1,000 Toes In: The First 100 Models of Soles of Silk, Pt. 3 (Camille - Danaya)

Welcome to the third installment of the "1,000 Toes In" blog series. This series celebrates on each of the first 100 models to appear on Soles of Silk. All of these models deserve all the praise I will throw their way in these 10 blog entries. Please be sure to check out all the previous entries, as well as any newer ones, once they're published. Now, onto the next 10 models on Soles of Silk:

Camille (size 7)
Model #: 88
Debut Date: August 26, 2015
Published Sets: 6 
Published Photos: 402
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2016 (4th)
Other Notables: Kayleigh's younger sister. Rose's cousin.

Camille and I used to work together, just like her older sister, Kayleigh. Knowing about Soles of Silk through her sister, Camille was interested in shooting soon after her 18th birthday. We didn't shoot immediately after, but she did end up tagging along on a shoot that saw her team up with our mutual friend, and at the time, mutual coworker, Alice. The two shot some solo sets as well as a couple of multi-model sets that featured some amazing size comparison shots. With Camille's size 7's next to Alice's size 11's, it was a sight to behold.

Not too long after her shoot, Camille moved across the country and I honestly thought I'd never get the chance to shoot her again. I told her that if she were to ever come home to visit family, I'd like to get some time in to shoot with her again. I even tossed around the idea of heading out her way for a little vacation and shoot combo. I never made it out her way, but she did come home and get in some shoot time with me in 2017.

Just this week, Camille got married and she mentioned several weeks prior that she wasn't sure if she'd be shooting anymore moving forward. She enjoys it, but her now-husband isn't too keen on it. I respect her honesty, but am saddened that I never got to team her up with Kayleigh for that Dream Duo team up from my "Dream Duo's #3" blog. Although... Kayleigh and Camille have another sister who just might shoot this year too. Man, it would have been awesome to have a three sister shoot. It would have been a first for the site.

Carlin (size 6.5)
Model #: 65
Debut Date: September 15, 2010
Published Sets: 10 
Published Photos: 615
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2010 (7th), 2011 (7th), 2012 (2nd)

When I finally got to shoot Carlin in 2010, I felt like I had hit the lottery. You see, I always thought Carlin was a cutie in high school. We didn't know each other and not being in the same grade or classes, I never introduced myself. It was either those reasons, or I was just a pussy.

Fast forward a number of years and through our mutual friend, Carmen, Carlin knows all about Soles of Silk. At first she was not able to shoot, but eventually decided to do so. I still remember her first day. She was so nervous and I was so ecstatic, but not trying to show it. We did several shoots and I went home knowing I had a great new model on the site.

Over the next two years, Carlin shot several more times, getting in her 10 photo sets and 615 photos listed above. We keep saying how we need to shoot, but never seem to make plans. She has a lot going on, but we do hit each other up from time to time. I really need to make plans with her. Maybe I should just put out some dates and tell her to pick one? Sometimes it's just best to say "let's do this" instead of talking about it all the time. 

I really hope we can find the time to shoot again as Carlin isn't just a beautiful model for my site, but someone I always liked hanging out with for a few hours and being nerds with. She loves comics, art, writing, and we just get along so very well. It would be nice to see her and catch up after a six year hiatus!

Carmen (size 5.5)
Model #: 10
Debut Date: January 19, 2005
Published Sets: 10 
Published Photos: 515
Wu's Feet Links Features: "Blue Jeans & Toes" (2005)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2005 (2nd, 3rd)
Other Notables: First Soles of Silk model to be featured in a Wu's Feet Links feature set representing, Soles of Silk. Appeared in the site's first ever, 4-model set with Kimmie, Kellie, and Cheri.

And here is the person who introduced me to Carlin, up above. Carmen shot for Soles of Silk immediately following it's launch. I wanted her for the launch, but due to some relationship issues, she wasn't able to shoot. When she freed herself from that relationship, she came right to me and asked to be a part of the site. Only problem was, it was early January and cold! She didn't care, though, and we shot several sets downtown shortly after the new year.

