 5 of the Suite Feet Series back in May.

Alice has said numerous times that this is still one of her favorite sets she's ever done.

Eight chicken nuggets - two 4-pieces to be exact. This was the number of chicken nuggets Alice had at her disposal in one of her first ever sets. The set featured a fast food theme and saw some of those chicken nuggets between those long toes. I was lucky enough to eat a couple after they had been there too. The set itself, was an ode to a fellow foot fetish model we both adore, Whitney Morgan. I had showed Alice a shot of Whitney enjoying a McDonald's cheeseburger inside a car. We both loved it and decided to emulate the shot and do a little set carrying the theme.

9. Nine sets. The number of solo sets Alice modeled for in her first year shooting for Soles of Silk. She also did two sets with Camille, for a grand total of 11, but I have something else I want to say for fact number 11. So solo sets for number nine it is!

10. Ten, for size 10. Size 10 the most commonly given answer to the question, "In your opinion, what shoe size is the minimum to be considered 'big?'" when I interviewed six Wu's Feet Links Forum members for the column titled, "Bigger Feet = More! And More is Better..." This column told Alice's story about discovering just how sexy, and powerful, her feet are to many foot fetishists - something she discovered by modeling for Soles of Silk. Those six forum member interviews were featured in their entirety in another blog titled, "Big Female Feet Preference - The Interviews."

During our last shoot, Alice spoiled me with letting me to sniff her moist, sweaty feet & shoes.

11. How easy is this one? Eleven as in size 11. Although not my first model with size 11 feet, Alice's feet have easily captivated me like no other model with large feet ever has. I can't even describe how giddy I get when those tall, slender soles, and long toes are before me. I'm always in awe. This admiration for Alice is what led me to feature her on the Wu's Feet Links Interviews Blog back in 2016. She answered a good many questions about her having big feet and how shooting for me has opened her eyes to just how beautiful they truly are - something she didn't see until 2015. Be sure to give Alice's Interview a read, if you haven't already.

Monday's Shoot - Alice

It's been a couple of months since I've last had Alice in front of my camera. Since her 2015 debut, during the spring, summer, and fall months, that's not how things happen. She's always one to shoot regularly and as often as possible. Sometimes life, however, happens and we find ourselves busy. Well, I'm happy to say that Alice and I were able to meet up for a couple of quick sets and a much needed foot massage yesterday.

Monday's shoot wasn't even on my calendar until the day before. Alice and I were texting one another and she inquired about some dates this coming week. I told her they were already taken with other plans, so then she asked about Monday. I told her I also had plans that day, but I not until 3 p.m. She said she had to be at work at 4 p.m. anyhow, so if I was free, she'd be up for doing a couple of shoots earlier on. I said something along the lines of "Hell yeah!" and that was how it all came about. I had no idea what we'd shoot, or where we'd shoot it. I just knew that I was happy to be having her big size 11's before me in 24 hours.

Jumping forward to Monday, I picked up Alice around noon and we stopped for our regular McDonald's run. I honestly think she's got a McDonald's fetish! I gave her the choice of a few places and that's what she went with. I think we've stopped at a McDonald's on almost half her shoots, if not more, including that very first one where she had some burgers and nuggets in her set (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Alice").

Once we finished up eating, we decided to head to a park. It was a rather large park with lots of ball fields, picnic areas, playgrounds, and a stream surrounding most of it. I figured finding two spots to shoot there would come pretty easy. It did.

I couldn't wait to bury my nose into those warm shoes and Alice's moist feet.

The first spot we decided to use was a simple staircase. The stairs led from the parking lot up to the ball fields. I thought the railing would give some nice views of Alice's feet when propped up. I turned out to be right, even though we had to make sure Alice's "meow" was kept hidden since she was wearing a skirt. You really have to watch out for "kitties" sometimes. They're so cute and I like to make them purr, but no matter how many times you tell them no, they just do what they want! So Alice did her best to keep her "kitty" out of view. And yes, the puns here are just horrible! Moving on...

My favorite part of this shoot was the fact that Alice wore these shoes, without socks, the entire time we were together up until now. She had them on a little while before I picked her up too. Knowing how much Alice's feet sweat, I couldn't wait to be treated to those big damp soles and long toes. A little teasing was in order first.

I had Alice slowly remove both shoes at the same time in this set. Usually I have a model kick off one and then the other shoe. This time, both were slowly tugged from heel to toes together - at least in the beginning. Seeing both of her heels out and knowing what awaited inside was just great. I couldn't wait!

