How many kids can say they had a photo session…with a turkey? A REAL turkey? Probably not too many. But Evan can :D.
Evan was the contest winner for the most recent Manasota Kids Directory cover contest. Since our winner was going to be on the November cover, we wanted fall or Thanksgiving theme. I – almost jokingly – suggested to Peggy that it’d be great if we could find a real turkey that was tame enough to be in a picture with a child. Evan was up for the idea, so we decided to go for it.
Make sure to visit Manasota Kids to see the November issue! It’s online now
Special thanks to Dakin Dairy Farms for their help with this shoot! Their turkeys were tame enough for what we wanted, and they arranged to have us come to the farm and have the ‘turkey handler’ there to help out as well! If you haven’t done the Farm Tour at Dakin, you might want to check it out with your kids. Our homeschool group went there last year and everyone had a fantastic time! More info is on their website, and be sure to check out their ad in the Kids Directory as well:).
