Soles of Silk - 2012's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

I always list the top three models for the Star Models blogs. Sometimes two models will tie for first, or second, but my aim is to feature three models in total. Well, when I began doing this retroactive series, I found that I had more ties than I had figured upon. This year was one of the years where I had a ton of ties. First place and second place were each taken by a single model, but the spot for the third model was a three way tie in itself. So get ready to read about a few more models than you're used to for this year's entry.

Now, onto 2012's Star Models*:



3. (tied) Jamie
Debuted: 2010
# of sets posed for in 2012: 6

With six sets, Jamie was back at it again in 2012 spending a good amount of time in front of my camera. She debuted back in 2010 by doing 10 sets, a record until this very year. In 2011, however, we only got together one time and shot two sets. She was away at school and we weren't able to find the time. We made up for it in 2012 though.

Jamie and I ventured out and about twice during the summer months while she was home from school. A few months later we did some sets at our friend's house after she finished her winter semester. As was always the case shooting Jamie, we probably could have done more, but we were both a sucker for spending a few hours doing foot rubs. Well, I did them. She sat back and loved the pampering. And yes, I loved them too!



3. (tied) Mileena
Debuted: 2011
# of sets posed for in 2012: 6

I have actually only shot with Mileena on three separate occasions. On two of those occasions, we made the most out of it and one of those times in 2012 just so happened to be one of the most memorable days of shooting I've ever had.

Mileena and I got up early one day during Fourth of July week and began our photo adventure. Our ultimate goal was shooting at Blackwater Falls in West Virginia. Being a little over four hours away, I mapped out a few other photographic locations to use along the way to break up the drive and get in some more photos. 

It was hot. It was muggy. But the day I spent with Mileena shooting all across Western Maryland and West Virginia was a day I'll never forget. Every set was amazing!



3. (tied) Nikki
Debuted: 2010
# of sets posed for in 2012: 6

In 2010 I was able to get someone I grew up with as a child to shoot photos for Soles of Silk. Nikki was the youngest of two sisters of one of my best friends growing up. She was super young back then, but she grew up into an attractive woman with some super cute feet. 

In 2012 we met up a few times and did some great sets. Just like Mileena above, we took off to Western Maryland for a few of those sets and then did some others around town when we didn't have as much time. It's hard to think that Nikki's older sister ragged on her for having ugly feet when she told her that I asked to shoot for Soles of Silk. That, I couldn't believe! Nikki's feet are adorable.



2. Aspen
Debuted: 2012
# of sets posed for in 2012: 8

Oh Aspen! I worked with Aspen for a few years. I nicknamed her "Cubster" because she was young and she made some joke about me being the boss lion one evening. We always got along and she was always the nicest of people you could ever meet. Knowing about my site from some of the other girls we worked with, namely Ryan, she wanted to shoot when she turned 18. Well, that happened in July of 2012. Armed with my brand new camera, Aspen shot a couple of sets for me during a mutual work break. The photo above is from her very first set ever - 18 for only a few hours at the time.

That entire summer Aspen and I tried and tried to plan a shoot in Seaside Heights, N.J. She wanted to do some sets in a bikini and I sure wanted to shoot them. Time and time again, it rained and we had to cancel. We finally made it happen the day following Labor Day though. I got in some amazing sets and had a blast spending the day with her. She even made me rub her feet the entire three hour ride home. Good thing I bought an automatic, huh? And yes, when I pulled up to her house, her feet were still in my lap and one of my hands was rubbing them.

Before the year was out Aspen and I took a trip to an amusement park and managed to get in some photos of her barefoot in front of several roller coasters. Then, before the end of the year, she teamed up with Ryan to do one of the most popular model combinations I've ever published to the site. Talk about the perfect set to theme to Christmas. It was a present that many didn't expect and sure did love.



1. Wendy
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2012: 11

Records are made to be broken and in 2012 Wendy edged Jamie's 10 set record by one. I couldn't think of a better person to break the record either. Wendy is someone who has been shooting for me since our college days. At that time I was running my free sites on Yahoo! Geocities before starting The 10 Little Piggies. Since her Soles of Silk debut, she's been one of my most regular models.

By topping this year's list, Wendy becomes the fourth model to make three appearances as a Star Model. It puts her in elite company with the likes of Madison, Layla, and Cierra. Wendy's 11 sets in 2012 came from three different meet ups. Each time we managed to do several sets. The first shoot was very early in the year, while it was still cold outside. We shot in a few different spots inside her new house. A few months later, in the spring, we met up again and shot all around town. Once summer came, we did it again, with me finding even more awesome spots to use as backgrounds. She even teased me saying that I knew more cool spots in her new hometown than she did. Yay for Google Earth!

