Photographer Amanda J. Alvares is a huge fan of The Walking Dead and turned her passion for the show, and all things zombies, into a lucrative idea for her photography business. But the idea actually came about thanks to a creative little kid.

The California resident told Bored Panda that two years ago she had her first Halloween mini session. “One client had her children come as zombies and the rest is history.”

Each photo shoot involves a make-up artist to make the subject look “undead” and Amanda does the rest in post editing. Each image “takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes to hand edit” depending on the make-up and overall theme of the shot.

Here are some of Amanda’s best zombie pictures involving both kids and adults.