Once Alice had her shoes fully off her large feet, I gave them the shortest massage ever. It was more like a brushing of my hands. I told her it was my turn to tease and she'd get a better one later. She groaned in disappointment, but I smirked at her dismay. A few minutes later, I went to massage them again, and once more only gave her just a slight touch. She was eager now, but I made her wait until the first set was over.

When we had the set and clip finished, we went up the steps to a small area where Alice could sit down. She took a few photos, and then a video, of me down at her feet. Some of you might have already seen the video Alice posted of me with her feet on her Instagram (@Alice__Elevens). She has yet to send me the pictures, as I wanted to put up a few to the Soles of Silk account too (@SolesofSilk).

I'll tell you what, it was so fun being down at Alice's feet out in public. There wasn't a lot of people in the area, but I kind of wished there had been. A lot of models get embarrassed by having their sweaty feet in my face, especially with me intent on sniffing them, but not Alice. Nope. Alice enjoys it and takes pride in my love of her feet - even when moist and smelly, maybe even especially when they're like that. Of course, that's when I love them the most too, so I'm loving life when I get that chance. Might have to do this again where a few people can look on! What do you think, Alice?

After enjoying her feet with my nose I gave them the pampering they deserved. I rubbed them up and down, which is a lot of area to cover with size 11's. I love that about her feet though. So much more foot to run my hands over and the spaces between her toes are just great to lose my fingers between. Sadly, however, the massage couldn't last like the one I gave Melani two weeks ago (see blog: "Friday's Shoot - Melani"), lasting over an hour. We had to finish up so I wouldn't be late for my other plans, or Alice for work. If that had not been the case, I would have pampered her feet MUCH MUCH MORE!

Alice made a quick outfit change in my car and we looked for our next spot to shoot. I considered a picnic area, but we ultimately went down the trail to the creek below. The area looked nice, but it was a little on the darker side. Still, we made things work, but it wasn't easy.

Alice told me she was going to stick her feet up and out at me. I was like, "OK!!!!"

This location had some really steep grounding for me to stand. Some of the ground had also eroded away, so it wasn't the most compact and I was worried I might trip, if not careful. I put Alice up on an old crumbling landing area where a bridge once crossed the creek. That bridge is long gone, but the concrete areas on each bank still remained.

As we shot this set we heard faint hints of thunder off in the distance. The forecast had been changing in the days prior, but it said the rain was no longer in the region. Well, I guess they were wrong. We tried our best to get done quickly, but the worst it did was spit a little bit. Nothing really came down on us underneath all those trees. Still, at the time, we didn't know so we moved as fast as we could.

With this second set wrapped up, Alice and I made a long walk up the steep trail to my car. We were both sweating and all I could think of is, "Why didn't I have her walk some trails in her Converse first?" That would of been heavenly to pull her shoes off like that! I can't imagine how moist they would have been! Maybe next time?

Wu's Feature History - Alice (2017)

Back in 2013 I began a blog series that reviewed all of the Wu's Feet Links feature model galleries up to that point. Due to the time and dedication that I put into all of those galleries, I decided it would be a good idea to add to that series each and every year afterward. Well, it's time for yet another addition - one you've been following for 50 weeks now. The wait is finally over and Alice's set is finally here! 

Alice & I had a blast shooting this amazing, super colorful, set.

2017 Feature: The SK8R Gal Who Wears Size 11 Skates
Model: Alice
Shoe Size: 11
Set URL: (138 images)

For the last 50 weeks, thousands of people have followed along with the "Weekly Teaser - Alice's July 2017 Wu's Feet Links Feature." Whether it was a boring piece of the sky that was revealed, or a piece that showed Alice's skates or thigh high socks, the tease was a prolonged one. Well, that tease is now over and you have earned your reward - Alice's July 2017 feature set, "The SK8R Gal Who Wears Size 11 Skates," is now online.

The story behind Alice's sweaty feet in this set is one that began at the end of 2015. Already having asked Mindee to be the July 2016 feature, I had lots of time on my hands to figure out who would represent Soles of Silk in 2017. When the outpouring of love for Alice and her big size 11 feet flooded over me, I knew I had my model. I approached Alice about the idea and explained to her Mindee was already slated for 2016. If she'd like, however, 2017 would be hers. Alice, naturally, was flattered. But what would we do?