Carmen was an immediate success upon her debut. She loved all the feedback she was getting and even stopped by the Soles of Silk Forum found on the Wu's Feet Links Forum. She's say hello to everyone from time to time for the first few years, as did a couple other models. She had a blast being a part of all this, but then up and moved about 8-10 hours away. We remained friends, but I wasn't sure if I'd get the chance to shoot her again.

Fast forward a few years and Carmen told me about her plans to come home to visit family. During the visit she wanted to shoot. Of course I opened up my schedule for such an event and we got in a handful of photos over the course of a two days. Sadly, those photos would be the last time we shot. We've grown apart and only say hello to each other from time to time online. I don't know what she's up to these days, but I'll always cherish my memories of Carmen - one of my go-to female friends for quite some time. She was adorable and I do miss her company and conversations. If she ever came back and shot new photos, I would make it a massive event. Think I should try?

Charlee (size 7.5)
Model #: 55
Debut Date: September 16, 2009
Published Sets: 25 
Published Photos: 1,693
K Clubs: 1K (2013)
Star Model Accolades: 2011 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2011 (6th, 8th)
Other Notables: Has enough unpublished photos currently shot to put her into the 2K Club in the near future.

Ah, Charlee! A former coworker and now, longtime friend of mine who just loves getting in front of the camera, and all the foot rubs I treat her to before, during, and after our shoots. Okay, every set we shoot! Yes, I've truly spent countless hours down at her smooth size 7.5 feet. Come to think of it, I haven't spent enough time before them. Good thing we shoot a lot!

As you can see, Charlee is a member of the 1K Club, earning entry in 2013. Here, in 2018, she's 307 photos shy of becoming only the third model, behind Cierra and Mindee, to enter the 2K Club. With 12 unpublished sets waiting to go onto the site, it goes without saying that she already has enough content shot to make that happen. Hell, she has enough to put her well on her way to becoming only the second model to enter the 3K Club behind Mindee. Knowing Charlee, she's be intent on making that happen, for sure. Yay for more photos and foot rubs coming my way!

I can always count on Charlee for some great photos and a day of fun. I've always enjoyed spending time with her and going on little adventures. She's someone who is always honest, but caring at the same time. It's so nice to have her still shooting for me approaching 10 years now.

Cheri (size 4.5)
Model #: 19
Debut Date: June 15, 2005
Published Sets: 4 
Published Photos: 204
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2005 (2nd)
Other Notables: Debuted in the site's first ever, 4-model set with Kimmie, Kellie, and Carmen. Currently tied with A'Kasjia for smallest feet on the site.

Cheri and her little feet sure were hard to land, and even harder to schedule with after her debut. I know many of you were happy to see a model of East Indian descent on the site, so I had really hoped to shoot with her more. Timing and missed opportunities made sure that didn't happen, however. This former coworker did manage to get her size 4.5 feet into four sets though. I still get asked about her to this day. Most ask if she'll ever shoot again. At this point, that looks highly doubtful.

Chloe (size 8.5)
Model #: 17
Debut Date: June 8, 2005
Published Sets: 9 
Published Photos: 547
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2005 (9th), 2007 (2nd)

Chloe is another in the long list of models in this series who used to work with me. She was someone who I also hung out with outside of work, doing things such as hitting up movies, amusement parks, and going out to eat with other friends. When I asked her if she'd like to shoot for Soles of Silk, she was so excited. She even got her friend, Meagan, to come along and join in. Although I only shot with Meagan that one time, Chloe went on to shoot several sets over the next few years.

Chloe is someone many of you loved, which only made her enjoy doing this even more. I always adored her feet, myself, and she just loved getting them into my hands once I put the camera down, or when we hung out. I figured she'd end up being one of my regulars for many years to come, but after she got a new job, we began to lose touch. I still see her from time to time, but we haven't really had much more than a passing, "Hello, how are you?" type of conversation.

