​​Hi my name is Mel Rodriguez, I am a true New Yorker born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx, spent most of my Childhood in PuertoRico and now I call Antelope Valley Califronia home.  I am a proud mother of four wonderful kids and yes I am a dance mom, they are the reason why I love being behind the camera. 

I am a freelance, Dance photographer / photojournalist who absolutely loves her job and everything that comes with it.  I appreciate the people I meet , the places I go and the raw reality of everyday life and the beauty of those in between moments and every picture I take is with all of this in mind.  I want my Clients to relate to my photos the emotion and beauty I get to see everyday.
