Monday's Shoot - Mindee & Kaycee (Monthly Shoot Challenge - February)

What a day! Seriously, what a day! 

Just five days ago I wrote, "Dream Duos #7 - Mindee & Kaycee," and shared with all of you that I had been talking with the both of them about shooting soon. Well, guess what? It happened!

Today I was able to pair up two of the site's most photographed and most popular models for the very first time. Having Mindee and Kaycee shoot together, as those of you who read that Dream Duos blog know, was something I have wanted to happen for years. Good things do come to those who wait because today was better than good, it was amazing!

The three of us were slated to meet up around 5 p.m. There was a problem, though. I had ordered a number of clothing items for this set from Amazon. The socks came on Thursday of last week and the shorts, two days later on Saturday. The most important piece, the shirts, however, were listed as "arriving by 8 p.m. Monday." I had a bad feeling they wouldn't be in, or worse yet, arrive shortly after I left to go shoot.

At 3:30 p.m. I was starting to panic. I began texting replacement set ideas to the girls, but Mindee, as she always does, kept her cool. She said they'll be in and not to worry. That's when I saw it!

A brown UPS truck a flew blocks away was dropping off packages. I looked on my Amazon app and saw that the package was being shipped by UPS. I went back in the house for a few minutes and low and behold, he parked right out front. He stepped off the truck and I met him on the porch. I was now holding the final piece of Mindee's and Kaycee's outfit for their set - a set I knew was going to be too cute for words. Words, however, were written across these two shirts - words that read, "Kiss my feet."

I shot a quick text message to both Mindee and Kaycee in a group chat and they were so happy that the shirts came in. I told them I was going to run to the store real quick and then head to Mindee's place. I wanted to see if I could find a couple last minute props for our second set. What I went to Mindee's house with, however, was not those props I had intended to buy. Instead, I found some flashy looking shoes that both girls thought looked really fun. I grabbed them and was on my way.

After Kaycee and I arrived at Mindee's place, the two of them helped me assemble my light kit in Mindee's new bedroom. She, and her husband, have put so much time and effort into their new place. They put in some nice recessed lighting too that brightening up the room quite a bit. I asked her if she planned that with that with our shoots in mind. 

"Of course," she said.

Kaycee & Mindee being a little bratty in their first set together.

Once Mindee and Kaycee got dressed, the first set of the day was underway. This was the set I was scared that we wouldn't get to shoot, but things worked out and am I ever glad they did! This set was one I won't soon forget. With every shot I took I knew I had a classic in the making. My SD card was filling up with one hell of a set and I knew it! Throughout the set I kept showing the two of them some of the photos and they were both loving the outcome as well. I was already imagining photos from this set adorning the site's header bar or splash page at some point. Yes, I love this set that damn much!

Aside from having two of my best friends barefoot in front of me, one of my favorite aspects of this set was the chemistry between these two. This was their first time shooting together, but there was certainly fun loving attitude going on here that was coming across in every. I guess that's what happens when you pair up a model in the 6K Club (Mindee) with one in the 1K Club (Kaycee). 

Naturally, I did not want this set to end. We did have a second set to do, however, so we wrapped things up and shot a video clip. I then stepped out for them to get changed once more.

I couldn't resist having Mindee & Kaycee wear these shoes when I saw them.

For this set, there was no matching clothes Their shoes, however, were another story. They were just so flashy and funky looking and the girls adored them. Not bad for a $5 pair of shoes from Five Below, huh? I love that store for cheap and easy to find props for my sets. They have been a destination many of times before a shoot and today was no different.

Both Mindee and Kaycee shoved their feet into the shoes and sat up on the bed waiting for me. I didn't want any socks for this set, but the funny thing is, I never once said that to them. They just pulled the shoes on and were ready to go. Neither of them had put socks on and neither one of them asked if they should. I guess at this point both ladies know I like their feet warm, moist, and sweaty.

Whenever I shoot a shoes and no socks set, I tend to milk out the time a bit before the shoes come off. It gives the models' feet time to warm up. At this point, I'm sure both Mindee and Kaycee are well aware of this tactic too. We talked for a bit before getting underway. I couldn't delay too much, however. So I just made sure to prolong the shoe removal itself. It worked too as both of their feet were a little warm and Kaycee's were even a little moist in between her toes.

