Sunday's Shoot - Ava

It was 12 days ago when I wrote my first non-update blog in some time. It was titled, "2020 Has Sucked, But it's Time to Shoot." In that blog I mentioned that I have reached out to a number of the site's models about setting up some shoots. That very next day, I was able to shoot two amazing sets with Kaycee, which you can also read about in the blog, "Wednesday's Shoot - Kaycee" from August 19, 2020.

Well, it took a little bit longer than I had planned, but I got in another shoot today, this time with Ava. It had been two years since our last shoot, so she was long overdue. She, like a few other models who you should see shooting soon, all had to be pushed back due to rain and extreme heat this last week. Sadly, both Carmella and Allie might have to be pushed back again here on Monday and Tuesday. The forecast is calling for heavy rain in this region to start this week. Oh well, at least I got in Ava today. Her sets turned out so well. I couldn't have asked for better!

Ava knows I like sweaty feet sets, so she was game for bringing some sneakers along for a set.

Ahh, Ava's Sweaty Feet

One thing I have expressed to all my models who have agreed to shoot for the first time in a while is that I will probably do quite a few basic sets. Keep themes simple and centered on things that people often say they like to see on Soles of Silk. It just so happens that one of the themes I hear lots of good things about is one I adore shooting too - sweaty feet. Namely, sneakers and no socks. Ava also knows how much I like shooting this, so it came as no surprise that I wanted her to do this when we were talking about ideas.

This first set of the day would be our basic one. It would be Ava showing off her size 9's after they got nice and moist inside those ADIDAS shoes of hers. She even gave them a playful smell or two throughout the set, as you can see above. Jealous?

Sometimes these more simple themed sets just kick ass and come out so well. That was the case with this one. We got some amazing poses in with that railing. She was able to prop her feet up onto it. It allowed me to get Ava's soft, wrinkly soles right up into my camera. And yes, they really are as soft as they look. Those thick wrinkles... Wow, just wow! And with the evening sun coming in, it left some nice shadows under each and every wrinkle on her poses with her soles scrunched. They're so thick! Or is it thicc? I can't keep up with the lingo!

This theme was one we were supposed to shoot two years ago. Better late than never!

Ravens Set... Two Years in the Making

When Ava first shot for me back in 2018, one of the themes that we were looking to do was a Ravens set. We were unable to shoot it that first go around, and with Carmella joining Ava the second time we shot, the set ended up not happening in 2018. In 2019 we didn't shoot at all, so I had been holding onto the shirt you see her wearing in this set for two years now. Well, it's finally been used as well as a pair of Ravens flip flops I had picked up some time ago. Thankfully, they were her size.

The original plan for this set was for Ava to wear a pair of black Vans she really wanted to use in the set. Yes, that would have made two sneakers and no socks sets on the day. Hey, I wouldn't have complained had that happened. Before we were set to meet, however, she texted me to tell me she couldn't find the shoes. Guess it is a good thing that I pick up extra props from time to time and had the flip flops. I was so happy to be able to use them too. I buy so many props for sets that I "might use one day." It's time to start using them or giving them away. They just take up too much space. Like the blue balls Kaycee used a couple of weeks ago. I've had those for a year or more too. It's partly because of Covid-19, but some of it is just me thinking that maybe one day I'll use them.

Anyhow, we moved to the bleachers for this set. The staircase we had used for the first set was located just to the left of these bleachers. Until this set, we had the whole area to ourselves too. No one was around. Naturally, once we began shooting this set, someone arrived to use the track. That's what happened when Kaycee shot here recently too. Someone came down after we began. Oh well, what can you do? No one bothered us either time.

We flew through this set since it was after 5:30 p.m. at this point. The sun was starting to cast long shadows and I had to try hard to keep my own out of the photos. 

After we got in our photos, I pulled out the GoPro for the video clip. About a minute into the clip, two more people came down to use the track. The entrance area to the track made it so they wouldn't be close to use for a few minutes at least. Things worked out nicely in that regard and we wrapped up the clip easily without having to put on a show to anyone a few feet away. No pun intended!

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

It was great catching up with Ava today. She looked amazing for our sets and I really loved her hair and eye lashes. She didn't miss a beat with these sets either and maybe it was best that it took us this long to shoot the Ravens on. She nailed it.