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2013's Star Models.

* When I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models in 2015, I decided to list the three most photographed models of the year. When going back to do these blogs retroactively, it became apparent that there would be many ties. Due to this fact, you will often see more than three models featured.

Retroactive Star Model Leader Count (as of 2012)

This portion of the blog was added in November 2017 when I went back to do the Star Models of years past (2004-14). I wanted to see which models made the most appearances throughout the years and who actually shot the most, well, the most? Wanting to know this information, I decided to share the results at the conclusion of these blogs as they progress. I will include this on each and every installment moving forward.

Soles of Silk - 2011's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

Not since the site's earliest years did two brand new models tie for the top spot on a Star Models list. Here in 2011, it happened again. Rookies reigned supreme and two of the site's most photographed models followed them up, missing the top spot by only a single set.

Now, onto 2011's Star Models*:



2. (tied) Kayleigh
Debuted: 2009
# of sets posed for in 2011: 4

When I sat down to tally up all the Star Models for this retroactive series, I figured Kayleigh would be featured numerous times. After her debut in 2009, it seemed like she was regularly in front of my camera. While that was indeed the case, shooting three sets in 2009, seven sets in 2010, and four sets here in 2011, a few factors kept that from being true.

In her debut year, Kayleigh wasn't able to shoot until she turned 18 in October. She literally shot that very day. We were out on our friend's porch that very morning shooting Halloween themed sets. Then she'd also save my ass by doing a Christmas themed set that someone else flaked out on. So she shot a bunch real quick upon her debut. Still, it was too late in the year to really build up a count. Then, in 2010, she shot a bunch, but so did Cierra (8), Jordana (8), and Jamie (10) and she missed making the Star Model list by just one set.

Here in 2011, however, she finally get the attention she and her little feet deserve. Kayleigh was there for me whenever I asked and also came to me to shoot when she was free. Although only a Star Model once, I am thankful for so many great sets that she did for me up until this point and beyond.



2. (tied) Charlee
Debuted: 2009
# of sets posed for in 2011: 4

Oddly enough, Charlee finds herself in the same boat as Kayleigh. She was one of my regulars, shooting here and there, but just not enough to make any of the previous year's Star Model listings. In 2011, however, she got her due. We had a blast shooting some of Charlee's most popular sets, including one of my favorites, found above.

Oddly enough, the trend of Charlee shooting a good amount of sets, but falling just short didn't end here. She misses next year's list by a single set too! Poor Charlee!



1. (tied) Mileena
Debuted: 2011
# of sets posed for in 2011: 5

It took me a few years to land her, but Mileena finally agreed to shoot in 2011 and I jumped at the chance. I was so excited to make it happen that I took off an afternoon of work and we got started early that morning.

Mileena insisted that she do a shoot with my then car, a black 2004 Nissan 350-Z. She loved the car and if that's what she wanted, then I was fine by that. We even got chased off our first location shooting with my car, but that didn't stop us. It did make a slight delay, however, so perhaps had that not of happened, Mileena might have just finished this year's listing alone, instead of tied with Ryan (below).



1. (tied) Ryan
Debuted: 2011
# of sets posed for in 2011: 5

Debuts don't get any bigger than Ryan's. Although Jamie topped last year's Star Model list with 10 sets, and Ryan only did half that number, it was the way in which she came onto the scene that got everyone's attention. I had some ideas floating around in my head for a model to represent Soles of Silk in the July 2011 Wu's Feet Links feature set, but then it hit me. My friend Ryan was turning 18 just before the set needed to be submitted. What if I debuted her in the feature set? It had never been done before and I wasn't sure what Wu would think. I sent him a head shot of Ryan and told him my plan. He green lit the idea real quick upon seeing her photo and said he knew this was going to be big.

Well, big turned out to be an understatement. Ryan's debut set, "Sexiest Catch," caused an uproar. People wanted to see more of her and began joining Soles of Silk looking for content. Problem was, that was her only set. I quickly added a set of her on Soles of Silk itself the week following the feature, which the image above comes from. Both sets were massive hits and to this day, Ryan is one of the site's most beloved models.

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2012's Star Models.

Soles of Silk - 2010's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

Something happened in 2010 that had never happened before when it came to those who have been named Star Models. No model had shot 10 or more sets in a single calendar year until now. And the best thing about the model who accomplished this rare feat... she was brand new to the site and didn't start shooting until July!