The chemistry from the first set was still on exhibit here. Mindee and Kaycee were having a blast, especially when they stuck their shoes in each other's faces for a smell. I just tried my best to capture it all to share with all of you. I wish they had shared the smell of their shoes though. Oh well, I'll make sure that happens on a nice hot day down the road.

Once this set wrapped up, it was 8 p.m. We were done after two sets. We shot our second clip and packed up the light kit. Would I have liked to have done more sets? You bet your ass! Especially after the phenomenal results from the two that we did today. Work and life, however, had us on a tight schedule.

As we were leaving, Mindee and Kaycee remarked how much fun they had shooting together, which I also echoed. I knew today's efforts would only strengthen both of their amazing resumes on the site. Mindee and Kaycee already have so many awesome, memorable sets to their name. Today's shoots will certainly rank among my favorites for both once they are published. That's saying something too with all the great stuff they've already done.

I truly cannot wait to shoot with these two again. I recommended that we make this a regular thing and the two of them agreed 100 percent. If these two sets are any indication, the other themes I have in mind are going to be quite memorable - and even a "tiny" bit teasing. I can't wait!

Today's shoot kept Mindee and I on schedule for her Monthly Shoot Challenge. For those of you who might not have read, "Sunday's Shoot - Mindee (Monthly Shoot Challenge - January)" last month, Mindee and I are attempting to get in at least one set every month during 2019. We've done so many other things since 2004, so this is our cute little idea for 2019. Two months down and we're right on track.

Dream Duos #7 - Mindee & Kaycee

Welcome to the seventh 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.

Mindee (left)
Shoe Size8
DebutDecember 29, 2004
# of Photos on Site6,102
Other Models Shot WithCierra, Marcy, Mariah (set lost), Emerald, Kelsey, Reese, Rein, Rilynn, Noelle, Shelby, Melani, Alice, Dolly

Kaycee (right)
Shoe Size7.5
DebutJuly 9, 2014
# of Photos on Site1,120
Other Models Shot With: Reagan

It's been a year since my last entry into the Dream Duos blog series and this one is kind of cheating. I have been in talks with both Mindee and Kaycee over the last week about getting the two of them together to shoot. Still, this is a duo that I have wanted to pair up for years now. So regardless if it is set to happen this coming week or not, at this point, it is still a dream duo of mine!

As you can see by the brief bios above, Mindee has shot with 13 different models in the last 15 years. She is always game to shoot with someone else and is responsible for getting many of those listed above on the site to begin with. Those models include: Mariah, Emerald, Reese, Rein, Rilynn, Noelle, Shelby, and Dolly. 

Over the last couple years I have also asked Mindee to shoot with a few models/friends of mine that she didn't really know - mainly Alice and Melani. Mindee paired up with Alice for only one set, a chastity themed one with keys and locks. She shot three sets with Melani, but only one of those has been published to the site so far. A photo from that set, with the see thru rainbow socks, adorns the site's splash page. The other sets they shot together are going to be a part of the site's 15th Anniversary Celebration and are destined to be hits when they go online.

The sets of Mindee with both Alice and Melani managed to find their way into the Top 3 of "My Favorite Sets of 2018" blog. They were easily some of the most memorable sets with all of you too. 

The only set to beat them out? One of Mindee with her mom, Shelby! So yeah, as you can see, team ups with Mindee sure tend to be among the best on the site. And now that I think about it, let's take a look back through all my Top 10 Favorite Sets blogs. Let's see just how many team ups with Mindee have earned a Top 10 ranking since 2004:

  • Total # of Sets: 12
  • Different Models Appeared With: 9
  • Placements: 1st - 2, 2nd - 2, 3rd - 2, 5th - 1, 6th - 2, 8th - 2, 10th - 1

That's quite the resume, but let's now shift the focus to Kaycee. Since her 2014 debut, Kaycee has easily been one of the most popular models on the site. She's appeared four times in Top 10 Favorite blogs, was a 2015 Star Model, joined the 1K Club in 2018, and appeared in a Wu's Feet Links feature set in July 2015 called, "Dockside Damsel."

