I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the people involved in making this Zombie Attack Christmas Card happen.
First of all, credit where credit is due. My friend, Nicole Allen (http://yellowhouse-photography.com) was the one who sent me the link to the blog that inspired this.

Next, on my thank you list is our photographer! (…no, I did not take all these with a tripod. ) Thank you to my favorite sister, Amy Gray (www.AmyGrayPhotography.com) for shooting this session for us! She did an amazing job and I ended up editing about 80 photos from the session! She took some really beautiful (normal) family photos during this session as well that I will be giving to grandparents who may not be quite so zombie-friendly.
Next, but certainly not least – OUR ZOMBIE! Our friend, Andy (Guncle Andy to the girls), was the star of the show! I was asked by one individual, “How did you talk your friend into doing that for you?!” It didn’t take much talking at all! I just sent him an email with a link to Amanda Rynda’s zombie engagement session and said, “We want to do a zombie attack family christmas card photo this year. Will you be our zombie?” The response was a resounding, “HECK YA!” He was totally on board even before I told him I’d give him a family session for him and his wife and (adorable!) baby boy. Andy works for KPBS and is an incredibly talented film-maker, video-editor, and monster make up artist. It’s handy to have talented friends! Andy spent over an hour and a half on the makeup, and provided his own costume for this session. You rocked our zombie world, Andy! Thank you!!
