Preview - Melani's March to 1K

This set will be Melani's first during Melani's March to 1K.

I like to give credit where it is due. Last year Melani was a huge addition to Soles of Silk. Only 18 at the time (turned 19 this month), she quickly fell in love with shooting after her April 12, 2017 debut. It didn't take her long to catch on and begin to see just how cute her little size 6 feet truly were. Many of you were a huge part of that with all your positive comments and likes on the Soles of Silk social media accounts, mainly on Instagram (@SolesofSilk). Many of her photos reach over 1,000 likes whenever I post them at this point.

Now, however, it's time to focus on another 1,000. Sitting at 510 photos at the time of writing this, Melani has so many more sets waiting to be published. Her joining of the 1K Club is only a matter of time since she has enough photos in waiting to make that happen. Melani shot a total of 21 sets last year, of which only seven are currently published. Those published numbers are about to get bigger!

For the entirety of March, Melani will be the sole focus (pun intended). The March 7, 14, 21, and 28 updates will all feature Melani. I'm calling this endeavour, Melani's March to 1K.

While this four week focus on Melani won't see her break the 1K mark, it's going to inch her ever so close! By the time April arrives, she will have a few hundred more photos on the site coming from five new sets. Yes, I said five. You can see the first week's set featured above, and the three that will follow below. Where the fifth set comes in is during the same week as week four's set. During the shooting of the video clip after that set, Melani shot photos of her own feet. I thought it would be neat to showcase those photos in a fifth, bonus gallery. I figured you would all like to see them.

This coming month will be a memorable one with lots of amazing photos. I have never published the same model for more than two consecutive weeks up until this point. I just know that if Melani is anything like she was last year, she's going to be eating up a lot of camera time again in 2018. I have to get some of these sets online, plus, many of you have been asking to see some of these sets for months. Best of all... there will still be plenty of sets yet to come!

Dream Duos #6 - Alice & Maya

Welcome to the sixth installment in an ongoing blog series here on the Soles of Silk Blog. In this series I take a look at two models on the site who I'd love to see shoot together someday.

Alice (left)
Shoe Size: 11
Debut: May 6, 2015
# of Photos on Site: 1,573
Other Models Shot WithCamille, Leah, & Mindee

Maya (right)
Shoe Size: 7.5
Debut: February 14, 2018
# of Photos on Site: 65
Other Models Shot With: none

Some pairings just make sense for so many reasons. This pairing makes sense for at least 20 reasons... 20 long, okay, very long reasons! If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm talking toes here - 20 of the longest toes on Soles of Silk. The first 10 belong to Alice and her big size 11's. The second 10 are newbies to the site and belong to Maya and her slender size 7.5 feet.

In the almost three years that Alice has been modeling for Soles of Silk, her big feet and long toes have become objects of my affection. She helped show me just how pretty big feet and long toes can be. In turn, she's also become very proud of them and their size - something she used to be teased and embarrassed about. I'm glad she's come to embrace just how sexy her feet are and she's always ready to show them off in all their glory. We often focus on the fact that she's a size 11 and has very long toes in her shoots. She's done size comparison shots with Camille, Leah, and Mindee - dwarfing all of their feet. We also love showcasing her long toes with different props and poses and every time we do, Alice owns it!

When Maya finally decided to model for me, I already knew that she had long toes as well. I found that out a few years ago during a two and a half hour car ride. We were coming back from a day trip to Six Flags Great Adventure with Ryan and her boyfriend. He drove and Ryan had shotgun. Maya and I were in the back and I managed to get one of Maya's shoes and socks off and began rubbing her foot. She wouldn't give me the second one, but I wouldn't give back the one in my possession. So yeah, a foot rub on a single foot for two and a half hours... strange, I know! Still, it's one of those stories we can laugh about today. And just a little tidbit, she now expects both of them to be rubbed when we get together to shoot. So we've made progress!

Although 20 long toes wiggling, spreading, and scrunching throughout any set would be reason enough to shoot this pairing, it's not the sole (pun intended) reason I want them together. You see, both Alice and Maya used to work with me. We are all friends, so I know they'd get along and have a blast doing sets together. Both are fun loving, down to earth, and sure don't mind putting their photographer on blast either. I can only imagine how much fun this duo would be. If I can get them together, I want to shoot them together a few times. It would be too good to do just once!

The original plan for Maya's first shoot actually involved Alice, but some plans just weren't lining up correctly. We postponed the team up, but I really wanted to get in a Valentine's Day themed set in 2018. Talking with Maya after those plans had been postponed, we ended up making some other last minute plans instead. She really wanted to shoot and I was looking forward to her debut. If you want to read a little more about that day, check out the blog, "Sunday's Shoot - Maya."

I am sure that this team up will happen at some point, probably even sooner rather than later. I can't wait and have already got some ideas in mind to play off both ladies' lovely long toes. I thank both of them for sharing them with me and I can't wait to see them all side by side, or maybe even entwined together! Oh the possibilities...

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.