With so much time to figure things out, I honestly didn't put much thought into an idea right away. Alice, however, did. She suggested roller skates. I loved it! It was something I had toyed with doing in a set many years ago, but it never happened. Until Alice made mention of them, I had forgotten all about it too.

"I suggested to you that I wanted to do roller skates. We talked about it for a long time. I did not have a pair, and it was hard to find a pair that would fit my size 11 feet... of course. Then one day, I found out my best friend had an old pair and they were perfect," Alice explained in an interview about this shoot inside the Soles of Silk members section.

Now that we had an idea, we still had lots of time to think of a location. A few months went by and that was when I had the idea to shoot this set on the boardwalk. I had been to Seaside Heights, N.J. a few years prior with Aspen, and recalled that the end of their boardwalk was light on foot traffic. Alice had also talked about doing photos at a beach one day, so it just seemed perfect. We could make a day out of it. I mentioned it to Alice and she loved the idea. Now we had a theme and a spot. Only problem was, it was still Spring 2016. I haven't even shot Mindee's set for that year yet. And here I was having the following year's planned out already. Oh well, we'd just have to wait.

Wait we did, but not as long as I had anticipated. Alice mentioned having off on Sundays during the summer of 2016, so we made plans to go to the beach in August. We were going to shoot this early. I had only recently shot Mindee's set, "The Ferris-t of Them All," a few weeks prior and here I was shooting next year's. It's good to be prepared.

In the days leading up to Alice's feature set, I went to a few stores, both physical and online, and picked up some items I thought would make this set really pop. I love colorful sets and the idea to use rainbow, or multi-colored items was something I thought would really make this pop. Alice agreed. I bought some thigh high socks with rainbow stripes, some netted gloves, and numerous little extras that would really just add in more splashes of color. Little did I know, however, that Alice had dyed her hair a blue/purple combo. That just added even more color, and I thought it looked great.

We arrived at the beach early that morning. This set would be the first one we did. If it was going to be hot, I wanted to get this one done before the sun was at its worst. We parked and Alice changed into her clothes. She saved the skates, however, until we were up on the boardwalk. She was so eager to shoot this one too!

"I was extremely excited. It was our first shoot out of town, and I had never been to the Jersey Shore, so it was a lot of fun for me," Alice said.

Once I found the exact spot I wanted to shoot, Alice pulled on the skates. She mentioned that her feet were already getting sweaty in her long socks. I totally smiled on the inside, and probably the outside too. Her feet get really sweaty and I knew the skates would only make it worse - especially since I was going to have her keep them on for a good number of photos to start this off.

"It was a pretty warm day, so I was already naturally sweaty," Alice shared. "The socks and skates definitely enhanced it."

Loving the sight before me, I had Alice shoot in all kinds of poses. I knew I could do some artistic stuff with these shots too, so I did many similar poses in slight variations. The people that did walk by gave us a look or two, and some even told her how great she looked. She did, indeed!

Eventually it would become time for the skates to get pulled off. I had Alice sit up on a near by bench and start pulling those laces down. As I photographed those skates coming off, I just knew those feet were going to be so warm and so moist. I was exactly right! They felt amazing!

Alice's feet were so damp, you could easily see the outline of her feet through those socks. I reached my hand out a few times to feel how sweaty they were and Alice could only laugh and shake her head. I'm glad Alice has taken such a massive interest in this fetish and its various kinks because not only does she adore my love of her sweaty feet, she encourages it.

"The fact that someone adores something that I'm sometimes self conscious about, is so cute to me," Alice explained.

With her skates now free to air out inside, I knew Alice would be wanting to do the same to her bare feet. I gave her the nod to begin pulling the long socks down her legs, which once again, I photographed non-stop. Talk about a tease!

Once those feet were free, I had to rub them. They were soaked. I didn't care who walked by at the time. Alice's feet are beautiful, so the only thing they should have felt is jealousy. Being able to rub them is such a privilege and one I should spend a little more time thanking her for.

After a while I had to let go of Alice's lovely feet and pick the camera back up. After all, I'm sure you all wanted some barefoot shots from this set, right? So I did my duty and shot a bunch more shots before we wrapped things up with a matching video clip.

As we packed up our things, I knew I had probably shot the best Wu's Feet Links feature set I've done to do date. That's saying a lot as I've always went all out for all of my features, but this one I felt was going to be amazing the entire time while shooting. When Alice and I got back to the car, we looked over the shots and it only confirmed it even more. Of course Alice was the one cycling through the photos. I was giving those size 11's another massage like they so deserve!

