Don’t you just love Halloween?

1318970597460858
Don’t you just love Halloween? I know I do….It is not the candy…. it is not the costumes…
It is not the parties that both young and old alike attend. It is not the corn mazes that you can get lost in. I have never under stood the combination of eating donuts and drinking apple cider so it sure is not that.

Haunted houses…. well they can be real fun. Several places offer haunted houses that you can venture into if you are brave enough.. I must tell you a story about that. Many years ago we picked up the neighbor boy Brian to go to a haunted house in Dundee. He was probably about 13 at the time. While standing in line waiting for our turn, we watched the people as they exited the haunted house. Many were crying.. most were laughing… almost all were holding onto each other. It really was fun to watch them. Then it was our turn.. Now I had never been to a haunted house before and I certainly had never taken anyone… of course at the last minute my husband decided that he had to be somewhere else at the exact time we were being ushered into this deep dark hole……Words can NOT express what the haunted house was like. I can only tell you what it was like to have a kid hide his head in my back covering his eyes with my sweater shoving me all the way though and screaming… now mind you this kid didn’t see anything.. he couldn’t of.. his head was buried in my back… Yes it was very scary.. The minute we got out my husband was waiting for us, and Brian said… “that wasn’t so bad.. can we go again????”

Nope…. none of that is why I love Halloween…. I love this time of year because on the radio I can hear this great song…… You can’t help but tap your toes and dance the Monster Mash right along with them…. I especially love the Crypt Kicker Five outfits. If I were dressing up for a Halloween party I would dress like those gals… gotta love a good looking outfit like that.

I hope you enjoy Bobby “Boris” Picket and the Crypt Kicker Five as much as I do. I have my dancing shoes on… how about you?

Tera Shaffer Photography, Portrait and Event Photographer

1468515_575870219147622_1826971546_a I started dabbling in photography about 10 years ago. I began working with another wedding photographer and learned a lot about the business! Because I knew so many Ida high school students, I started doing senior pictures. This escalated into my current business.  I now specialize in senior pictures.  I also shoot weddings, events, families and couples.

I am married to Bryan Shaffer and we have 3 children, Rylee (first grader in Ida), Braxton & Reagan (Braxton & Reagan are future Blue Streaks). I am actually from Cincinnati. My husband introduced me to this small town and I quickly fell in love with it! The people are great. The school is even better and I would not raise my family anywhere else. It amazes me that 95% of all my business is done in Ida. That is probably why I love doing my job. I get to work with people from this community and capture moments for them!

I currently coach Ida Middle School Sideline Cheerleading.
I just stepped down as the Ida Varsity Cheer coach to make more time for my family. I could not give up coaching all together so I stepped down to help middle school girls!
I am a member of the Ida PTA

I have had the opportunity to take pictures for Ida Intramural basketball & Ida PTA Soccer league. I also do middle school sports pictures at Ida (Volleyball, cheer and wrestling) I am also the Ida Prom photographer

I am very involved with Young Life. I have been a leader at Ida’s Young Life, working with high school kids, since 2008. My current role in Young Life is on the Adult Committee, which supports the young life program and leaders.

I currently volunteer my photography services at Ida Elementary School. I take pictures for the “Character Strikes in Me” program every month. The students all receive a photo to honor their good behavior that is promoted at Ida. It is a really cool program and I love being able to help it out!

I really do consider myself a fan of All Things Ida…