Chrystine (size 8)
Model #: 43
Debut Date: September 26, 2007
Published Sets: 5 
Published Photos: 308
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2007 (6th), 2009 (4th)
Other Notables: Also appeared on Layla's former website.

This blonde cutie was introduced to me via Layla. Layla and I were shooting quite a bit for a number of years and she asked me several times if I would be interested in shooting someone else that she knew, or had coming by to shoot for her former site. Chrystine was was of those models.

I had never met Chrystine prior to the day I drove out to Layla's, but I was instantly comfortable with her from the start. She was super sweet and fun to be around. She had fun in front of my camera and I got in a few solo sets as well as a couple of her alongside Layla. Those sets all happened the first and only time I ever got to shoot with her. We kept in touch online for a short time following her shoot, but that was over 10 years ago now and I couldn't tell you what she's up to these days, or even if she's still modeling.

Cierra (size 6)
Model #: 4
Debut Date: December 29, 2004
Published Sets: 38 
Published Photos: 2,439
K Clubs: 1K (2009), 2K (2011)
Wu's Feet Links Features: "Foot & Size Tease" (2009)
Star Model Accolades: 2008 (1st), 2009 (2nd), 2010 (2nd)
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2004 (7th), 2005 (10th), 2008 (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th), 2010 (2nd, 3rd), 2015 (2nd, 2rd), 2016 (8th)
Other Notables: Site debut model. First model to join the 2K Club. Reached the 1K Club with the posting of her 2009 Wu's Feet Links feature. Held the mantle of the site's most photographed model for a period of time. Loves stepping in food... a lot! Has the sweatiest feet I have ever encounter.

There is so much I could say about Cierra in regards to who she is and what she's done for Soles of Silk. As you can see above, she's one of the site's original eight models and over the years, she's racked up quite the resume. I could go on forever about her and all that she's done, but I want to keep things brief for each model in this blog series.

Cierra shot for me when I didn't even have a site to show - just some samples photos of the three models I shot before her. Little did I know, at the time, she'd be just one of two models from the site's launch to shoot regularly up until this day, with the other being Mindee. And although she hasn't shot since 2015, I still consider her an active model because she's been going through a lot and we just haven't been able to schedule anything. She still wants to shoot, so I think I should give her some dates and try to make things happen.

Over these last 14 years, Cierra has been one of the models who are most associated with Soles of Silk. In the site's earliest years, Madison, Kellie, and Layla were three of my most photographed models. Then Cierra began shooting at such a pace she would eventually become the first model to join the 2K Club. She held that spot alone for some time, until Mindee made it her mission to become the site's most photographed model. We all know how much she shoots these days!

I'm hoping to get in some camera time with Cierra again and am probably going to hit her up once I finish up this blog entry. I miss her and those trademark, sweaty feet. I know it's tough for her to find time to shoot, but I'll take whatever I can get. Even if we shot 5 sets of her on the couch with different themes, I'll take it. I'd love to have Cierra's photo count rise again.

Colleen (size 8.5)
Model #: 54
Debut Date: July 8, 2009
Published Sets: 8 
Published Photos: 511
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2010 (4th), 2011 (3rd), 2013 (3rd)

Hey! Look! Another former coworker! I told you that this would be a trend. Colleen is the seventh model on this entry alone who used to work with me at some point in time. Hell, she's the 17th in the blog series up to this point and we're only on the third installment.

Colleen is someone who I always thought to be beautiful, but outside of work, we didn't really hang out much. When she became friends with Kelsey, eventually she and I became closer and she agreed to shoot for me. Her first time she came out with Kelsey and I and the plan was to do a solo set with each, followed by a duo set. We ran out of sunlight to do the duo, which I still wish I had gotten in to this day. I was never able to get the two of them together again.