"This is my favorite set that I've ever done," Alice said.

That's a statement I echo. Alice really brought it on that day as a whole, getting things kicked off in such a big way. If you're interested in finding out how the rest of the day went, check out the August 8, 2016 blog, "Sunday's Shoot - Alice." There you will be able to see samples from a few other amazing sets we did that day - some of which have been published to the site, and some which have not.

Alice's socks, feet, & skates were all so moist from sweat. It was a hot day, made even hotter!

This concludes the Wu's Feet Links Feature History series for now. I'm still thinking about who I will ask to be the 2018 feature model. Any suggestions?

Wednesday's Shoot - Reese

Last year Mindee introduced me to her friend, Reese, when she modeled her size 8 feet during Hot Feet Week 2016, Part 2. She did two solo sets and shot a set with Mindee and their mutual friend, Rein. That was the last time I shot Reese, until yesterday.

In our limited interaction during her first shoot I found Reese to be super sweet and down to earth. In the following months I found out that Reese was very busy between her family and her job. We were unable to schedule any shoots, but she always said she was looking forward to doing some more. Well, good things come to those who wait because she struck up a conversation with me over the phone earlier this week, telling me she had a few days open, if I was available.

Sadly, I was just finishing up my vacation and was back to work. I told her my schedule and said we could try to make something work out. She told me she had some open time Wednesday afternoon, so I made sure I opened up my schedule to match. I didn't have a ton of time between shifts at work, but I was not letting this opportunity pass me by. We made the plans and managed to get in two sets.

After picking up Reese at her house, we went to a park to see where we could shoot. When we arrived we found out that we had the park to ourselves. No one was there. I turned on some music on my phone and we jumped into her first set back since her debut.

It was fun seeing Reese pull off her sneakers and thigh high socks in her first set back.

In this set we went with a sporty theme. Always a fan of black and white together, I was happy to see Reese bring a mostly black outfit, along with some dark sneakers. At first we were thinking about using some black over the knee socks, but ultimately went with white thigh high socks with black stripes. I think the choice worked out better and it added some contrast.

Although Wednesday was hot, it wasn't as bad as it was last year when we shot. Tuesday, however, was just as bad and we originally thought about shooting that day. I'm so glad we waited that extra day, though. It was about 10 degrees cooler and the cloud cover kept the sun from beating down on us. It made this set much more comfortable, especially for Reese in her black attire and tall socks.

It took a little while to get both shoes and socks off Reese's legs and feet, but I'm sure none of you will complain watching it happen once it is published. I know I sure didn't mind how many photos it took to capture the process! Reese was having fun and I was enjoying the company. It was turning out to be quite a fun day.

Once we finished up with the photos, we shot a clip of Reese pulling her shoes and socks off once more. From there, it was time to begin our second, and final set of the day. Sadly I had to be back at work at 5 p.m. and it about 3 p.m.

Reese made a quick change of attire and we walked over to some benches on boardwalk. No one was there, except for a few fishermen way off in the distance. They couldn't see what we were up to and we wouldn't be disturbing them in any way. And with that, Reese sat down and pulled on her pointy black pumps. Set number two was about to begin.

Reese's black pumps hang from her big toes.

Since Reese was wearing a dress in this set, I kept the poses pretty basic here. I didn't want any upskirt shots, so I positioned myself down at her feet to begin. We shot a lot of shots with the heels on, then dangling from her feet. I thought they looked good with just a heel or an arch popping out.

Eventually, just like mostly all footwear in my sets, those pumps had to come off. Once they were, I got in numerous shots with those slender size 8's right up in the camera. We tried a few different angles here and I had her keep the shoes in the frame for most of them. I figured some of you would love her shoes too. I don't get to shoot pumps that often either, so that was something I was happy about.

As this set drew to a close, it began looking like it was going to rain. The forecast wasn't calling for it, but the clouds were getting thick. We shot our video clip and finished up for the day. I took Reese back home and made it back to work in time.

It was good seeing Reese again and getting in some new photos with her. I'm hoping to see her shoot again this year, maybe even doing some more with Mindee. Those two are good friends and I'm sure it would be a blast to hang out and shoot with them both together. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Monday's Shoot - Melani

Today... talk about a day that is hard to categorize! So many things went wrong, but some awesome things did result from the efforts. Still, I sit here drained and ready for bed. Still, I'm going to write this blog about the sets I shot with Melani about nine hours ago.