Now, onto 2010's Star Models:



2. (tied) Cierra
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2010: 8

For the third straight year Cierra is one of Soles of Silk's Star Models. We began the year off early. We rented a hotel suite in Ocean City, Md. with the idea to shoot a Valentine's Day themed set in the room's heart shaped hot tub. That wasn't our only set, however, as we shot all over the room and got in some amazing sets. Of course, I also got in lots of time rubbing those sweaty feet of Cierra's before, during, and after those sets.

Although Cierra only topped the Star Model listings from 2008-10 once, it isn't hard to see just how amazing the run was. Coming in with 22 photo sets, no one else came close during that time period. Cierra was amazing and the wealth of photos that we shot put her well on the way to becoming the site's first ever inductee to the 2K Club (2,000 photo mark).



2. (tied) Jordana
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2010: 8

Making her second appearance as a Star Model, Jordana always came through with some amazing sets. In 2010 we met up a couple of times, instead of just once as we had in previous years. During those two meets we were able to shoot eight sets that were some of the best sets I captured of her. I'm sure we would have been able to do even more had I not spent hours rubbing her feet. Foot rubs with Jordana were the norm and who was I to complain? She sure didn't mind, often ending nights after our shoots by falling asleep with her feet in my loving hands.



1. Jamie
Debuted: 2010
# of sets posed for in 2010: 10

As of 2010 no model had ever debuted like Jamie. Turning 18 in July, the day after her birthday we were in Wildwood, N.J., a popular oceanfront town, shooting some amazing sets. I guess you can say, it helped Jamie make such a splash! Yeah, a horrible pun, but still true nonetheless.

We made the most of that day shooting five sets. Then in the weeks and months to come, Jamie was hitting me up asking if she could shoot some more. I said yes and we shot a few more, including the one above in our mutual friend's room of bobble heads. We weren't done yet, however, as she managed to get in some sets with another mutual friend, and fellow foot model, Charlee. I spent hours that day rubbing both of their feet as we shot, and then back at Charlee's place as the ladies enjoyed some pizza. Seriously, they sat there eating pizza and I took turns rubbing their feet. They... okay, we, were loving life!

Although both records of shooting 10 sets overall and 10 as a rookie will eventually be broken subsequent years, Jamie will always hold the honor of doing it first and setting a benchmark that few models have followed.

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2011's Star Models.

Soles of Silk - 2009's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

In 2005 I had two sisters featured as Star Models when Kimmie and Kellie both found their way in front of my camera a bunch of times that year. Jump ahead four years and in 2009 I have another sister duo featured as Star Models. These two aren't twins, but they sure were popular with everyone!

Now, onto 2009's Star Models:



2. (tied) Cierra
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2009: 5

In 2009 Cierra kept bringing it when it came to finding time to shoot with me. This is the second year in a row she can be found as one of Soles of Silk's Star Models. She topped the list in 2008. This year she tied with Layla (below) for second place, missing the top spot by only one set.

This won't be the last time you see Cierra named as a Star Model either. From 2008-10, Cierra was certainly an MVP of the site. In 2009 she also became the fifth model to appear in a Wu's Feet Links feature gallery, representing Soles of Silk, in the set, "Foot & Size Tease." She easily became one of my most popular models.



2. (tied) Layla
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2009: 5

Speaking of repeats, 2009 marks the third time Layla finds herself as a Star Model. She joins Madison as the only model (as of 2009) to be featured three times. When we shot, we tended to do it in chunks, which would run up her photo count quite easily. Add in the fact that she introduced me to her sister, Jaylee Austin, and it's easy to see why she ended up as a Star Model once again. What I didn't realize when sitting down to write this blog, however, was that Jaylee would also end up as a Star Model, beating out her very own sister by just one set.



1. Jaylee Austin
Debuted: 2009
# of sets posed for in 2009: 6

In 2009 Layla introduced me to her younger sister and got her to do some sets with me. Had it not been for Jaylee, I'm sure Layla would have shot more, but she wanted her sister to get some camera time in. Luckily for me, I was able to capture a few sets of them together as well. Shooting sisters is amazing! I've done it several times for the site and the duo of Jaylee and Layla was simply amazing.

We wasted no time feeding Jaylee to the wolves either. The set you see above, with Jaylee's feet smushing a cheesecake, was her first ever set. She was laughing so much and Layla was off to the side cracking up the entire time. Talk about a fun set I'll never forget.