Colleen has shot for me several times since her debut, always doing great shots. You can see she had regular appearances in my annual 10 Favorite Photo Sets blogs when she was shooting with me on a regular basis. Sadly, however, it's been five years since our last shoot. We haven't worked together in years, and although we were shooting after she left, we slowly grew apart. Good news, however! I recently hit her up and she said she's game for a comeback. We didn't set anything up yet, but I'm sure hoping this happens and I'm obviously looking forward to more awesome sets with her and her slender size 8.5's.

Danaya (size 6)
Model #: 28
Debut Date: April 26, 2006
Published Sets: 2
Published Photos: 92
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances2006 (10th)
Other Notables: Has appeared on other foot fetish sites.

I met Danaya through a photographer/web master that she used to work with on another site. He put us in touch and I found out that she lived only 15 minutes away. We made plans to shoot at her place one night and we hit it off quite nicely. I loved her little size 6 feet and wanted to make her a regular on Soles of Silk. 

The reason why that never ultimately happened, however, was because of a computer failure I had years ago. I lost a lot of my email contacts and it took me some time to retrieve them. When I hit up the photographer who put Danaya and I in touch to begin with, he made it known that the two of them no longer got along. I was left without her information, just hoping that she'd hit me up instead. That never happened and those size 6 beauties above only ever made the two appearances on the site.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the 10 models above. Be on the lookout for Part 4 of this 10 part blog series in the days to come.

Monday's Shoot - Ava & Carmella (New Model)

For those of you who follow along with this blog, and the site's Instagram (@SolesofSilk) or Twitter (@SolesofSilk), you know that I shot a friend of mine named Ava last week (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Ava"). At the conclusion of that blog I stated that the next time Ava and I shot, we might be including a mutual friend of ours. Well, today we shot again and that friend came and shot as well. Her name is Carmella and she has size 5 feet. You'll be seeing her and those itty bitty feet in just a moment. First, a little bit of backstory.

Both Ava and Carmella worked with me up until last year. Carmella got herself a new job and Ava has been off attending college, before coming back recently. Before that happened, however, both of these ladies turned 18 and I offered both of them a spot on the site's model roster. Carmella showed initial interest, but wasn't 100 percent sure. I told her that I'd rather not shoot her until she was. A short time later, Ava took me up on the offer, but we ran out of time to shoot before she left for school.

Now that Ava is back, we were finally able to shoot her first sets last week. With Ava and Carmella being such good friends, I think Ava's experiences made Carmella decide to go ahead and shoot as well. So hey, I got both these ladies at 19 instead of 18. Oh well! Good things come to those who wait, though! Now I have two more friends of mine on the site, and by the looks of it, they both liked shooting and will continue to do so. I'm sure they'll both desire a day that isn't so hot next time, though.

My initial plan was to shoot these two at noon, but the night before they asked if we could bump things up time to either 11 a.m. or 10 a.m. Having to close at work the night before, and always one to stay up late, I gave the girls a bit of crap, but told them I would make that happen. I did run a few minutes late, but hey, it turned out to be better as the temperature kept rising by the hour today. Guess we should have started at 9 a.m. and we wouldn't have been so sweaty! Although... you fans of sneakers and no socks are going to love knowing the final set today, the one that was done when it was at its hottest, had that theme. So maybe it was better off having that one done at that time frame, huh? More on that in a bit.

Ava listening to some music while us foot guys stare at her size 9 soles.

First up today was Ava. With this being Carmella's first shoot, I wanted her to see how I shoot my sets by watching Ava. Ava was my "veteran" today with a whopping two sets to her name. Yeah, she's a newbie too, but it didn't take Ava long to catch on last week. She asks questions, gives suggestions, and really has fun shooting. I can't emphasize that enough. She's texted me a few times to tell me as much since last week. I'm always glad to have my models enjoy this as I love spending the day with friends, doing something that I love, and just having a good time.