Ava and I are looking to shoot again at some point in the near future. We might move indoors for the next ones, or at least some before the end of the year. We have a size tease set planned that she's really wanting to do. She's seen some size teasing sets that other models have done and wants to do one of her own. With her size 9's, she knows her big feet would only make the message more loud and clear too. I totally agree! She also wants to step in a cake if we shoot inside. I swear, girls always wanting to be stepping in some kind of food in sets! I guess it does look fun, huh? 

Be on the lookout for more sets from Ava before the end of 2020. If today was any indication of how those will turn out, the future is looking bright... and messy... and quite teasing!

Wednesday's Shoot - Kaycee

I told you two days ago that I had plans to shoot Kaycee today, didn't I? I also said how nice it would be to be getting back to posting some blogs about shoots I was out doing again. Well, here I am, fresh off of two amazing sets with Kaycee. Seriously... I love this girl so much and she does some amazing photo for me whenever we get together. Today was no exception!

If you follow the Soles of Silk Twitter account (@SolesofSilk), you've already had a sneak peak of today's fun. I took two quick snaps of my camera's view screen after the conclusions of each set. I published the both of them for you and there was some good feedback for each photo.

Here on this blog, I'm going to treat you to those same two photos, but instead of photos of my camera's view screen, you're getting the full-sized versions. I thought about grabbing different photos for this, but I feel like these two just stand out as some of the better ones in each set. Maybe I'll add a couple more at the end since it's been a while. I guess you'll have to wait and see. Teasing sucks, doesn't it? Guess I've been taking notes from the ladies...

Kaycee's feet squished those spongy blue balls flat!

Ball Buster

This set, as well as the one below, both involved Kaycee wearing a shirt featuring some questionable wording. I made sure we went to places for each where we'd be able to be away from any prying eyes, or at least see people coming from a distance.

The first shirt was a deep blue and read, "Ball Buster." Along with the shirt, I Kaycee had two massive blue balls to squish under her feet. Knowing that she'd be doing this set, she went out and got her fingers and toes painted blue to match. I loved it! I was in awe of the sight before me and knew I was going to have a memorable set before I even snapped the first photo. Sometimes you can just look at your model and be like, "Damn, this is gonna be good!" In this case, I was like, "Damn, this is gonna be great!"

Some of you may recall that this is technically not the first time Kaycee squished some balls under her feet. Nope. Back in 2015, we took some bouncy balls to a court and she did a sister set to Mindee's Blue Ball set from the year prior. My plan has always been to get the two of them together for a blue ball pairing. After the results of their first sets together, I know they'll be top notch (see Feb. 25, 2019 blog: "Monday's Shoot - Mindee & Kaycee").

My plan is to now do that set with these same squishy balls. I'll just have to grab a matching shirt for Mindee. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can shoot that set sooner rather than later! It's crazy that it's August 19, 2020 and I have yet to shoot a single set of Mindee this year!

If you want to see both the original blue balls themed sets these two did, read the blog below. The two of them even wore the exact same pair of socks in the sets, tying them together:

Kaycee had so much fun this time around using her soles to flatten these massive blue balls. I watched in amazement, and maybe a little bit of terror, as she slapped those same soles against them, making loud slap sounds, resulting in them rippling with each strike. Kaycee also pinched the both of them with her playful toes and even dug her long fingernails into the soft, squishy balls. Again, I sat there in admiration and fear.

Before we wrapped things up, I grabbed my new GoPro to shoot a couple of clips. The first clip was shot with her soles front and center and the second, right down at the pier as she stood over the balls. In that one, she slammed her feet straight down upon them, totally flattening them. I shot both of these in full 4K, 60 frames per second. It's my first time using this camera for any video for Soles of Silk, but I've liked the results on other things I've shot with it so far.

Needless to say, I loved this set. Watching Kaycee have her way with those spongy blue balls had me laughing and enjoying her antics. I think she had a lot of fun with it too. We've done so many fun sets together and I rank this one right up there with some some of the most memorable ones. Talk about a way to get back into shooting again!

Kaycee has a potty mouth and I saw this shirt, I knew it would be perfect for her.


If you want to know the premise for this, our second set of the day, it stems from Kaycee's potty mouth. She's always letting f-bombs fly, even when there are strangers around. I've given her the look of shame too many times to count when she's rattling off some colorful language! Oh well, she just busted some balls, so innocent she is not!