Soles of Silk - 2008's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

In 2008 I met up with a handful of models and managed to come away with four sets of each of them - four to be exact. The fifth model on this year's list, however, shot nine sets to begin a three year run of shooting some of the site's best sets of the time period and doing so quite often.

Now, onto 2008's Star Models*:



2. (tied) Madison
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2008: 4

Madison becomes the first model to appear on a Star Model list three times in 2008. She might not have always shot the most the last few years, but she was overly consistent.

Sadly, this is Madison's final appearance on a Star Model list. She did continue to shoot for me through 2009, making her the site's most photographed model for the first five years. She'd even be featured on Wu's Feet Links as the March 2008 feature model, in the set, "Piggy Bank Piggies." I was so glad to have her represent the site in its third ever feature. Madison had done so much for me up until this point. The love and adulation from the fans was well deserved. I just wish she had never stopped!



2. (tied) Wendy
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2008: 4

Wendy and I continued getting together when we could to shoot in 2008. This makes for her second appearance on a Star Models list and not her last.

The sets that Wendy and I did in 2008 include several we did around her house, as well as a tailgating themed one she did with her friend, Nessa. That would be Nessa's only set, but it was really fun to shoot. Nessa was the second friend in as many years to shoot with Wendy. In 2007 she had introduced me to Ann as well.



2. (tied) Lady Steph
Debuted: 2008
# of sets posed for in 2008: 4

I met Lady Steph at a few local foot fetish parties I had attended at the invite of an old college friend. From there, we exchanged emails and decided to get together and shoot. We were already familiar with each other's work from Wu's Feet Links.

I can honestly say, Steph was one of the more energetic models I've gotten to meet who I didn't really know prior to shooting. She's full of ideas and loves putting her feet up to a camera! We only got together the one time here in 2008, but it was enough to come away with four awesome sets and land her a place on the Star Models list.



2. (tied) Jordana
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2008: 4

Jordana was someone who I met in 2006. She lived up in the Philadelphia region, so we had to plan out our shoots ahead of time to make sure our schedules matched up. We met up again here in 2008 when I rented out a fantasy suite themed to pirates.

I ended up shooting four sets of Jordana inside the suite that day. I tried to make the most of the evening with her. Naturally, however, some of that time was spent rubbing her beautiful feet for her. She loves foot rubs and would always lay back and let me rub hers for hours on end. Guess we could have gotten in several more sets, huh?



1. Cierra
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2008: 9

This marks Cierra's first time making one of the Star Models lists. Cierra was one of eight models to debut when the site launched in 2004. Until 2008, however, she was just a regular model for me. She'd shoot here and there and always do great stuff. Then that all changed!

For three straight years, starting in 2008, Cierra would go on a tear. She couldn't stop finding time for me and I couldn't stop agreeing to shoot her. She really came into her own and started building up so many photo shoots that I had to constantly keep her updated. As you can see above, and over the next two Star Models lists, Cierra kept bringing it!

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2009's Star Models.

* When I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models in 2015, I decided to list the three most photographed models of the year. When going back to do these blogs retroactively, it became apparent that there would be many ties. Due to this fact, you will often see more than three models featured.

This portion of the blog was added in November 2017 when I went back to do the Star Models of years past (2004-14). I wanted to see which models made the most appearances throughout the years and who actually shot the most, well, the most? Wanting to know this information, I decided to share the results at the conclusion of these blogs as they progress. I will include this on each and every installment moving forward.

Soles of Silk - 2007's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

In 2007, there were two models making their first appearance as a Star Model. Knowing all that has transpired on the site as of 2017, one of these two models will probably come as a shock. Some of you might think that she's been modeling for countless photos since she debuted in 2004. That's not the case though.

Now, onto 2007's Star Models:



2. (tied) Mindee
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2007: 5

And here she is! Mindee! Hard to believe that the site's most photographed model (as of 2017) didn't make it onto a Star Model listing until three years in. It's true, however. At the start, Mindee didn't really like her feet and only agreed to model for me because I was her friend and I convinced her that I really needed her.

I'd say 2007 was about the time Mindee really began to come into her own and understand that she has some awesomely beautiful feet. Between them and her ever loving (and teasing) attitude she has toward me, she was becoming one of the site's more popular models. While she doesn't go on to appear on another Star Model list again until 2013, Mindee did start becoming a regular - just not the photo count monster that she is today!