For Ava's set I didn't have her go with any footwear. This was a basic barefoot set, but one where we did a little bit of a theme. Ava brought along her headphones and a Bluetooth speaker. In this set, she was going to be listening to some tunes and putting on a little foot show. She put in the earbuds and stuck her feet out while I did my thing. This set was so basic, but tell me that all you foot guys out there wouldn't be sitting there watching a barefoot woman, like Ava, with her feet out, just like the photo above, if you came across her out in public.

The set went off without a hitch, although someone walking a dog did come by during the filming of the clip. It's become a running gag at this point that whenever it comes time to film a clip, I'm going to experience some kind of disturbance. Whether it's someone coming by, or some loud, oftentimes random noises, it's going to happen when I switch the camera into video mode. Oh well. I'm sure he saw me following Ava's big feet with my camera. Hopefully he was a foot guy too and enjoyed the view. I know I did and many of you would have as well.

Carmella with one of her thigh high socks off her leg and foot, with one left to go.

With it being so hot, I decided to just shoot Carmella in the same exact spot as Ava. The two switched places and now it was Carmella's time to show off her feet for the very first time - a much smaller pair of size 5's, however. And believe me, they're look every bit as small as they look. They were so tiny only inches away from my camera. She is proud, however, that they're "as soft as a baby's ass," her words, not mine. She made that claim last night in a group text and I can vouch that they indeed are. Both girls' feet are very soft, to be honest.

Carmella began her set in her thigh high socks, which ultimately got pulled off throughout the set. She was worried that she was going to be really hot in those black socks. I assured her they wouldn't stay on long, but also knew that having her feet get nice and warm inside them wouldn't be a bad thing either.

When Carmella's little soles popped into view for the first time, I knew the next set, when both girls had their feet paired up, was going to offer a major size difference. A lot of you ask for that and I've been able to get a few team ups in the past with models having feet that were vastly different in size. Today was another major score for that request.

Carmella's video faired a little bit better. No one came by, but naturally we did get a car alarm going off across the river. I'm telling you... every time!

With all three of us hot, and both girls needing to change before the next set, we decided to take a few minute break in my car before shooting the final set of the day. The plans for the final set were to be a two girl set that would have both of them in sneakers and no socks. This was almost a theme Ava and I did last week, but diverted from for other themes. I'm glad that was the case as having two sets of feet coming out of sneakers only made it better.

After our break was over, and a short walk to a pier, we began shooting. I had already went over what I was looking for with this set in the car. I didn't want to be out in the heat any longer than we had to be. We were all hot and I was asking for a sunburn, since I didn't put on any sunscreen, so we jumped right into the set.

Ava grabbed Carmella's little foot for a fun photo and I just love how it came out.

Naturally the girls began the set in their sneakers. They had been wearing them since we got back to the car. With the temperature and the walk to the pier, naturally their feet got nice and hot inside their shoes. I know they were looking forward to getting them off. To have a little bit of fun, however, I had them each pop each other's feet out of their shoes. They didn't remove them fully, though. I just had them pop their heels out and then kick off their own shoes in the photos following. I thought a little bit of interaction would be nice. It was Ava's idea for the fun photo above, which turned out quite nice! I wish I had shot a few more like it, seeing it now. Maybe next time?

This set went by very fast and we shot the clip immediately following. I let the girls splash some water on their hot feet to cool them off. And now that I think about it, I don't think we had any disturbances during the clip. I'm surprised someone's boat wasn't sinking in the background, or a flock of angry geese didn't come by squawking and shitting all over the place. I get lucky every so often, I guess!

Today turned out to be another good day of photos that I was able to squeeze in with some friends. I haven't shot a ton of sets this year, since I'm sitting on so many with all I did in 2017. Still, I'm trying to get in a few new models, some unique sets with regulars, and have even been talking with several models who haven't shot in years for some upcoming shoots. So be on the lookout for new shoot blogs to come. Welcome Carmella to Soles of Silk and be sure to check out Ava's solo debut on the Wednesday, June 20, 2018 update. Carmella will follow her up on June 27.

