Sunday's Shoot - Mindee

Something happened today that had not happened in 956 days - Mindee shot brand new photos. If you're confused, I totally understand. Every few weeks a set of Mindee has been uploaded to Soles of Silk like clockwork. Her photo count has continued to rise, inching her closer to that vaunted 10K Club (10,000 photos). But yeah, it's true. For the last two years and seven months, Mindee has not shot a single new set.

I honestly do not want to get into all of the reasons for this absence, but just know that a lot of trying things and hardships came her way in 2019. From there, the world was tossed head-first into the pandemic. Her job saw her working night and day, all while trying to squeeze in time for family and friends. Mindee is certainly her family's rock and a lot of people depended on her over these last few years. There was no way I was going to add to her stress. I told her to keep me in mind and whenever she was ready, so was I.

Now this is where having dozensof unpublished sets with Mindee came in handy. I got to finally work through that backlog we had built up for years. You know, like when we shot 40 sets in 2017, 10 more in 2018, and then nine in 2019 before things came to a pause? That's 59 sets and they took some time to get onto the site.

Here in 2022, however, Mindee's backlog had been whittled down to one final set. It's this week's update, as a matter of fact. I decided to go ahead and post it next since I knew Mindee and I would be shooting today. And talk about a day I've been excited for this whole weekend! Sure, I have shoot more than 120 sets featuring Mindee, but I wouldn't trade any of them for the world. I'm not lying when I say that every one of those shoots was an amazing time, with an amazing friend. We've had so much fun doing those sets and I'd shoot another 120 without question! Honestly, I hope that does indeed happen.

Now, let's get into today's shoot because you will definitely want to see these! I teased Mindee while setting we set up my lights that she might be rusty after all this downtime. She denied it outright and turned out to be 100 percent correct. I mean, damn... Today's sets... Wow!


Set 1: By the Fireplace

In the day leading up to our shoot, Mindee and I had planned out three shoot themes. Those themes can be scene in Sets 2-4. This set, however, was a spur of the moment one upon seeing Mindee's brown boots. You know me, I'm a sucker for a pair of warm feet, fresh from some sneakers. Well, boots are just as good and to make things just a bit warmer inside those boots, I had Mindee shoot this one next to the fireplace. 

There may have been snow on the ground outside, which Mindee refused to shoot in like she did back in 2005, but she was all nice and cozy inside. And yes, those feet got nice and warm as I had hoped. I should know, I spent a good, long time rubbing them for her. We honestly could have probably done a fifth set had Mindee's size 8's not spent so long in my hands. Can you blame me though? Not only were these sets overdue, but so was rubbing those heavenly feet. Thanks Mindee!


Set 2: Carrot Tease

This set, like the one below, was inspired by something I saw on the internet just a few days ago. I found a graphic showing baby carrots next to large, full-sized carrots. Of course, it gave me inspiration for a size teasing theme. Would you expect anything less after Emerald's Banana, Ava's Kit-Kat, or Alice's Hot Dog sets over the years? Why not carrots?

When I sent Mindee the carrots graphic she replied with a tears of joy emoji followed by one of a carrot. Naturally, that meant she was game and I knew I was going to the store to buy some carrots Sunday morning. That wasn't all I had to pick up at the store, however. I also had to buy glue and some finger cots. If you're confused, you're about to see why.


Set 3: Yucky Glue Dribbles

The same day I sent Mindee the carrot graphic I also sent her a naughty meme. Which you can see in the Tweet I posted to the Soles of Silk Twitter account (@SolesofSilk) just prior to writing this blog:


With Mindee showing her displeasure over the thought of us leaky boys, I figured we needed to do a set with a glue bottle too. Yeah, it's really that simple for us. My first idea was to have her pour glue on her feet as punishment for that reaction, but I know better than to try to "punish" Mindee. She's my boss. My mindset quickly changed to supporting her reaction and wanting to showcase it in the set itself. My solution? Those small finger cots, a.k.a. finger condoms. One would fit perfectly over the tip of the glue bottle and Mindee could stop any of that yucky glue from dribbling out all over her feet.

