15 Year Celebration - The 15 Most Photographed Models (2004-19)

Even though I have been dedicated each and every week to running Soles of Silk for the last 15 years, none of it would have possible without the models who bared their feet for my camera. A total of 108 different models did just that since 2004. As one of the final blogs of the 15 Year Celebration, I want to take a look at the 15 who compiled the most photos on the site over the course of these last 15 years. These are the ones who deserve the most love and attention for all that they have done. 

Before getting into the 15 most photographed models, there were three who just missed the cut. A total of 18 models have joined the site's 1K Club (1,000 photo mark). That means by naming the 15 most photographed, three would be left off the list. I wanted them still featured here nonetheless as their contributions have all been amazing to Soles of Silk.



Honorable Mentions: Emerald (1,170), Kimmie (1,220), & Jordana (1,266)

Now, onto the 15 models who make up The 15 Most Photographed Models of Soles of Silk's first 15 years online:


15. Kayleigh
# of Published Photos: 1,434
Site Debut: October 21, 2009
K Clubs Joined: 1K (May 23, 2012)
Star Model Appearance: 1 (2011)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 2 - 2 (2009)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: After School Feet (June 2012)

There was a point in time that I fully expected that Kayleigh would challenge becoming the site's most photographed model. She wasted no time in joining the model roster, shooting the very day that she turned 18. From there, she quickly became one of my go-to models for sets. She loved shooting and I always loved shooting her.

What ultimately led to Kayleigh not compiling as many photos as I thought she would was a result of her moving away for a few years. I went some time without shooting with her, but we did get together again for a few sets when she moved back home. Those initial return sets were our last photos, however. 

We have always talked about shooting again, but just never have. I need to hit her up again. I think 2020 would rock if I had some new photos of Kayleigh and her little feet after all this time.



14. Abby
# of Published Photos: 1,457
Site Debut: January 26, 2005
K Clubs Joined: 1K (September 4, 2013)
Star Model Appearance: 1 (2007)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 4 - 1 (2006), 1 (2011), 1 (2013), 1 (2014)
Wu's Feet Links Interview: February 2006

We all know Abby's story at this point. My ex-girlfriend from the late 90's. My first true foot model. The star of my former site, The 10 Little Piggies. Getting her to return for Soles of Silk felt only natural. 

Along the way we have done some great sets, but we always seem to shoot and then go on long breaks between sets. The one you see above was the last set of hers that I had waiting to be published, which came during October's Cereal Killers Month. She's certainly another model that I really need to find some time to shoot with again. I know many of you would like that as well since she has a legion of longtime fans.



13. Melani
# of Published Photos: 1,459
Site Debut: April 12, 2017
K Clubs Joined: 1K (December 13, 2018)
Star Model Appearance: 1 (2017)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 7 - 3 (2017), 2 (2018), 2 (2019)

It took a little over one year for Melani to join the 1K Club (1,000 photos). It took all of one day for her to become one of the site's most popular models when she debuted in April 2017. When her preview photos were published to the site's former Instagram account, I knew I had a new fan favorite on my hands. Or in my hands, since she really loves having her feet rubbed. 

Now that I'm done bragging, Melani shot a ton of content right away. We did shoot earlier this year, but it's been months since that shoot. She still loves being in front of my camera and you best believe I intend to find some more time for her in 2020. She's just been a little preoccupied, but I know she wants to return and do some new sets.



12. Kaycee
# of Published Photos: 1,479
Site Debut: July 9, 2014
K Clubs Joined: 1K (July 11, 2018)
Star Model Appearance: 1 (2015)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 6 - 1 (2014), 1 (2015), 1 (2016), 1 (2018), 2 (2019)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: Dockside Damsel (July 2015)

Ever since I met Kaycee I have adored her. We quickly became good friends and she's someone I cherish spending time with. The funniest thing is, I didn't think she'd be up for shooting for me. When I ultimately asked her, however, she said yes. 

Ever since her first photos, she's enjoyed shooting each and every time we've found time to do some more. Some of her latest work has been among my favorite too. I really hope to keep the trend going with some more shoots in 2020. And speaking of 2020, be sure not to miss out the first set of the New Year when the much anticipated second team up set of Kaycee with Mindee hits the site.



11. Jasey Rae
# of Published Photos: 1,587
Site Debut: October 30, 2013
K Clubs Joined: 1K (April 11, 2018)
Star Model Appearance: 2 (2017, 2019)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 5 - 1 (2015), 1 (2016), 1 (2017), 2 (2019)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: Captain of the All-Tease Cheer Squad (July 2018)

Jasey Rae is someone who has always enjoyed spending time in front of my camera and showing off her chubby toes. It seems like the last couple of years, however, she's really found her groove and loves shooting even more.

Like Kaycee, the last few years has seen some of my favorite sets of Jasey's up to this point. She's always been awesome, but I just feel like her and those plump piggies are just killing it as of late. She had some of the best sets of 2019, in my opinion.