The day began when I picked up Melani around 10 a.m. Knowing the amount of time it would take to drive to our location of Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, there was no need to go super early. The sun wouldn't be in a good position to do anything on the beach looking out over the ocean, although it did kind of screw us over on our first shoot, which I'll get to below.

First however, let's talk about my back being super tight when I woke up. For some reason my lower back muscles were inflamed and sitting in the car wasn't helping. With a two hour and a half hour drive ahead, I ended up having to stop at a rest stop to get some pain relievers. I could barely keep up with Melani walking through the parking lot when we arrived. After a few minutes of being upright, however, my back felt fine. Still, I got the pain relievers and took a few. I'm never one to take any kind of medicine, but I didn't want to waste a day at the beach with Melani. We had some awesome ideas to put on camera.

Next on the "blah" list of today was when we arrived at Rehoboth Beach. We needed to pick up a couple of clothing items, so I headed down to the main drag and we hit up some stores. We were looking for either a watermelon themed bikini, or a cute pink or green one for one of the beach sets. We were also looking for one of those lifeguard themed swimsuits for the other. Well, we struck out time and time again, going into more than a dozen stores. We actually ended up going back into a few of them, one even three times, where we bought the final item needed for the lifeguard set, which wasn't a bikini because none of the stores sold them. 

Oh yeah, I almost forgot... In one of the stores, this ultra feminine older man bitched out loud at Melani and I. We were looking at the lifeguard themed clothing and I guess Melani didn't exactly fold the shirt back the way they had it. I thought it felt off onto the floor or something and apologized. He was like, "It didn't fall. It was thrown back on the shelf."

Umm, that wasn't the case, so I apologized again anyhow and said, "Wow, really, asshole?" on the way out of the store.

Anyhow, with the shopping now done, we were finally able to shoot. It was a little later than I had hoped, but I didn't think anything of it at the time. We drove down to the area I had planned on using, but were met with some more obstacles. The location I wanted was the very end of the boardwalk. I figured less people would be down there and we were going to do a jogging theme. Thankfully Melani had all those clothing items covered, looking back on that now! Ha ha!

Naturally this wouldn't be easy. There was nowhere to park when we arrived! We had to drive around for a while as everything was permit only. When we finally did find a spot, with a meter, it took only quarters. Thankfully, I keep change in my car for this sort of thing. And my quarters got me... seven minutes each! Seriously? Who comes up with that number? I had to feed a bunch of quarters in just to get enough time where I wouldn't have to worry about coming back to a ticket. Oh well, it was paid for and we were finally going to shoot.

Melani's first set was themed to jogging - something she does regularly.

When we got up to the boardwalk for this first set, the sun was not in an ideal spot. If benches had been on the other side of the boardwalk also, it would have worked. Already being so frustrated, I forced the set anyhow. It worked, but the color isn't up to my standards in every shot. Nevertheless, the set wasn't a waste and I should be able to bump some levels, exposures, and contrasts here and there to make the salvage some of the shots I'm not keen on due to the shadows and sunlight.

We shot this quickly and didn't even do a video clip. I wanted to get it over with and get down on the beach. The second set was one I had been looking forward to for a while and was the biggest reason we made the trip anyhow.

I drove down the road a bit to find a spot where not many people would be on the beach. I found one and was feeling really good about things. Finally, we caught a break. We got our stuff together, went down to the beach, but half way there, I realized I forgot one of the major props and had to run back to the car. This run included the sand (naturally), a large dune that meant an uphill climb, and then back over it again on the return. Why not? Today was going so well for me. Luckily I had Melani and her pretty little feet to look forward to. To top it off, she'd be in a bikini in this one, for the first time, and looking amazing. I soldiered on!

Melani looking so adorable in this watermelon themed set, which saw her smash some too.

As you can see by the sample shot above, the theme of this set was watermelons. I found a bunch of little props to use in this set over the last few weeks, but the one I had to run back to the car for was the watermelon pieces themselves. And oh yeah, we had to drive around to a couple stores to find that too, before we shot. Forgot to mention that!

Anyhow, I set things up and loved the sight of Melani before me. I knew this set was going to be good and was hands down the best one of the day, and one of the better ones I've taken in 2017. That's saying quite a bit because I've had some that I just adore already. This ranks up there for sure though! 

If you want to see her in a couple of other shots from this set, I posted two more to Instagram (@SolesofSilk) before I began this blog. I didn't want my phone full of sand so I didn't take it out on the beach. I ended up posting shots from this actual series, along with the others, from the day instead.

