They Grow Up So Fast


It seems just like yesterday she was eating her first foods, and today she set off on her first Zombie Walk, shuffling through the city in a Romero-esque manner.

We had our 4th annual Zombie Walk, a pre-halloween gathering where everyone showcases their love of campy zombies for a charity food drive (irony?). My oldest already has a flair for the dramatic so it wasn’t surprising that she zombied-up and stayed in perfect character for the five-block shuffle. The costume is courtesy of yours truly, making blood and scabby-stuff out of corn syrup, dye, flour and Hershey’s syrup. There were roughly 200 zombies that attended.

  1. Wow, what a great photo Brandon, so Dawn Of The Dead, your little one does the part so well, great bit of make up FX!

  2. Love the photo and the makeup! The first time I encountered the international zombie walk, I was with my 8-year old and she was scared for days after. Couldn’t fall asleep that first night even though she knew it was just a bunch of people in makeup.

  3. Hey Brandon, I’ve started up a new collaborative photography blog on post-processing. Emily and David are in and keen to post. I’m wondering if you’d be prepared to share some of your secrets too. The blog is at I’d love to have you come check it out and become a contributor so you can share some of your Lightroom secrets, like how you got the look above. I would love to see some posts about how you use curves as well. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll add you as a contributor.