10. Kellie
# of Published Photos: 1,740
Site Debut: March 30, 2005
K Clubs Joined: 1K (October 8, 2008)
Star Model Appearance: 2 (2005, 2006)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 4 - 2 (2005), 1 (2006), 1 (2007)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: Football Fun w/ Kimmie (February 2007)

Like her identical twin sister, Kimmie (honorable mentions), I really miss shooting with Kellie. My original twin duo dominated the site in its early years. People loved them and they loved shooting new photos too. I was one happy photographer anytime I had them solo or together.

Sadly, things change over time and I ended up growing apart from both twins. They changed jobs and I was in touch with them less and less as time moved on. Still, Kellie compiled so many photos in the years that she shot. Back then she was always finding time for photos and foot rubs. I wish I had found some more time for her back then.



9. Wendy
# of Published Photos: 1,763
Site Debut: May 17, 2006
K Clubs Joined: 1K (December 29, 2009)
Star Model Appearance: 3 (2006, 2008, 2012) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 3 - 1 (2006), 1 (2008), 1 (2012)

I was so happy to get Wendy to shoot for Soles of Silk. Like Abby, she was a former model on The 10 Little Piggies. She might very well have been one of my most popular models from that site too. Her popularity sure didn't wane when she brought those smooth size 8 feet to my new site. She was remembered by many who loved her and she also picked up plenty new fans upon debuting.

Wendy and I would shoot on a regular basis for many years. The last few years, however, we have kind of lost touch. Every so often we do exchange a quick message with one another. She's never really replied to any new shoot requests, so I'm thinking she might be done with shooting and focused more on family. I respect that. At the same time, you best bet she'd be welcomed back in a heart beat if she ever said she wanted to shoot again.



7. (tie) Jamie
# of Published Photos: 1,874
Site Debut: August 4, 2010
K Clubs Joined: 1K (February 19, 2014)
Star Model Appearance: 3 (2010, 2012, 2014) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 2 - 1 (2010), 1 (2011)

Jamie loved shooting every chance she could get back when she debuted. We did a bunch of sets the summer she turned 18. Once she went away to school though, we'd have to pause for a bit. She would always be sure to find some time to do new photos when she came home for break, or was off for the summer. 

Ultimately, Jamie compiled a bunch of photo sets that I love, doing so in some very interesting settings. She was someone I figured would join the 2K Club (2,000 photos), but we kind of grew apart along the way. No drama or anything like that, we just don't see one another or chat much at all. I mean, she also might have gotten to 2K had her feet not spent so many hours in my hands during those shoots too. Oh well, she loved foot rubs and I liked giving them.



7. (tie) Madison
# of Published Photos: 1,874
Site DebutDecember 29, 2004 (Site Launch Model)
K Clubs Joined: 1K (January 9, 2008)
Star Model Appearance: 3 (2004, 2006, 2008) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 10 - 1 (2004), 2 (2005), 3 (2006), 1 (2007), 1 (2008), 2 (2009)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: Piggy Bank Piggies (March 2008)

When Soles of Silk launched, Madison was like Mindee is now. She shot for me all the time and was the site's main model. We were friends for a handful of years and she even had a few photos on The 10 Little Piggies too. She really came into her own on Soles of Silk though, doing a lot of the most memorable sets in its early years.

I would have never envisioned a time when I wasn't shooting with Madison. Sadly, however, she met some new friends and we kind of grew apart. I would have loved if she and Mindee would have constantly been vying for the top spot on this site all these years later. That would have been awesome. Her friendship and those slender soles are truly missed.



6. Kelsey
# of Published Photos: 1,889
Site Debut: February 1, 2006
K Clubs Joined: 1K (February 5, 2014)
Star Model Appearance: 1 (2016) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 6 - 1 (2006), 1 (2007), 1 (2009), 1 (2015), 2 (2017)

Kelsey was one of my models who shot for me right after turning 18. She did some great sets early on and then she moved. We stayed in touch, but with the distance between us, I wasn't sure if I'd ever shoot her again. Then she came back home.

We started shooting again, but since her return, it's always been something we do every so often. I always wanted her to do more, but she's focused on a lot of family things right now. That comes first and I understand that. My camera is always ready should she and those pudgy piggies crave more camera time.



5. Layla
# of Published Photos: 1,942
Site Debut: June 22, 2005
K Clubs Joined: 1K (January 14, 2009)
Star Model Appearance: 3 (2005, 2007, 2009) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 5 - 1 (2007), 1 (2008), 3 (2009)

Like Madison, Layla was one of my site's early year MVP's. She and I met online and met up for a shoot back in 2005. We got along great and decided to do it again. From there, we made more plans and before you know it, she's also introducing me to some of her friends and even her very own sister, Jaylee Austin. From there, you were also introduced to them as she got them to shoot sets with her, as well as on their own.

Layla was always down to shoot some fun themes and go to some unique locations. She made shooting easy and I really miss meeting up with her. She moved years ago and we really haven't stayed in touch, sadly. I can only imagine where her photo count would be at this point had she not moved.