Kaycee has done a lot in the almost five years that she's been shooting for me. When it comes to duo sets, however, she's only done two - both with her best friend Reagan. Much like Mindee, it was Kaycee who got her friend to shoot for the site, so it was only natural to shoot them together. Ever since then though, I've been itching to get her with someone else. Who better than Mindee? Naturally, there are some other models I'd love to see her with too, but I'll save those for another Dream Duos entry.

The idea to team up Mindee's size 8's with Kaycee's size 7.5's is actually not new. It's an idea I pitched to the both of them all the way back in 2015. Mindee had just done her Blue Balls set (above left), which featured her wearing a pair of blue knee high socks. Mindee left them in my car and when Kaycee saw them, it sparked an idea. What if I did a sister set to Mindee's, with Kaycee, using the same socks? Kaycee loved it as did Mindee. I didn't want them to be exactly the same, but Kaycee's set did involve some balls - squishy ones that she demolished under her toes and soles (above right). I made sure to get two blue ones for her though! My plan back then was to then get them together and do one of them together with some blue balls and socks. It just didn't happen... yet!

Jumping back to present, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this coming Monday I will get to make this Dream Duo a Dream Come True. It's looking like our schedules will match up at this point. We have a couple of sets planned, one of which I think is going to be really cute. If I have my way, this will only be the first of many duos with these two. I've already told them they owe me some blue balls... well, a set themed to them, that is! Much like blue balls, I've been kept waiting for this duo for way too long! It's about time that ends.

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.

Soles of Silk Instagram Page Disabled

At about 3:30 p.m. today I tried to login to the Soles of Silk Instagram account (@SolesofSilk), but was met with a login error. When I tried to reenter all the account information, I was met with an error that read, "Your account has been disabled for violating our terms. Learn how you many be able to restore your account."

When I clicked the "Learn More" link, I was taken to a page that mentioned violations of sexually explicit content. I have never published a single photo with any nudity, or sexual content. None of my captions have ever mentioned sexual acts, requests for them, or had URLs sending people to find such material. As a matter of fact, if/when someone posted something a little too "spicy" in the comments, I'd always delete them. I guess that just didn't matter to Instagram.

Some others in the foot fetish community have also lost their pages on Instagram over recent months. It looked like a blanket "no foot fetish accounts" act for a while as a bunch of people were being pulled. I always kept my fingers crossed and I seemed to be spared. As the months went on and I was still growing and growing on Instagram, I just figured I would be spared. Even some of the people who had accounts pulled told me that my site's material is so innocent, playful, and artsy that I should be fine. It really seemed like that was going to be the case until today.

Some of the content providers who have had their pages deleted have been successful creating new pages on Instagram. Others have taken the stance of "screw Instagram" and have focused on other social media platforms, most notable, Twitter. I don't know if I should bother with Instagram again if my appeal is denied. If I didn't post any sexually explicit content, what could I do differently if I made a new page? I'd hate to put the time and effort into building something back up for it all to be taken down again. For now, however, the site's Twitter page (@SolesofSilk) is where I'll be making posts and sharing photos, contest links, etc.

I have to say that I am quite frustrated by this, but am not totally surprised either. It just bothers me that some of the content I see on Instagram is so much worse and much more sexual than anything I have ever published. I'm not someone who immediately jumps to the defense of "Everyone else does it," but let's be honest here. Some of the content found on "famous" people's pages is much worse than anything you'd ever find on Soles of Silk's account. I just quickly jumped on a few "famous" peoples' pages and within a few dozen photos found things such as pole dancing, nudity that was covered in just body paint, some very revealing clothing, which also included photos taken of ass cracks and camel toes. While I don't mind those things at all, and am not calling for it to be removed from Instagram, it's just annoying that a pair of bare feet - something that you can see at any beach, or at the mall in a pair of flip flops, is considered "sexual." Those other things I mentioned, however, are just fine? I guess if I had over 40 million followers instead of just over 40,000, I might be more valuable to Instagram.