This set I also got a video clip. I couldn't resist her squishing those pink watermelon pieces in the bowl. Lots of juice was squeezed out under her little feet for that one. Once that was done, however, it was time for our final set. We wanted to do four sets, but during this one we decided to just do the lifeguard theme here on the beach too and call it a day.

After a trip back through the sand, up and over that dune (twice), we realized something that I had predicted would happen earlier. I had bought Melani two toe rings to wear for the day and we forgot to use them up until this point. It's happened before with other models and I said it would probably happen again. We put them in one of the bags with the outfits and forgot about them until we got to the lifeguard set below. More of this day just being amazing!

Melani's little feet were totally covered in sand in this final set of the day.

With her toe rings, lifeguard attire, and little red shoes on, Melani and I went back down to the beach and began shooting again. She looked great and the colors were again vibrant. Another great set was coming out of this difficult day. It didn't go off without a hitch, however.

During this set the salt water must have been reaching my camera. We weren't in the surf, but I noticed my camera lens getting a little cloudy. I tried my best to keep it wiped and dry, but it started to be a losing effort by the end. A couple of the photos from this set are a little hazy, but for the most part, the set also looks pretty good. Because of this, I also skipped on the clip here. I just wanted to relax and go eat at this point. So did Melani.

Since I'm really tired and want to get to bed, let me briefly say after this shoot, we got caught apparently not paying for parking at the beach here. We were just about to leave when a park ranger knocked on the door. It was an honor system sort of thing and I missed the sign for it. Being Maryland residents, it cost us more too. Oh well, fuck it. I paid it and we left to go find food, which was the a big ordeal too.

We drove to several locations to eat, but found 40 minute waits for tables when we arrived, or more seven minute per quarter parking meters. How could I figure out how much time it would take us to be sat and eat? We found a diner instead.

After we ate I felt like the day needed something else to feel like we went to the beach. I saw a miniature golf spot close by and we decided to go. When we got there, we paid, walked out into the course (which looked awesome), and there was a line of almost 30 people waiting to start playing. People were literally taking forever and by time we got to the first hole (about half an hour after arrival), we both hit our balls, finished the first hole, and got back in line for hole two. After five minutes we looked at the 15 or more people waiting to go and then at each other. We decided to just turn our clubs and balls in and leave. I didn't even try to see if I could get a refund. I just wanted to go. That was our awesome day at the beach nightcap. I shouldn't have been surprised, in all honesty.

From there, we got back in my car and headed home. Today was just not our day, but we still managed to get some photos I know you'll enjoy - especially that watermelon set. Oh well, I'm sure Melani and I will do some more awesome shoots and have much better days shooting ahead. Thanks for spending the day with me regardless, Melani. Hope you're fast asleep by this point. I'm about to join you in la-la land here soon! Sweet dreams!

Sunday's Shoot - Mindee & Her Mom, Shelby (New Model)

Well, Sunday, July 9, 2017 marks a first for me. Today I shot the site's first ever, mom and daughter combo. I've shot cousins, sisters, even twins, but never a mother and daughter - not even separately. Now I have! Please welcome to the site, Mindee's mom, Shelby.

I've known Ms. Shelby for years now. Mindee is one of my best friends and I've always been friendly with her family. Never did I think that one day, 13 years after Mindee modeled for her first ever photos for Soles of Silk, that her mom would one day join the roster too. Better late than never, huh?

Saturday evening I exchanged a number of texts with Mindee about today's shoot. I knew some possible themes, but I was honestly drawing a blank. I also didn't know how her mom would react to certain themes, or wearing certain footwear - such as stockings or thigh high socks. I had a bunch of them packed just in case, but like we've done so many times, Mindee said we'll figure it out tomorrow. That we did!

I arrived at Ms. Shelby's house around 1 p.m. She was finishing up getting ready. Today's plan was to shoot a solo set with Mindee to begin so that she could see what it was like. Mindee had given her some tips, but seeing it would be more beneficial. With that, Mindee grabbed a pair of socks from my bag with a little puppy dog on the tops of them and we set up shop on the porch swing out front.

Before we began, however, something quite funny happened. Mindee kicked off her sandals and commented that she needed some lotion. Now generally when this is said, that means I go get it and rub it on her feet. Today, however, I aimed to play a little game. Mindee, of course, blew up my spot!