4. Alice
# of Published Photos: 2,128
Site Debut: May 6, 2015
K Clubs Joined: 1K (June 7, 2017), 2K (August 14, 2019)
Star Model Appearance: 2 (2014, 2016)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 7 - 1 (2015), 2 (2016), 1 (2017), 1 (2018), 2 (2019)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: The SK8R Gal Who Wears Size 11 Skates (July 2017)
Wu's Feet Links Interview: January 22, 2016

This year marked the first time a model had joined the 2K Club since Mindee accomplished the feat back in 2014. Alice became the site's fourth member of the elite group that also consists of Cierra, Mindee, and Charlee (below), who also joined in 2019. As a matter of fact, Charlee and Alice joined in back-to-back weeks. Talk about an iconic two week span.

Alice, from the very start, has cherished every moment she's had in front of my camera. She was so unsure back when she started of what to do, or if people would love her big feet and long toes. Those worries quickly faded though when her Instagram photo previews received so much love and admiration. 

Furthermore, Alice made me really start to find big feet and long toes more desirable than I ever had. There's just something so dominant about her size 11's to me. Pair that with the fact that she knows I'm mesmerized by them, and I always want to find more time to take photos of them.

In 2019 I didn't really shoot much. Alice was someone I am really sad that I didn't get in any new content with. Even though I'm sitting on a few sets of hers still, I want more. We shot so much the last couple of years, but I still need more. In 2020 I am going to make it a point to shoot those size 11's like I was a few years ago... every chance I could get. Mindee needs some company in the K Clubs 3K and above. Alice is someone I want to see join her.



3. Charlee
# of Published Photos: 2,182
Site Debut: September 16, 2009
K Clubs Joined: 1K (July 10, 2013), 2K (August 7, 2019)
Star Model Appearance: 2 (2011, 2018) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 4 - 2 (2011), 1 (2018), 1 (2019)

Charlee wasn't around for the first five years of Soles of Silk's existence, but when she debuted in 2009, she started making her mark and doing so at a constant pace. I've shot so many photos with Charlee during the last 10 years that I've always been sitting on something of hers at any given time. That's a good thing too. Let me explain. 

Charlee moved a few times in recent years and we have been unable to shoot for long stretches of time. When she does come home to visit, however, she always finds time for me and some new photos. We're already talking about doing some new ones in March and I can't wait. The 3K Club is only a matter of time for Charlee, I'm sure.



2. Cierra
# of Published Photos: 2,484
Site DebutDecember 29, 2004 (Site Launch Model)
K Clubs Joined: 1K (March 2009), 2K (December 28, 2011)
Star Model Appearance: 3 (2008, 2009, 2010) 
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 10 - 1 (2004), 1 (2005), 4 (2008), 2 (2010), 1 (2015), 1 (2016)
Wu's Feet Links Feature: Foot & Size Tease (March 2009)

The first site model to reach the 2K Club, Cierra's sweaty little soles were constantly in front of my camera for a number of years. She began a little slow, but eventually got into the swing of things and did some of the site's most memorable sets. People couldn't get enough of her damp feet and when I wasn't shooting them, I was busy rubbing them and getting my hands all moist in the process. Yes, they really do sweat that much.

All that being said, Cierra is someone that I have sadly not shot in a few years. A while back she went a few years without shooting too, but eventually made a return. I was so happy to have her back, but it was short-lived. She is still living local, but goes long stretches of time without replying to my shoot requests. For the longest time we were trying to plan some new sets, but she always seems t go silent after touching base. Maybe one day she'll show me her sweaty soles again. I'd love for that to happen as she's one of the site's most recognizable models over the first 15 years.



1. Mindee
# of Published Photos: 6,839
Site Debut: December 29, 2004 (Site Launch Model)
K Clubs Joined: 1K (May 19, 2010), 2K (January 8, 2014), 3K (December 23, 2015), 4K (October 26, 2016), 5K (May 2, 2018), 6K (December 5, 2018)
Star Model Appearances: 7 (2007, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)
10 Favorite Set Appearances: 26 - 1 (2004), 1, (2008), 1 (2009), 1 (2010), 2 (2011), 2 (2012), 1 (2013), 2 (2014), 3 (2015), 4 (2016), 3 (2017), 4 (2018), 1 (2019)
Wu's Feet Links Features: Piggies & Power Girl (March 2010), The Ferris-t of Them All (July 2016)

So Mindee is going to be joining the 7K Club (7,000 photo mark) very soon. She'll be only a few photos away after this first update in 2020. That'll mean that she's well on her way of having three times as many photos as Cierra, who is only one spot behind her on this list. That is crazy to think of as I sit here writing this.

I have so many sets of Mindee already shot that are just waiting for their chance to get onto the site too. I think I could reasonably get her to 8K and 9K without shooting a single photo of her again at this point. Don't worry though as I have no intentions on stopping. I think 10K and beyond is a must for my muse. 

Mindee is amazing and I'm so happy to have her as one of my best friends. Not bad for someone who only shot for me because I assured her that I really needed some people to do it, huh? What she thought was probably a one and done has resulted in over 95 published sets and 32 yet unpublished ones at the close to 2019. I wish I had taken even more. Oh well, I'll make up for these next 15 years.


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