Two years ago I met Melaine at the fair, and we did a couple of shoots together that were really fun. I had hoped to work with her some more but she doesn’t live in Humboldt County, and I lost track of her after her phone and email changed. I had just about given up hope of doing another shoot with her when she contacted me to let me know she was going to be in Ferndale again. I had hoped to work outdoors with her, but today was very drippy so we spent some time in the studio, photographing her in some of Lori’s costumes. Here she’s modeling a 1770s period corset that Lori made.
