Melanie Rodriguez was born in France in 1980. She was introduced to photography at a very young age; at 15 she started learning film developing process, and she fell in love. That is, in the short version, how Melanie became a full time photographer. Some stories are simple and intense, a bit like Melanie’s work.

My daughter is second hand Rose by name and second hand Rose by nature – there is nothing in her wardrobe that was bought new! Her father deals in vintage clothes and she has everything from a Kiss tour jackets to a wonderful ballet dress designed by Margot Fonteyn’s dress designer (given to her by our neighbour). New things – her grandmother knits her beautiful cardigans, hats and gloves. Primark for knickers and socks!

Moschino, Todd Oldham, Cacharel, Tommy Hilfiger
Your favorite children’s stores
Do you buy a lot online for your children and what are your favorite e-stores?
I do buy a lot of things online. You can get just about everything at Amazon at great prices too: books, toys, films, music etc. If I can’t get what I want there I go to John Lewis or The Early Learning Centre
What are the criteria you consider when you buy something for child
Most expensive item you bought for your child
Rose fell in love with a pair of beautiful red polka-dot flamenco shoes that she saw in a shoe shop window while we were on holiday in Las Palmas – so I bought them for her as a surprise – she calls them her Dorothy shoes. I also bought a portfolio of French 1930s school posters from an antique shop near her grandparents apartment in Pezanas, Southern France. They now hang on her bedroom wall
Favorite piece in her wardrobe
The Dorothy shoes!
Where are you going for the summer holidays
We live right by the sea in Broadstairs, Kent – a lovely old English sea side resort. We will be staying at home for the Summer holidays (as usual) as there is nowhere else we would rather be – you can’t beat Broadstairs in the Summer! And all our friends come and stay!
I am very excited to feature Smories.com on Pirouette. It is a wonderful free website where children can watch short films of new stories being narrated by other children. Smories has been dubbed the “perfect bridge between the traditional book and the future of digital story telling”. London duo Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar got the idea for Smories.com while on holiday during a long journey in a very dirty Land Rover from the Kalahari desert in Botswana to Cape Town in South Africa earlier this year. ”Our 8 year-old daughter had the idea to film herself reading Enid Blyton short stories with our ipod, and then play them back to her younger sister. This kept them entertained for hours”. Mine woke up this morning asking for more smories. A very special bravo and thank you to Lisa and Ralph for their genius idea.