Okay, so carrots, baby carrots, a bottle of glue, and finger cots were on the morning's shopping list. There was still one more item, however. Blueberries.


Set 4: Blueberry Busting

They're small, they're blue and boy do they ever smush! Blueberries have found their way into a few other sets on Soles of Silk over the years. In 2005 Cierra was featured in a set where she smashed a Blueberry Pie. Seven years later, we decided to call back to that set with one featuring her smashing Blueberry Pancakes. Still, no one had ever smashed just plain old blueberries. That was, until today.

Jumping up on the table, Mindee was in mean girl mode and made sure those little blueberries didn't stand a chance. Between getting trapped in her black fence net pantyhose and being stabbed on the sharp heels of her sandals, no tender berries were left unbusted. And don't worry, no shoes were ruined in this set, only those worthless little berries - as it should always be. Shoes are too precious. Berries, not so much.

As you can see, today's sets were super fun and had lots of teasing throughout. Not only is Mindee not rusty on modeling, but she's not rusty on teasing her photographer either. We had a blast and know so many of you are going to enjoy these sets every bit as much as we did shooting them.

Mindee and I aim to shoot again regularly here in 2022. I couldn't think of someone better to kick off the new year by shooting the first photos of 2022. It's been long overdue and although she's still a very busy woman, I think today was a day we both enjoyed and needed very much. You're amazing Mindee! Thanks for today!

1K Club - Allie's Footography

For the first time ever, a model entered the one of the K Clubs in a set featuring 3 models.

For the first time since December 13, 2018, when Melani joined the 1K Club (1,000 photos), we have another model set to join the distinguished group of now 19 models. This model is none other than Allie

In the three years since the site's last induction into the 1K Club, Charlee and Alice have risen to join the 2K Club and Mindee was Mindee, joining the 7K, 8K, and 9K Clubs. Her 6K Club induction came only a week before Melani's 1K induction too. Yeah, we all know she shoots a bunch! 

Anyhow, let's take a look at how all 19 of the site's 1K Club members rank as of this footography:

  1. Mindee - 9,231 photos
  2. Charlee - 2,860 photos
  3. Alice - 2,561 photos
  4. Cierra - 2,484 photos
  5. Kaycee - 1,967 photos
  6. Layla - 1,942 photos
  7. Kelsey - 1,889 photos
  8. Jamie (tied) - 1,874 photos
  9. Madison (tied) - 1,874 photos
  10. Jasey Rae - 1,787 photos
  11. Wendy - 1,763 photos
  12. Kellie - 1,740 photos
  13. Melani - 1,658 photos
  14. Abby - 1,457 photos
  15. Kayleigh - 1,434 photos
  16. Jordana - 1,266 photos
  17. Emerald - 1,252 photos
  18. Kimmie - 1,220 photos
  19. Allie - 1,014 photos

There is no doubt that Allie's photo count launched to crazy heights beginning with shoots in 2020. Making her debut in 2017, we shot just two sets. Those 134 photos would be where she sat from February 28, 2018 until the her much beloved October 28, 2020 Halloween update featuring her slime covered feet. 

Allie has easily become one of my most dependable and most photographed models over the last two years. Her tiny size 5 feet helped get the site through the pandemic with a bunch of amazing sets. She earned the top spot on the "2020 Star Models" listing for her efforts and had two sets featured in "My 10 Favorite Sets of 2020," including the slime set, which I declared Number 1. She made a mark on 2021 as well, being featured three times throughout "My 10 Favorite Sets of 2021." This goes to show you that not only is Allie shooting a lot more often, but she's been responsible for some of the site's best sets while doing so. Oh yeah, she even got her boyfriend's sister, Juliet, to shoot for the site just one day after turning 18 too. Bonus points!

Once Allie's Slimer set was published on October 28, 2020 for the Halloween update, her photo count has been one of the most meteoric in the site's history. The 1,014 photos she currently sits at today won't last long. I have a few sets of hers waiting to be published and we have plans to meet up again soon for some more fun shoots. One of those involves baby oil and the other, nude pantyhose. Or was it baby oil AND nude pantyhose? Hmm... Why not one of each and then one together?