I handed Mindee the lotion and she was like, "What? Really? Because my mom is here you're not going to do it?"

"Nope," I said.

Mindee laughed at me thinking that I was embarrassed. Maybe I was just a little, but I had a master plan. More on that in a bit. For now, it was time to begin shooting. Mindee and Ms. Shelby said not to worry about the next door neighbor out on the porch. I said, "okay," and we were on our way.

Mindee shooting first so her mom (not pictured) can see what it is like.

Within a minute of shooting, Mindee's mom was all over Mindee. She was straightening out her shirt, her hair, and telling her to adjust her boobs... Mindee just looked up like, "Mom! C'mon!"

After a couple more nitpicks by mom, Mindee pushed her away telling her we're never going to get any photos in if she doesn't stop. It was cute! I just laughed. For a change, Mindee wasn't the boss.

When we actually started shooting, the set went by quickly as all of Mindee's do. This set marked her 70th solo set that she's shot, plus all the ones she's done with other models from the site - now 12 different models in all. It goes without saying that I can just point my camera toward Mindee and just shoot whatever she does. I love that. We really do work well together.

During the set, even though the photos were flying by, I stopped from time to time to explain some things to Ms. Shelby. Things like the whole spread toes and scrunched toes poses came up as Mindee was doing them. These are things I take for granted with my regular models, but with a newbie, those details need to be explained.

Once the set was finished, it was time for Mindee's favorite part of shooting - video clips. Mindee always dreads these, but she loves me and does them anyhow. The socks went back on and Mindee pulled them back off in the clip. Ms. Shelby looked on and once we were done, it was her turn for a solo set.

Ms. Shelby kept her feet cool in the hot sun above in her first ever set for Soles of Silk.

For Ms. Shelby's first set we went out back to a little bar set up on the patio. We took out a pitcher of water, which we thought would be fun to pour all over her feet. She was also wearing a pair of flashy wedges that she really wanted to use in the set, so she started off with those.

Unlike Mindee's set, which took place in the shade, this one was done out in the bright, hot sun, while Mindee watched from under an umbrella at a nearby table. It must be nice to coach from the sidelines in the shade, huh? Anyhow, Mindee's mom sat up on the chair and were ready to begin... almost!

Remember how I mentioned above that Mindee was giving me crap for not rubbing lotion on her feet? Well, I went over and grabbed the lotion and gave her mom's feet a little rub instead. Mindee's face was priceless. Hey, I have to make her jealous somehow, right? Mindee knows I love her and will shoot her every day if I could. I have to knock her down a peg or two from time to time though. This did the trick! I figure I'll end up paying for it at some point, in all honesty. She won't forget! Now, however, it was time to begin.

I really liked how the gold of Ms. Shelby's shoes caught the sunlight, along with her blue toenails - the same exact blue Mindee had on hers. I did a number of close ups because of this, but before long, those shoes came off.

Once Ms. Shelby was barefoot, we moved her around the back of the bar area and propped her feet right up to the camera. She grabbed the pitcher of water and got her feet wet for the first time today. I say first time, because it happened again in the last set of the day too. It kinda sorta happened in the third set too, but not with water. More on that below.

Mindee's mom must have really paid attention to Mindee's prior set because I felt like I didn't have to give her many directions at all, especially for someone doing her first set. Sometimes I have to coach every pose, but not with her. That made this set go by quicker than I had thought, which was good because we were both feeling that sun!

With about three-quarters of the pitcher still full, we decided to go ahead and have her pour it out on her feet for the video clip. It was a lot of water, but she used every drop by the time it was over. With that, Ms. Shelby had finished her first set and clip and became the site's newest model. Now, however, it was time to cool off and figure out where we were going to shoot the first mother/daughter team up set.

We looked around out back, but ultimately decided to go back out onto the porch. It was much cooler and the sun wasn't beating down on us there. The porch swing was moved and I began setting up what I had planned on using for this set, two bubble blowing machines. 

Bubbles would be the theme of this set, but we had to make a few adjustments before we began. And, Mindee and Ms. Shelby both insisted that I give their feet a little lotion rub down first. Yup, another first! First ever, mother/daughter foot rub. Mindee insisted on taking a couple of photos of me in my glory too. At least I managed not to have my "shit eating grin," Mindee accused me of having when I shot her and Alice together during Part 5 of the Suite Feet series. Or maybe I've gotten better at hiding it?

This set was the first one I've done featuring a mother and daughter together.