1,000 Toes In: The First 100 Models of Soles of Silk, Pt. 2 (Ann - Briezzy Lane)

Welcome to the second installment of the "1,000 Toes In" blog series. This series celebrates on each of the first 100 models to appear on Soles of Silk. All of these models deserve all the praise I will throw their way in these 10 blog entries. Please be sure to check out all the previous entries, as well as any newer ones, once they're published. Now, onto the next 10 models on Soles of Silk:

Ann (size 7.5)
Model #: 40
Debut Date: April 11, 2007
Published Sets: 3
Published Photos: 142

I only had the pleasure of shooting Ann one time. I was introduced to her through Wendy. They were friends and Wendy asked me if I was interested in having Ann come on board. I told her I trusted her judgement and would love to add a new model to the site.

I began the day shooting Wendy and then Ann came by later. With Wendy's second set of the day wrapping up, Ann got to do her first one for the site (above). Shortly after, however, Ann saw just how crazy things could get. Wendy and her teamed up for a set that saw the two with a large bowl full of macaroni and cheese. All four of their feet got pushed into the bowl and there was so much cheesy goodness clumped up between all 20 of their precious toes.

That was the last time I ever saw Ann, or really had any contact with her. I don't know if she's still friends with Wendy as I'm not in regular contact with Wendy these days either, sadly.

Ashlyn (size 5)
Model #: 77
Debut Date: August 28, 2013
Published Sets: 6     
Published Photos: 321
Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2013 (9th), 2015 (9th)
Other Notables: Has really smelly boots.

I remember the first time I saw Ashlyn, the older sister of a coworker of mine. She was with her family and came into our workplace. I thought she looked cute and wanted to ask her so bad if she'd be willing to shoot. Long story, short, however, she ended up being a friend of Ryan's. I asked Ryan to see if she'd be interested in shooting and the rest is history.

Our first shoot together was one I will never forget. She came out of her house barefoot and walked across the road, to my car, and got in. I immediately thought to myself, "Great, now her feet are going to be dry and dirty." That wasn't to be, however. They were still soft and smooth. Ashlyn admitted to me that she walks around barefoot all the time, so her feet are used to it.

When we got to our shoot location, the first set saw Ashlyn with a pair of boots that she brought along, which she slipped into while we were still in the car. After a little bit of a walk around the park, we sat down and began shooting. As the set progressed, and the boots came off, I could immediately smell them. They were strong and smelled like Fritos corn chips. Mind you, we were in a flower garden, and I could no longer smell the flowers. It was so fun and I've teased her about it ever since.

Ashlyn and I only got to shoot one additional time following that first day, but we have finally made plans to shoot again after a number of years. I'm so excited to be shooting this fun loving female again. I've always found her to be so beautiful and fun to be around. I hope she manages to schedule with me a few more times this year and build up a nice collection of new photos to add to the site.

Aspen (size 8)
Model #: 70
Debut Date: August 8, 2012
Published Sets: 12     
Published Photos: 949
Wu's Feet Links Features: All American Feet (July 2013)
Star Model Accolades: 2012 (2nd)
Set Blogs Appearances: 2012 (1st & 8th), 2013 (7th)
Other Notables: Shot her first sets one day after her 18th birthday.. Only 51 photos shy of joining the 1K Club (1,000 photos). Always made me rub her feet, which she called "paws," since I nicknamed her "Cubster," back when we worked together.

I had such high hopes for Aspen. This girl wanted to shoot for me so bad before she was even old enough. She was friends with numerous other girls at our work, who also shot for me. Her desire to shoot was so high that she waited only one day after turning 18 to show off her soft, luscious soles for the first time. Had she not had plans on the actual day she turned 18, she said she would have shot on that day instead.