Before we jump ahead to what's still to come, here is a look at all of the sets that make up Allie's current photo count, along with years published:

  1. (2017) Vans Shoes & Socks
  2. (2018) Flip Flops by the River
  3. (2020) Slimed!
  4. (2020) Black & White Striped Socks w/ Juliet
  5. (2021) Black Boots & Thigh Highs
  6. (2021) Flats on the Tracks
  7. (2021) Easter Egg Hunt
  8. (2021) Blue Bike Rack
  9. (2021) Lit in Little
  10. (2021) Lotioned Up Picnic
  11. (2021) Nature Trail Bridge
  12. (2021) Sweaty White Converse
  13. (2021) Pumpkin Pie, Cutie Pie
  14. (2021) 3 Pairs of Converse w/ Kaycee & Juliet

I am so glad to see Allie ascend into the 1K Club and have no doubt that she will one day join Mindee, Charlee, Alice, Cierra, and very soon, Kaycee, in the 2K Club. The way she's been shooting, she'll probably make a run for the 3K Club while she's at it? I know I'd sure love to spend as much time possible in front of those itty bitty feet.

A 1K Club Interview with Allie should be added to the site in the next couple of weeks. Be sure to check the blog and/or the site for to follow along with the weekly updates. Until then, Allie had this to say about becoming Soles of Silk's 19th member of the 1K Club:

"I can't believe I have now reached 1,000 photos. It's been really fun doing these shoots. I've enjoyed every single one of them. I'm so honored to be just one of 19 models to reach 1,000. It's so awesome!"

What will the future hold, well, by the sounds of it, it looks like it might be getting a little bit messy, or even a lot messy if she has it her way. No worries though, I'm talking messy in a good way!

"My last shoot was the first one I did with food. I'm looking forward to doing more shoots in general, but I'm most looking forward to doing more like my pumpkin pie set," said Allie. "Anyways, it feels great to reach 1,000 and I plan on keeping it going!"

I can't wait to watch those little feet destroy whatever messy food you want, Allie. One request, or countless requests if you keep wanting to stick your feet in food... Next time, save me a plate. No, not something you didn't step on. I'm talking about whatever you did.


Allie's Sonic-themed handheld gaming set will be hitting the site soon in 2022.

My Favorite Sets of 2021

Every year I have to make hard decisions. Ones that often get changed around so many times that I just have to finally say, "This is how it is and that is how it is going to be." These decisions involve my annual selection of my 10 Favorite Sets of the year. Well, with 2021 now in the books, I had to make a whole new round of tough choices.

It's time to see which models' sets made my Top 10 from 2021. Are some of your favorites in here? How about ones that aren't Let me know what some of your favorite Soles of Silk sets were from the year that was 2021.



Honorable Mentions (3): Ava - I Love Ballbusting (September 1, 2021), Allie - Lit in Little (June 9, 2021), & Alice & Maya - Big & Little Shoe Swap (March 17, 2021)


10. Cutie Pie, Pumpkin Pie

Model: Allie
Published Date: November 24, 2021

We go messy for the Number 10 set for 201 with Allie. For over a year, Allie wanted to smash her tiny size 5's into a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. With only a few weeks left before Turkey Day 2021, we finally made it happen. And boy, oh boy, what a mess those little feet made! It just goes to show you, even small feet can be quite mighty. Oh, and teasing too!

Shooting this set turned into so much fun. Allie and I were laughing the majority of the set. Whether she was squishing the soft pumpkin pie between her plump toes, or squirting strings of whipped cream across those same toes' tips, we were both cracking loving every minute. I'm sure this set has led to her desire to shoot more messy food sets in the future. That tends to be trend when my models shoot their first one. From there, they begin asking me if I've shot this, that, or the other thing. I can't wait to see those size 5's do it again.

What would you like to see Allie push her itty bitty feet into next? Maybe I should make a poll on Twitter (@SolesofSilk) one day and let everyone decide?