Sorry about the rant and the bad news. Hopefully my appeal is looked at by someone with an open mind. If for some reason, certain photos I have published, or hashtags I've used are ones they found to be in violation, I will happily remove those. I just can't think of anything off the top of my head that would have triggered this other than a blanket "no foot fetish" stance from the platform itself.

15 Year Celebration - The Original Eight

This blog entry is part of an ongoing series running throughout 2019 that will take a look at all things Soles of Silk in celebration of 15 years online.

December 29, 2004: 80 toes and 16 sets of soles graced Soles of Silk upon its launch. A total of eight models had agreed to shoot for me in the build up to getting this site off the ground. Who were they and how did I meet them? Let's take a look at the original eight. Soles of Silk's pioneers, if you will.

Shoe Size: 7.5
# of Sets: 2
Photo Count: 77
Model ID#: 001

When in the early planning stages of Soles of Silk, I wasn't sure how I was going to find my models. My initial plans were to ask some of the models who previously shot for The 10 Little Piggies (my former site a few years prior) and then ask some of my friends and coworkers. I also, however, began looking around the web. I knew it would be hard to introduce myself without having a site to show. I wasn't sure if any models would trust that someone "building" a site would be trustworthy. My ace in the hole, however, was that I still had samples from my previous work. I also was still remembered for what I had done by a lot of people, especially on Wu's Feet Links. I knew I could get a referral, if need be.

I don't remember exactly how I came in contact with Maria initially, but I do know that she had modeled for other foot fetish sites that were online at the time. When I told her that I was interested in launching a new site, she told me she'd be willing to meet up while she was traveling to Washington, D.C. 

I made my way down to her on a very rainy night and set up in her hotel room. We did two sets - one at a table and one on her bed. That was all. We never met again and we lost touch not too long afterward. I have no idea what she is up to today, or even how to reach her.

Shoe Size: 8.5
# of Sets: 28
Photo Count: 1,832
Model ID#: 002

Madison was Soles of Silk's most photographed model all the way up to 2011, when she was dethroned by Cierra. Madison was certainly the site MVP doing some of my favorite sets over those early years and could constantly be found in front of my camera, or with those narrow feet of hers in my hands. She loved having me rub her feet, as well as smell them fresh from shoes that she had been in all day. She knew I liked them warm and moist and she always smiled seeing me give her toes a sniff.

Madison is one of two models on this list who also appeared on The 10 Little Piggies, although she didn't have a lot of photos published on that site. Still, it made asking her to shoot for Soles of Silk a lot easier. At the time, we were very close friends too. All that made her agreeing to shoot an easy choice. She was eager to jump on board and went all out shooting as much as she could for about six years straight.

Sadly once 2009-10 rolled around, Madison moved out of state and completely changed her circle of friends. We never had a falling out and I thought that we were still close. I was taken back by the lack of communication when I tried to reach out to her, but I finally just backed off and let her do her thing. I could only imagine how many sets she'd have if she had never moved and things had stayed on pace. I sure do miss her!

I came into contact with Sue Lovely through an online modeling site called One Model Place. I used to have an account on the site and used it to contact area models who might be interested. It landed me a few models for the first couple years. When I came upon Sue Lovely's page in 2004, I was quite interested, especially with my soft spot for Asian women.

Luckily, Sue was up for shooting and had actually shot for Feet Dreams previously. She had some foot fetish experience, so that made things much easier during our planning phase.

I only got to meet Sue one time and we shot four sets. We planned on meeting up again, but things just never worked out. Eventually she informed me that she had stopped modeling altogether, but she'd let me know if she ever decided to step back in again. That hasn't happened, and I'm not thinking it will.

Many of you have gotten to know Cierra's feet over the years. Although she hasn't shot for the last few, Cierra was a mainstay for a very long time. She snatched the title of "Most Photographed" away from Madison in 2011 and held onto it until early 2014 when Mindee passed her by a single photo.

Cierra really loved shooting. She was the first model to ever be inducted into the 2K Club (2,000 photos). She had a blast whenever we shot and she did some classic sets that I won't ever forget. Some of my all-time favorite sets have Cierra's feet in them. She was always willing to do whatever, go wherever, and own it each and every time.