Results - The Annual Soles of Silk Trivia Contest - 2017 Edition

Another year, another trivia contest in the books. There are quite a few people out there who look forward to these annual contests and tell me how they appreciate the chance to win free membership. That makes all this worth it to me. It keeps people looking at all the great content the models have shot, the blogs that I have written, and gives me another means to interact with those of you out there who participate.

This year's contest did not result in any perfect scores. I had a couple of people come close, but just miss. Only three points separated the two 3-month prizes winners from two of the three 2-month prize winners. Even though there was not a perfect score this year, the scores were overall higher than in years past. It was a good showing from everyone who participated.

As is customary, I will leave the correct answers to all the trivia questions down below in red, along with the percentage of people who got the question correct. I did have a lot of these questions set up with the idea of being able to award partial credit for getting a portion of the answer correct. That happened quite a bit and might have been a huge part as to why scores were up this year (instead of an all or nothing type of question).

Now, onto the answers for the Annual Soles of Silk Trivia Contest - 2017 Edition:

Monday's Shoot - Mindee & Reese

I had Monday off and Mindee and I decided we were going to hang out and catch up. If we could do photos, awesome, if not, oh well. She's a good friend of mine and the last time we got to hang out and do anything was late last year when she did her last four sets to reach 40 for 2017 (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Mindee & Her Quest for 40"). 

So far in 2018 I haven't been active with shoots. The only one I've done so far this year was when Maya debuted last week (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Maya"). Work has kept me busy and life has been, well, life. What I've been able to do, I've squeezed in when I can. So if Monday resulted in a set or two, that would rock. If not, I was also fine with just going out and grabbing a bite to eat with my most photographed model. Well, long story short, it resulted in two sets and with two models. Surprise, surprise! Reese was also free for the evening and the two had been wanting to shoot together, so I said, "Why not?"

After meeting up with Mindee and Reese we stopped for a quick dinner. None of us had ate and I was actually looking forward to sitting down and spending time with Mindee. Having Reese there was great too because I don't get to see her too much with her busy schedule. We didn't want to take too long, however, as we had a grocery store stop to make. What did we need? Well, you'll just have to wait to the second set down below to find out. It sure was yummy though!

Rubbing all this lotion into Mindee's & Reese's feet was awesome after the set.

Fast forward a bit and I had both Mindee and Reese in front of me, ready for the first set of the evening. It was nothing complicated or overly themed, just a set with some lotion... Okay, a LOT of lotion! Hey, I didn't tell them to use so much, they just went crazy. Actually, I had to tell Reese to slow down as she was going to go all out before I even took my first photo of her putting it onto Mindee's feet. These two... I tell ya! I've said it before, but it's so true. Shooting two friends is always the recipe for success with multi-model sets. The chemistry is already there and they just have a blast. That's exactly what happened here.

Once this first set ended, the ladies began looking at some stuff on Mindee's phone. With four feet totally coated with lotion before me, what else could I do but massage them? Mindee and Reese seemed almost to expect it. I bet if I hadn't taken them into my hands myself, they would have told me to do so.

I don't know how long I rubbed all four of their feet, but it was easily over half an hour. Mindee mentioned having to move to the next set, but Reese said she was kind of enjoying this. A few minutes more passed, but Mindee was ultimately right. We had a second set to shoot and it was starting to get late.

I moved all of my lights into Reese's kitchen. We were going to have them sit up on the table. Reese was taken back as that was just something she found weird. Well, it was about to get a whole lot more weird as we had bought a red velvet cake and they were both going to smash it under their feet. Reese had pleaded to pick something less messy as she a bit of a clean freak and doesn't like sticky stuff, or big messes. Oops!

"She'll live," Mindee said when I asked her if she thought if Reese would do a messy food set earlier in the day.

Reese sure didn't think she'd be doing this set on Monday!

Mindee's peer pressure ultimately proved to work as this set saw the both of them perched high up on the table. Mindee swiped a finger into the cake, which she wiped across Reese's sole. Obviously, Reese's reactions were priceless. She seemed to both be having fun, but hating every minute of it at the same time. When it came time for her feet to enter the cake, however, Reese was nothing but laughs. Mindee pushed her to squish the cake even more and before I knew it, both of them had their feet caked, pun intended, in red velvet.

Being such a fan of red velvet cake, I swiped my fingers into their toes to get a taste. There was so much in between all 20 of their toes. Mindee just shook her head, knowing me all too well. Reese laughed even more in surprise that I'd eat something that was between her toes. It tasted good though! No regrets...

With this second set over and in the book it came time to clean up for the night. Both of them ran off to the bathroom with paper towels wrapped around their feet while I cleaned off the table and floor. I'm surprised the mess was so well contained!

I'm glad today ended up resulting in some photos with both Mindee and Reese. I'm always looking to shoot Mindee whenever we have time. Reese and I have been wanting to shoot a little bit more, so hopefully these will be two of many that we get to do in 2018. She just might not want to smash any other grocery items right away!