9. Bubblegum Brat

Model: Juliet
Published Date: February 10, 2021

I've always had a fondness for bratty girls. When Juliet debuted just one day after turning 18, we began discussing all kinds of ideas for future sets. When I mentioned my love for brats, she told me she can be bratty and would love to do it in one of her sets. I was sold. I the "Brat" shirt online written in the Babie font and she loved it. Adding in those neon pink thigh high socks and bubble gum made it that much better.

Once the set got underway, I let Juliet be, well, a brat! She teased the camera, and the photographer behind it, with her sock covered feet. She flipped the middle finger, gave the loser gesture, and quite frankly, looked like she was ready to slap me. I loved it.

By the end of the set Juliet had bared her 18 year old soles, stuck some gum between her toes (which I chewed on when finished), and let us all know just how much of a brat she truly is. It earned this set the Number 9 spot in the process.


8. Sudsy Soles

Model: Mindee
Published Date: December 1, 2021

Mindee and I have this knack for just coming up with a set off the top of our heads. Well, on the day that this set was shot, I was also shooting her mom, Shelby, and her grandmother, Dolly. Shelby had shot before, but Dolly was doing her first shoot. Wanting her to see what we do, I asked Mindee to shoot a set first, followed by Shelby. Then Dolly could do a solo set before the three of them jumped in for one together. One problem, while I had plans for both Shelby's and Dolly's set, Mindee and I had nothing. 

That was until she began handwashing some dishes while I was setting up my photo lights. Yup. It was that easy. I told Mindee to save some dishes because we were going to do her set right there in her kitchen. And just like with so many of her sets, this one came out phenomenal and even worthy of landing itself on the Top 10 listing of 2021 at the Number 8 spot.


7. Barefoot by the Bike Rack

Model: Allie
Published Date: May 5, 2021

Speaking of last minute, unplanned sets worthy of landing on this year's 10 favorites, here is another. Allie's set in front of a bike rack is a second example of things just working out on a whim. After shooting a set prior to this one, our location grew a little too crowded for our liking. We jumped in our cars and began looking for somewhere else to shoot. A few miles down the road, I spotted a bright blue bike rack and bench in front of a school. Since it was the summertime, we decided to use it.

Naturally, it wasn't this location that made it a memorable set. Nope. What earned it the Number 7 spot was it being a sneaker set with no socks. Allie looked adorable as can be kicking off those shoes and you can tell how soft and warm her feet are as they come off. Combined with the splash of blue I saw from the road (I love bright colors) and this set just melted my heart. I wonder if that was also caused by all that heat coming off her warm, sweaty feet?


6. Inchworm

Model: Melani
Published Date: June 2, 2021

Not too long after Melani began shooting, she confessed how much of a brat she can be and said that being bitchy is so much fun when it comes to boys. Well, in this set she wanted to focus on the boys who just don't measure up. And like Juliet, Melani pointed that mean girl attitude my way, earning this set the Number 6 spot.

Melani was totally in her element with this one, just like she was in her Bratty Schoolgirl set that took the Number 5 spot in 2019. Check out "My Favorite Sets of 2019," if you're wanna see another example of this bratty babe.

Like I said, much of Melani's meanness was directed right toward me. She stuck her feet out my way, just inches from the camera, letting me know that's where I belonged. I even rubbed her feet every few photos while she teasingly called me her foot bitch and foot boi. Wonder if she was just getting into the element or she meant it. I'm thinking she meant it. I know that plush inchworm spent a lot of time between her feet and used as some kind of symbolism. I wonder what it could have meant? Any ideas?


5. Ball Buster

Model: Kaycee
Published Date: January 13, 2021

There are brats and then there are ballbusting brats. Kaycee had never really showcased her meaner side on the site prior to this set. When I showed her my idea and asked her if she'd want to do it, she didn't hesitate to say to say yes. You have no idea how happy that made me. FemDom Kaycee sounded like someone I wanted to meet, even if it was all in good natured fun.

Earning the Number 5 spot, this set just blew me away. Kaycee didn't care that people kept going by us in boats along the river, even with the bold white text on her deep blue shirt reading, "Ball Buster." There's no way no one else saw this set being shot out in public. We didn't care. As Kaycee would say, "Fuck'em!" She was having a blast squishing some big soft blue balls under her feet and I was having every bit of shooting the set. I knew I had a hit on my hands only a few photos in on this one.