2. (tied) Layla
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2007: 5

Layla and I seemed to shoot in spurts. When we did shoot, however, we'd get a few sets in and make the most of the time together. You see, she and I lived about an hour and a half apart. While not the worst drive ever, with schedules, family, and work, we just couldn't get together as often as we'd like. Still, just like she did in 2005, Layla kicked some major ass with some awesome sets in 2007.

The set above was an instant favorite when I shot it. Layla and I went to a basketball court to begin, but people came by almost immediately. We moved to the tennis court and that's where I captured her super sweaty feet. If there was a Hall of Fame for Layla sets, this one would be in there easily.



1. Abby
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2007: 7

For being the woman who got this whole foot fetish photography thing rolling back in the late-90's when we dated each other, Abby took a couple of years to really make a splash on Soles of Silk. I didn't have her shooting when the site launched in 2004. Instead, she came a year later and we'd shoot here and there over the years.

In 2007, however, Abby shot a number of photos and even helped me land Tiff and Taylor. She did sets with both of them as well, which really helped make her set count rise. Sadly, however, my original foot model from my teenage years, only appears once on the Star Model lists (as of 2017).

Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Soles of Silk's history. I always aim to give my models as much credit as possible. Without them, Soles of Silk wouldn't be what it is. Please be sure to check out the next retroactive installment where I cover 2008's Star Models.

Soles of Silk - 2006's Star Models

Beginning in 2015 I began naming Soles of Silk's Star Models, which was a listing of the three models who shot the most photos that calendar year. While putting together 2017's Star Model list, I began to wonder just who the site's Star Models were from 2004-14. That curiosity got the best of me and I decided to go ahead and retroactively name those star models in a blog series. I had quite a few surprises along the way too. (Remember: These are sets shot, not published during the course of the year.)

The third year shooting for Soles of Silk saw only one new model (sort of) make it to the Star Models list. The other three became the first ever to repeat, one of which repeating first place appearances. The 2006 Star Models list sure does feature some of the site's most recognized models, by both the sheer number of photos they've done as well as their popularity with the fans.

Now, onto 2006's Star Models*:



2. (tied) Molly
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2006: 5

Two years on the site and two years as a Star Model. Molly loved shooting and in 2005 I got the chance to go to the beach with her and her husband. We stayed at a condo owned by their family and naturally, I brought my camera along.

I shot a couple of sets the first day out on the beach. Later on that day we came back to the condo and I got to shoot some awesome indoor sets. I would have came away with more, but Molly introduced me to her friend, Bethany, during the trip and she agreed to shoot for me the second day. Had that not of happened, Molly would have done more without question. It all turned out good though because Bethany was adorable and a blast to shoot.



2. (tied) Madison
Debuted: 2004
# of sets posed for in 2006: 5

She topped 2004's Star Model list, but new models in 2005 sprang up and filled 2005's. Madison, who I figured would top these lists the first few years came one set short of doing so here in 2006. Nevertheless, she did some amazing work in 2006.

Many of you will probably remember the image being the site's splash page graphic for many years. This is one of my favorite sets that I did with Madison, which is saying a lot because we did a ton that I loved. I'm sure the constant foot rubs, smelling, and goofiness we had when shooting also led to some downtime that could have seen her do another set or two easily. Oh well...



2. (tied) Wendy
Debuted: 2006
# of sets posed for in 2006: 5

Here is the only new model to appear on this year's list. I say new, but in all reality, Wendy shot for my old site, The 10 Little Piggies, in the late 90's. She was one of the most popular models on the site back then, so I was so glad to have her back shooting for Soles of Silk.

Wendy and I made the most of her first year on the site getting in five sets. Like the models above, she only missed the first place spot by a single set. I made sure we got in some sets knowing how popular she was on the first go around with a web site. My gut feeling told me she'd be just as popular, if not more. I turned out to be right on the money. She was massively over and quite a few people remembered her from my old site.



1. Kellie
Debuted: 2005
# of sets posed for in 2006: 6

Kellie becomes the first model to place first in two different Star Model listings as well as the first to do it in back-to-back years. She just loved shooting for me and I, obviously, adored shooting her.

In 2006 Kellie and I made a trip to the beach and got in some really fun sets. The one above was perhaps the most daring set I had done to date. It's not every day you see someone sitting on the boardwalk at a popular beach town stepping in funnel cake. I love funnel cake...

Needless to say, the constant fan reaction to Kellie's work made me only want to shoot her more. While this will be her final appearance (as of 2017) as a Star Model, she continued to model for me, just not as often as we did this early on.