Needless to say, Aspen was an instant hit. She's still one of the most popular models to ever appear on my site. She did a bunch of photos during her initial year of 2012, including a memorable Christmas one with Ryan. Talk about a team up people couldn't get enough of! She also placed second to Wendy that year in the Star Model rankings. In 2013, she also shot often and then... gone!

I had always considered Aspen to be a very good friend, but for some reason she just up and changed her group of friends and rarely ever kept in touch with me, or several others. I kept asking her if she'd like to shoot again, and even managed to get sporadic replies from her, but no follow up once dates and times begin being mentioned. It's frustrating!

I actually texted her tonight to see if I could swing a shoot or two with her during an upcoming vacation of mine. I'm trying to shoot some models I haven't gotten to work with in a while and I told her I'd very much like for her to be one of them. It also bugs me like no other than she's only a single set away from breaking the 1,000 photo mark and joining the 1K Club.

Audrey (size 9)
Model #: 100
Debut Date: June 6, 2018

Other Notables: 100th model to appear on the site.

The beautiful big feet above belong to the model who holds the distinction of being the 100th model to shoot for Soles of Silk. They belong to Audrey, a fun loving female who reached out to me in an email to ask about shooting for the site. Her sister, who knows a couple of people who have shot, told her about Soles of Silk and told her to check it out. I'm so damn glad she did!

Audrey admitted to being a little unsure about shooting, at first. By the end of her first, she was having a blast and we were all joking like we've known each other for a while. I said "we were all" because her sister, who also is very pretty, with cute feet, came along too. Her sister did not shoot though, but I told Audrey to tell her she's always welcome, if she ever wants to. She would have made for a good 100, 101 punch for the model count.

In the weeks to come, Audrey and I have come up with several fun shoot ideas and a few messy ones too. One of them even has quite the naughty connotation to it. She really liked some of the shirts that Mia Kay wore in her first sets (see blog: "Sunday's Shoot - Mia Kay"), and now it looks like she's got one for herself coming up. I can't wait!

Autumn (size 8.5)
Model #: 35
Debut Date: February 21, 2007
Published Sets: 4     
Published Photos: 232

Autumn and I are coworkers and have been friends for over a decade now. She's always been a very quiet, very private person. She doesn't bother anyone and never gets involved in drama. Although we were friends, I never approached her about shooting for the longest time. When I was discussing shooting new models one day with Abby at work, she mentioned Autumn as a possibility. I told her I wasn't sure she'd do it, so Abby decided to feel her out for me.

Long story short, Autumn was, more or less, waiting for me to ask her for some time. When I told her I just figured she'd say no, she rolled her eyes at me and shook her head. Soon thereafter, Autumn and I were doing her first ever photos and she become the 35th model to appear on the site.

Autumn and I only shot four total sets over several years. She got a new job, but does still work with me part time. I've asked her about shooting a few times, several years ago, but didn't seem to be into the idea. She didn't say no, but I felt like her body language said it for her. Some people just move on, or change their mind. I think Autumn is one such person.

Barbie (size 6)

Annual Top 10 Favorite Photo Set Blogs Appearances: 2008 (5th)
Other Notables: Has appeared on numerous other foot fetish and fetish sites over the years.

This adorable blonde, named Barbie, I only met with once. It only took me that one day, however, to become such a huge fan of her little feet and cute smile. She was travelling with Danielle, shooting with other photographers. When Danielle asked me if I'd like to shoot her, along with another model, who turned out to be Barbie, I took them up on the offer. They thought it might be nice to have a second photographer present during one of their stops so neither of them would have downtime as the other shot. I wound up getting a couple of sets with each model, as well as one of the two together.

Barbie was a hit for the site when she debuted in 2008. Even though she lived a few hours away, I had hoped I could meet up with her again. Her size 6's were adorable and would have looked great in regular sets over the years. Sadly, that was not to be the case.

Other Notables: Natalie's cousin.