4. Oh So Warm

Model: Ava
Published Date: June 16, 2021

The sets earning spots 1-4 were the ones I had the most difficulty placing. After so much swapping and over-thinking, I busted my own balls and finalized their final ranks. Taking the Number 4 spot is Ava. So many of you know this set and know it is one I freaking adore. Heck, the same exact photo above adorns the site's header bar in the site's guest section.

One thing Ava has come to learn these last couple of years is my fondness for her big feet in sneakers. She knows I'll love them even more if she's not wearing sneakers too, so she's always teasing me with the idea of shooting a set in a different pair of her many shoes. When the weather is warm, she even uses that to her advantage knowing I won't turn down the opportunity to be in front of her sweaty, warm feet. She's turned me into a fanboy of those sweaty size 9's. No shame in admitting my love for them.

This particular set ranks right up there among some of the best sneaker sets I've ever done. Not only did Ava look gorgeous, but her feet were indeed sweaty. Add in the bright colors between her outfit, hair, toenails, and the setting, and this set just popped! Now I feel the need to get in front of Ava's sweaty sneaker-clad feet again...


3. Ode to Elmer Batters

Model: Mindee
Published Date: August 11, 2021

In the Number 3 spot we have Mindee again, but not for the final time either. This infamous shoot is the one which entered her into the 9K Club (9,000 photos) back in August. 

Like with Ava's sneaker photo above, this particular shot is also featured predominately to visitors, with this one being on the welcome page. As a matter of fact, Mindee has been found in the site's welcome graphic for more than a decade at this point. When it came time to freshen things up for 2021, one thing I knew was that she was going to keep that well-earned spot. 

When this set was published, in an ode to Elmer Batters, whose book can be seen in the set, I published both a color and black and white version. The idea came to me as I was sitting down to prepare the update. When I asked Mindee what she thought of the idea, she said she loved it. 

I said above that Mindee and I nail it whenever we go into a set without any planning, or even without the slightest idea of what we want to do. A set like this shows you that we also nail the ones that we do plan out. Speaking of which...


2. 8-Bit Size 8's

Model: Mindee
Published Date: March 10, 2021

The Number 2 spot also goes to Mindee. Over the last few years, instead of just going back through every set at the end of the year, I've been ranking them as I go with each update. Well, this set had been sitting in the Number 1 spot ever since it's March 10, 2021 publish date. That was until December 22, 2021. More on that in a bit.

Whenever I combine other things I enjoy into my shots, it tends to make them that much better. I've done a few sets with video game themes in the past, but none come close to this one. Seeing Mindee with my old Nintendo,  some games, controllers, a zapper, and those warm grey socks, still has me arguing with myself on whether or not this set should be Number 1. I don't think I've debated the Top 2 as much as I have here in 2021.


1. Naughty or Nice?

Model: Ava
Published Date: December 22, 2021

On December 22, 2021 I published the set that ultimately takes the Number 1 spot on this year's list. Like Mindee's set above, there were a ton of props tossed into this one. And while I do like the Nintendo props more, these props in Ava's 2021 Christmas set created so many fun poses throughout. I told Ava while working on this update that I loved how front and center her wrinkly soles were in each and every photo. If you like big feet and bare soles, I know you probably felt the same way.

Ava's candy cane striped socks were what ultimately inspired this set, with the soles of those socks reading "Naughty" and "Nice." I teased Ava that there was no doubt that naughty was more appropriate in her case. She laughed and then proceeded to bring some of that same teasing energy she brought in her ball busting set shown in the Honorable Mentions above. See, I was right! Naughty...

Over the years I have done quite a few Christmas sets and most of them have been very memorable. There is just something about this set, however, that makes it not only my all-time favorite Christmas set, but my overall favorite set of 2021.

Congratulations to all the models above and thank you for all your time and efforts that went into making these memorable sets happen. I'm sure you'll be seeing these models competing for spots on next year's list as well. Will Ava be able to claim the Number 1 spot in 2022? She's already got a handful of sets waiting to be published this year. I can't wait to see.
