The Importance of Photography with Wendy Maybury
Wendy’s report cards always said, “Wendy shares too much with her neighbors and disrupts the class.”
What they should have said was, “Wendy would be an awesome comedian!”
Wendy loves to make people laugh by entertaining them with stories about her crazy Southern family and life’s little embarrassments.
She placed second in the Funniest Person with a Day Job contest, and was voted by her peers as “Favorite New Comic & Favorite Female Comic.”
She has performed at clubs, schools, corporate events and even at a wedding!
Whether she’s in a dive bar, or opening for Louie Anderson for several thousand people at the Minneapolis convention center, Wendy Maybury is a comedic force to be reckoned with.
Wendy is a comedy superstar in the making, so catch her while she’s still humble and gives hugs after the show.

- Reframe the way you speak about your children to support the positive narrative of your child’s life and personality and how they identify themselves.
- Have a list of things that fills your tank so you can make sure you are really taking care of yourself- so you can give to your children.
- Use the phone you have on you, the camera you have on you- to snap photos just to get the moment documented.
- Do not worry about the way you look. We always look better looking back and you will be sad to not have those documented photos.
- You never look a picture of your grandma and comment on their face/ wrinkles/ etc. They just love that they have a picture of grandma.
- Put a great photo of your family when you walk in your home, it gives a good emotional hit for your house when you walk in.
- You can tell yourself and your kids a good story or a bad story- so curate the story you want.
- Try to get family photos twice a year to record your lives and stories.
- Don’t worry about what to do with them right now, just get the pictures. They are growing up so fast and will never look the same.
- If you can laugh about something in 10 years, just laugh about it now.

How to Capture Everyday Moments
- Use whatever camera you have on you- usually your phone and just snap and document the moment.
- To organize your photos, create folders in your phone per child/person.
- When you have a moment, go through your photos and mark them as favorites.
- Then move them into the folders.
- Print them and make them into a little book. Groovebook is a great resource where you get 100 photos off your phone.