During a visit to the beach to meet up with, and shoot, Molly, I was introduced to her friend, Bethany. Her, and her then boyfriend, came to Molly's condo and we all hung out one night in the hot tub. I was immediately taken back by how cute Bethany was. She was quiet and shy, but deep down inside, I wondered if she'd be up for shooting. I didn't bring it up, however, since her boyfriend was present.

As the night went on, Molly brought it up instead, telling her all about it and how much fun it was. Before Bethany left that night, she agreed to come back the next day to shoot for me. Talk about lucking out as I had already done some wonderful sets with Molly, and now, I was getting a brand new model that I didn't expect, and a damn cute one at that.

Bethany turned out to be so fun to shoot and we got along quite well. Like so many other models, I hoped she would become a regular on the site. For a while, it looked like she might. She did live a couple hours away, but still managed to be a part of the site's second ever, four model set. That set also included Molly, and Madison, and Lauryn, and was themed to Christmas. Then Bethany got her equally attractive cousin, Natalie, to shoot as well. That would be our last shoot together. From what I understand, I think Bethany has moved to the west coast, or did for some time. I have not been in touch with her in many years.

Other NotablesDebuted with a Fourth of July themed update (seen above).

I worked with Bobbie for a couple of years. We always got along and sometimes hung out together with the same group of friends. For the majority of that time, however, she knew about my site, but didn't shoot for it. Years later, she became single and decided to give it a try.

In all honesty, I loved shooting with Bobbie. She was worried she wouldn't photograph well, as being in front of the camera was never something she clamored for. She did great though and had a lot of fans. They loved her and her feet. We shot a couple of times and after she got a new job, we sort of lost touch. I still speak to her from time to time and we've tossed around the idea of shooting again, which she always says she wants to do. It just never happens. Perhaps I need to reach out again and try to get some dates planned.

Other Notables: Felicia's twin sister. Debuted with a Christmas themed set, followed by a New Year's themed set, both with Felicia. Currently tied with Alice and Molly for biggest feet on the site.

Bridgette and I used to work together and her twin sister, Felicia, and I still do. I worked with both at once and eventually Felicia began shooting for Soles of Silk. Bridgette, however, took some time to come around.

It was ultimately Felicia who got her sister to come aboard and be presented as a Christmas and New Year's gift in consecutive updates at the end of 2014. People loved those sets, although some question if they are in fact, twins. Kimmie and Kellie, the first set of twins to appear on the site are identical, where as Bridgette and Felicia are fraternal. Still twins, nonetheless.

I was glad to have Bridgette shoot for the site as I knew she had big feet. I always used to tease her about them at work and I knew there would certainly be fans of them when her sets made their way onto the site. I ended up being right and hoped to see Bridgette make regular appearances, but that turned out not to be the case. It seems like a few boyfriends over the years have been behind her reluctance to shoot again. The door, however, is always open should that ever change.

Briezzy Lane (size 8.5)
Model #: 53
Debut Date: May 25, 2009
Published Sets: 3     
Published Photos: 126

Briezzy Lane is another model I only met with once and someone I met through another model of mine. Jordana and I would try to get together whenever we found ourselves in the other's neck of the woods. On one pass through, Jordana asked me if I'd be interested in shooting some photos with her friend, who was traveling with her. She told me that her name was Briezzy and she was just getting into modeling. I said sure and made my way down to see them one evening after work.

As always, my photos with Jordana looked great. When Briezzy shot, I couldn't believe just how long her toes were. I knew I had something special for all the fans of long toes out there. When she spread them, look out! Just look at that photo above. Those things separate so far from one another! It's a thing of beauty!

I shot two solo sets with Briezzy that evening as well as a set of the two together. I really loved the duo set as they poured lotion all over their feet and I watched them slip all about. That, however, was the last time I saw Briezzy and those long toes.

I hope you enjoyed this look at the 10 models above. Be on the lookout for Part 3 of this 10 part blog series in the days to come.
