Behind the Camera

My name is Shannon Henige. I am a middle school teacher and coach by day and a photographer in my off time. Photography has been in my blood since birth. In the 1930's, my grandfather was developing his own photos in a darkroom in his house, and my mother always was the event photographer when I was growing up, documenting anything that happened in the family. Muddy Waters Photography happened by chance when I bought my first good camera to document my son's milestones, but could never put the camera down. In the years to come, I hope you enjoy all that my lens has to offer. 
What is Muddy Waters?

Muddy is my (family's) dog. He's a Chocolate Lab, and part of the inspiration behind my business name. The other part comes from my need, my desire, my infatuation with being around water. Since birth, my summers have been spent in the Les Cheneaux Islands of Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula. I do not have a desire to travel to far away and exotic places when I have this beautiful corner of the world to spend my time. Most of my photos have been taken in the Islands, and those photos are the focus of my talents. I don't currently shoot weddings but am opening up my schedule to family, senior, and pet portraits, as well as sports teams.