Over the last couple of years I have reached out to Cierra about shooting some new sets. While she's never said no, she's never tried to make plans either. Many times I don't even get a reply. Maybe she will make her return again? She had a three year lull once before and came back for some amazing new sets. Let's hope that happens again. I miss her and those super sweaty feet of hers and 2019 would be the perfect year for a return.

Of all the models featured in this blog, Mindee is the only model who is still currently shooting today. We just shot two weeks ago, as a matter of fact. For 15 years I have gotten to enjoy spending time with Mindee and her heavenly size 8 feet. I have called her my muse and many of you have claimed her as one of, if not your overall favorite on the site. It wouldn't be hard to see why. Mindee just loves shooting and will do so any chance she gets. She truly is one of my best friends and I adore to no end.

I am not going to go into too much detail on Mindee in this blog, even though she totally deserves it. Why, you ask? Well, I have an entire blog slated for April publication devoted entirely to my site's most photographed model. Most photographed by far too at 6,102 photos and counting. Mindee is the site's only model to join the 3K, 4K, 5K, and 6K Clubs. I don't think that title is in danger of going anywhere.

Amber is the other model who also appeared on The 10 Little Piggies, that I mentioned above. She had quite a few more photos than Madison, at the time, and was always up for a shoot back then. When it came time to go forward with Soles of Silk, I hit up my size 9 wearing friend and asked if her big feet were still up for some love and attention. They were! I say love because Amber was always throwing her feet into my hands for a massage every chance she got. I couldn't tell you how many hours her feet spent in my hands back during the days of The 10 Little Piggies.

It was always fun shooting Amber for my prior site, but I was so glad to have her included here when I began Soles of Silk. We had a fun start too, getting in a set with a banana split. It was her idea and although it was much colder than she expected, she kept on going and made a great set out of it.

Amber and I would end up drifting apart over the years, but I did catch up to her a number of years ago. She was even ready for a comeback in 2015, after being away for 11 years. Our shoot had to be canceled, however, and was never rescheduled. Today I get no response from her if I try to reach out to see if she's still interested. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Lisa Tyler agreeing to shoot for Soles of Silk before it was even online felt like a coup for me. She had been featured on Wu's Feet Links as a feature model in the set, "Lisa Tyler's Creamy Soles," and had also shot with Feet Fair. I thought she was a little out of my league, but when I reached out to her, we quickly became friends. She said she'd shoot for me and I was elated!

When the day came to shoot Lisa, I met her during her travels to Virginia. I was nervous and even told her so, telling her that I was a little intimidated by her amazing portfolio of work. She thanked me for my kind words, but assured me that there was no need to worry. She was so easy going and after only a few photos, we really hit our stride.

Some of the site's best photos done in the build up to launch day were done with Lisa. I couldn't wait to shoot her again and did get one other chance to do so when she traveled back through the region a couple of years later. Sadly, that was the last time we shot and we lost touch in the years since. I'll never forget her though. She was an amazing person to work with and I wish I had gotten the chance to do so more. It would have only made this site even better.

I was friends with Lauryn for a few years leading up to Soles of Silk's launch. I wouldn't have said that we were close friends though. It was Madison, who was dating Lauryn's older brother at the time, who asked her to come on board. Am I ever so glad that she did!

Lauryn gave the site it's first long-toed model. Fans of long toes clamored for Lauryn and she was an instant hit. And it wasn't just her feet either. People loved her smile and her fun loving attitude. It poured through in each and every photo she did. Add in the sets she shot alongside Madison and some instant classics were born.

I was able to shoot Lauryn a few times early on, but she did step away at one point. We went a few years without any new photos and then she made an amazing comeback. People we so glad to see her again, but it was ultimately short-lived. 

I would welcome Lauryn back in a heartbeat, if she ever wanted to shoot again. I do see her from time to time, but she told me she thinks she'd done. She also promised to let me know, should she ever change her mind. I'd always leave the door open for that! Wish it could be this year, as getting one of the original eight to come back would be huge!

Join Soles of Silk today to see this and over 10 years of foot fetish content!