We drove to a new location for this set. We found some grand stands by a track to use, deciding not to use another waterfront location. It worked out perfectly.

Now, the last time I shot at a track, I ended up having the police called on the model and myself. Those memories flooded my head immediately and I was hoping that Kaycee and I didn't have a repeat performance. For anyone wondering, the incident I am talking about came during the second day of my first meeting with Esmerelda. Read the Aug. 7, 2018 blog, "Monday's Shoot - Esmerelda," for more details.

We sat down on the bleachers and Kaycee got to work trying to pull on her black thigh high socks. I say "trying" because her legs and feet were already sweaty before we began. She struggled getting them on, saying they might not be going back on for the clip later if she stays this sweaty. 

Even thought it had rained all morning, the sun was out in full force and it was humid. Kaycee was there, out in the open, wearing all that black. I know she was hot. I had a black t-shirt on too and could feel it. 

Eventually Kaycee got the socks on and up on her thighs so we could get this second set underway. As we began, we had the whole track and bleacher area to ourselves. I shot a bunch of photos with her feet clad in the socks. I know a lot of sock fans out there will appreciate those and to be honest, I wanted her feet to get even more sweaty.

About 15 photos in to this set, someone came down to the track to jog, but we didn't stop. He seemed fine with us doing our thing. I always secretly hope that people around my outdoor shoots might have a foot fetish and catch a show. Seeing a total babe like Kaycee showing off her sweaty soles would be such a treat for any foot fetishist, without a doubt.

After Kaycee pulled off the first of her long socks, we snapped a few shots of her having one sock on and one off. As I was snapping those photos, however, she said she needed a break. She was roasting! I had no problems with her taking a few minutes and I joined her up in the shaded area behind the announcer booth.

While we took a few minutes to cool off, we noticed a police car had pulled into the parking lot. Oh did the memories flood my mind even harder seeing that. This time, however, I wasn't out of state. I was in my own town. Luckily, I didn't need to go through that ordeal again, though.

I don't know if the officer was watching us, but no one ever came down to say anything. They might have just been taking a break. With the officer a good distance away, we decided to go ahead and get this set finished. We moved back down into the stands and I was once again treated to Kaycee's one bare foot and one sock clad foot. I always loved those types of photos.

Starting things back up, I told Kaycee to go ahead and pull the second sock off. As she began doing that, I snapped photos to capture the process. That's also when I saw the police car drive away. That made me happy!

Once Kaycee had both socks removed, it was so evident how sweaty that last sock clad foot had become since it stayed covered so much longer than it's sister. The underside of her toes were glistening too. Naturally, I swiped my finger into the warm dampness and joked about how sweaty her toes were. She laughed and shook her head while I enjoyed myself for a little bit sticking my fingers between all her toes. I'm glad Kaycee loves me!

With Kaycee totally barefoot now, we shot the remainder of the set, along with a video clip. I wanted to do two clips here too, but I was not trying to have Kaycee put those socks back on again. She was starting to sweat even more and I'm not cruel. You know, like ballbusting cruel... Love ya Kaycee! Those balls were only symbolic both times you squished them under your feet though, so you get a pass. I'm sure you would never ever actually... Never mind.

Today turned out to be just what I needed to become excited about Soles of Silk again. Covid-19, and 2020 in general, has just had me down and out. If you read my blog from yesterday, "2020 Sucks, But it's Time to Shoot!," then you know how I felt. 

Hanging out with Kaycee allowed me to reconnect with that one thing that has always been the backbone of Soles of Silk. That one thing is getting to hang out with a friend, shoot pictures of her pretty feet, and all the while, enjoy some time out together. The vast majority of my models are my personal friends, or friends of those friends that have since become my friends. It really is kind of quaint, to be honest.

I'm so lucky that Kaycee, back in July 2014, agreed to shoot for me. I'm even more lucky that she still enjoys doing so six years and approaching 2,000 photos later. Most of all though, I'm glad that she such a beloved friend. I love spending time with her, whether we're shooting or not. Thanks for today, Kaycee! I can't wait to do it again soon.

Oh yeah, about those extra bonus photos... I hope you like them! I know I do! How can you not?

2020 Has Sucked, But it's Time to Shoot!

Cierra is one of the models who said she'd be up for shooting again.

