Family Scenes from the Fall/Winter 2023 – Shot on Film Series

Personal Work

From hot, fall weather to icy winters – here’s a little bit of everything that I shot on film during the fall and winter of 2023.

The first series of photos where my kids playing in the water is from when we all had Covid. As you can see, the kids felt fine. And while I took the photos of them, I felt fine too. Photography is its own medicine.

After going through these images, I realized there wasn’t much of my family’s actual fall season in here. I guess I was so busy with Meredith Green Photography this fall, that I didn’t take any photos on film of our everyday adventures. Looking back now, I’m bummed I let laziness and my burnt-outness get in the way. Note to self – don’t do that.

However, in January, I picked my camera back up on a 60 degree day as the kids, Roux and I walked around the neighborhood. I shot a roll of film quickly to get back into it. Plus, my kids are into me taking pictures of while they climb trees and don’t complain. A win for everyone!

In January, I also joined The Artist Collab because I was looking for a way to hold myself accountable for creating. I practiced double exposures (a lot). I also had one accidental light leak that worked in my favor! Plus, I created this image based on a prompt from a TS Elliott poem. This was something way out of my comfort zone, but the group is so supportive and creative. I have been inspired by the creations from this group!

Next is what is becoming all too common in North Texas now, an icy February. We were iced in for five days. Four of those days were nothing but grey and dreary. But once the sun came out, I stepped outside to capture the icy beauty. By the next week, we were back to warmer days.

Connor and Parker also turned seven and five in February, so I captured their personalities as they played in the back yard. I let them tell me what they wanted for a few of their photos.

The last image is a self portrait I took after I finished reading “The War of Art.” The book was an creative awakening in a lot of ways. In this images, I was writing and reflecting and coming up with a game plan after making the decision to transition to all film photography for my business. However, after months of feeling scared and nervous and sorting through all the “what ifs,” I didn’t feel uncertain about it anymore. In fact, I knew it was exactly what I had to do. The book removed that last barrier that was keeping me from walking down a path I never saw coming, but presented itself.