The bubble blowers ended up working better than I had thought, but there was two major problems. The direction of the wind kept changing, making the bubbles blow into the camera, into Mindee's and Ms. Shelby's eyes, and totally out of the picture frame. The second issue was that they blew out so fast that they just became blurs in the photos. I didn't want to shoot on a super fast speed and compromise my depth of field, so we turned them off and the two of them just used their bubble wands instead. Oh well, my niece surely did appreciate the bubble blowers when I got home. They didn't go to waste.

The majority of this set involved me laying down before both women and shooting them blowing bubbles and sticking the long wands between their feet. I was a little embarrassed when they did some phallic looking poses, especially when Ms. Shelby's boyfriend came over and she made sure he saw her doing one. He laughed and told her to "get it!" Oh man, now I know where Mindee gets it from. Ms. Shelby tried to deny it, but I know!

We shot a few poses before we wrapped up this set with the both of them grabbing at and playing with each other's feet. Normally I suggest these poses, but since this was a mom/daughter set, I didn't. Sure, it would be cute, but I didn't want anyone feeling weirded out - this was Ms. Shelby's first shoot, after all. Well, that whole feeling was blown up when they bit each other's toes on their own. Yeah, it was only a photo or two, but they laughed their asses off as it happened, so it was all in good fun.

With the set complete, it was time for the video clip once again. Luckily for us, the dog inside stopped barking right before we shot. With it a little quieter than it was shooting the last few pictures, Mindee and her mom blew bubbles and wrapped the wands around each other's feet again. Some of the bubble juice was even poured onto their feet toward the end of the clip. It looked cute and that's why I said that Mindee's mom sorta kinda got her feet wet in this one too. When the clip was over, I made sure to snap a few pictures of them all wet and honestly, slimy. I didn't realize that the bubble mix would feel like that, but it did.

After putting everything on the porch back in place, we went out back to shoot the final set of the day. Ms. Shelby's feet were going to get wet once again, but so was all of her lower half, along with Mindee's too. This was another duel set with the both of them. It would take place inside a small blue kiddie pool. And that water was just a bit cold having just come from the hose.

How similar are the soles of this mother/daughter pairing?

I began this set with a few standing shots. Both ladies knew that when they put their butts down in the water, it was going to be just a little chilly. I let them prolong that for a few minutes, but eventually, those soles needed to be front and center. Down they went!

Both Mindee's and her mom's feet really came through as very similar in this set. I wasn't the only one who thought so either.

"Mindee definitely has her mom's feet," @kingdoug81 said under the pool photo on the Soles of Silk Instagram (@SolesofSilk) page.

I think it is the wrinkled soles that really show that off. With both women's toes scrunched, it's super evident. That's why I also posted a sample with that pose here on the blog. Even their toes are similar too, now that I think about it! What do you think? 

For most of this shoot water was spilling out of the pool. When both ladies got in, some spilled over the edge. We didn't put it on the most level of spots either, so that didn't help. So much water started spilling out when I had them put their heels on the edge, I had to go get a pool raft to lay on. The grass outside the pool was flooding out and I didn't have a change of clothes.

Thankfully the water made this set much more comfortable to shoot, even though that sun was still super bright and hot. We went through this set pretty quickly regardless and did the clip before wrapping things up. A lot more of water spilled out during that clip though. I was so glad to be on that raft for that!

With this set now in the books, all of us were a little beat and very hungry. We picked everything up and put it back in place. Mindee and Ms. Shelby went inside and put on dry clothes and the three of us, along with Ms. Shelby's boyfriend, went and got a much needed dinner. All of us left feeling super stuffed, but the food was great as was the company.

I want to thank Mindee for getting her mom to shoot these sets today. I don't know how hard she was to convince, but this isn't the first relative of Mindee's to appear on the site. Doesn't look like it will be the last either. 

If you're wondering, the following models are related to Mindee (in order of their debuts): Mariah (cousin), Marcy (cousin), Rilynn (sister-in-law), and now, Ms. Shelby (mother). I said it doesn't look like the last either because another one of Mindee's cousins is looking to shoot as well. More on that if/when it happens.

I would also like to thank Ms. Shelby too. I've known you for many years and didn't think I'd ever shoot you. I never thought it was something you'd be interested in, or we could have done this many years ago. Had that of happened, you could have gave Mindee a run for her "most photos on the site" title. You're always welcome to shoot again though. I hope you had a good time. Maybe next time it won't be so hot either!