The year 2020 has been such a drag for obvious reasons and it has taken its toll on me. Between all that and my full time job that I had worked for over two decades, I had never felt so down and out before. I felt dragged down by everything and even got to the point where I felt like updating Soles of Silk each week was a chore. I've never felt that way in the 15-plus years that I have ran this site and I hated it. I've always gotten so much joy out of my shoots, running the site, and interacting with all of you. None of that seemed to be happening for me for most of 2020.

As many of you know, if you're still coming to read my blogs, I haven't been blogging anything other than the update posts. I always used to do spontaneous blogs talking about what site news, some fun facts on my models, but most importantly, I'd blog about my recent shoots I had done. Well, this year I've shot one total time, getting in two sets with Kaycee. That was back in March, which feels like an eternity ago now (see blog: "Monday's Shoot - Kaycee").

With that being the case, I am so lucky that I've always had the mentality to shoot way more content than I'd ever need. I thought that it might come in handy in case of an emergency. I figured that emergency would be something like, say a broken leg, camera issues, or not having too much time away from work. I would have never expected my photo back up would come in handy for something like Covid-19. 

Never in my lifetime would I have even thought of needing to sit on photos for something like a pandemic. That's exactly what happened though and thankfully, I had those sets waiting to be used. I actually still have over 30 unpublished sets at the time of this blog. Most of them, however, are of Mindee. That's not a bad thing itself as I never grow tired of her and her size 8's, but I am running out of sets of the other models.

Speaking of lacking, the same holds true for video clips. I don't always shoot a clip with each set. It depends on if we're out in public, or other unforeseen circumstances. Again, I have more clips of Mindee than anyone here. I have been refraining from publishing all the clips too as I felt like I might run out. I also didn't want to have a string of like eight clips of Mindee, if I could finally get in some other shoots at some point.

Well, I am excited to say I think things are looking a little better. Obviously, 2020 still sucks and who knows when that will get better. On the Soles of Silk end however, I have some good news to share. But first, a little bit more of some bad news that has helped lead me to this good news for the site.

You might have noticed I used the word "worked" when referring to my job in the opening paragraph. Well, that's because I resigned at the end of July. I found out some things I didn't like and really hated the stance that was taken with me when it was discussed with ownership. I ultimately felt like unless I lived my life for that job and nothing else, the owner would never be happy, which he probably still wouldn't be anyhow. I was working six days a week, so even without Covid looming over everything, my schedule was tight to shoot to begin with.

Ultimately, I decided it was time to go and enjoy life for a bit. I've worked on some quality of life things, such as seeing my family and friends, going out to eat, and doing some little day trips. I feel like I'm in a much better place. That's why I recently reached out to some of the models of the site to see how they're doing and if they're interested in shooting again.

Now that we're months into this pandemic, some people are more comfortable to be around friends, go out to eat, etc. In the last couple of days, I reached out to numerous models, some of which haven't shot in years. I heard back from a number of them and some of these names may surprise you and make you happy to know that they want to make a return. The models who have gotten back to me and want to shoot are as follows: Allie, Ava, Carlin, Carmella (planning to shoot Sunday), Cierra, Jasey Rae, Kaycee (shooting tomorrow), Kayleigh, Leah, Melani, and Mindee.

Over the last few months both Felicia and Reagan have also expressed that they'd shoot whenever I was ready. Then there was also Audrey and Bria wanting to shoot with another one of their sisters. I haven't heard from Audrey in a few weeks, but they seemed really excited to make that happen (see blog: "Soles of Silk's Sisterhood Trio?").

In all honesty, this sort of thing has always happened whenever I reached out to a bunch of the models. I get a bunch of people saying they want to shoot and some will cease to respond after a few days, or will never have an open day. So far, I have a positive outlook on those shoots, but time will tell.

To say that I'm happy to finally be getting back into the swing of things is an understatement. I hope to be having some regular blogs popping back up here soon showing you the sets that I've shot. It will be nice not to have the blog filled with only site update posts as it has been this summer. Being so down and out these last few months just left me with no motivation to sit down and blog. Plus, I felt like I'd only be blogging about how I wasn't shooting, how 2020 sucks, etc.. I hope you all understand and hope you and your family are doing well at this time. Here's to a better end to 2020, at least as far as this site goes!
