Hello. We are Ash & Kellen. We are WeeNo Photography.

Its been good blogspot...

Pin It I have been mentioning that I am rebranding ( getting a new logo/look/ feel) and its FINALLY done! I'm beyond exciting. I feel like I've grown up and made it to the "real" photographers. Although, I'm sure that just because I have a blog site doesn't mean that... But! We've changed the blog and from now on go over to


for all the goodness!

Thanks blogspot for the many years!

The 1 year mark.

Pin It January 19th.

My mom went to see God last year today. I can't believe its been a year, and I can't believe the things Kellen and I have done. I got to go to India and spread my mums ash's, we moved out of my house (which was hard.. what do you do with all the yearbook and keepsakes?! thank goodness my brother moved in and I got to keep some stuff in the attic.) We went to visit Kellens family, who embraced me as their own and who I'm so grateful to have. When Jesus gives us another family, I now know why. And now we are in Portland. I'm happy. We are happy. We have a cute house, and jobs, and Weeno is getting there. 

But my sister sent me a text today, she said "the idea of a lifetime without her still seems unbearable." And my heart breaks, because its only been a year. To be honest, I'm scared, and  don't understand how to do life without her. I'm not sure how to have kids, how to raise them, how to go through the hard times in my life, and happy times. There's a hole, a void, a space that is begging to be filled. 

I'm grateful for the mom I did have, she was incredible, and I'm happy I had her for as long as I did. She was great person, and a great mother. I know I'm not the only person who's had loss in their family, and I hope I don't sound like that. I appreciate all of the comments, the words and the love that is coming through to me and my family today.

Without you, without my husband, without my friends, and certainly without God I would be a wreck, all day, every day. But I'm not. Its hard to imagine life without her, and scary to.. but she wouldn't want me to stop..

So with this. Its a new year, and I will make her proud of me.
I will be grateful.
I will do my best to make my life great and do good things.
I'll do my best not to be selfish, and put others needs ahead of mine.

And with Weeno, we have a lot of new things ahead. A new branding is on the way. Which means, this blog will no longer be, and a new website.... a new beginning. I'm hoping it will embrace me as much as I've embraced it.

So here's to learning, and being, and making the best of the worst..

Mum. I love you  & I miss you till my body aches... but I will make you proud of me.

Quitting our "normal" jobs.

Its been an interesting couple of years. Kellen and I put our lives on hold to take care of my mum. And I wish I could personally thank each person who prayed for us and my family. We are so grateful. But, now Kellen and I are in Portland, and started our lives together. Finally! This year we are re-branding (I can't wait to reveal it to you!) and I'm finally putting our photography out there. I have to be honest with you all, some days I feel like a photographer, and then I look at all the amazing photographers out there and wonder if I'll make it. So for 2012 we will do our best. I will do what I feel God is asking of me, and I will take each day for what it is. So here's to 2012 and new beginnings!

love letters

the biggest party ever!

Pin It In the month of December I get so excited for the Christmas season. I love getting a christmas tree, decorating it with all the sentimental ornaments, listening to the christmas songs, and finding gifts for the ones I love. AND! of course I love getting Christmas cards. They are so exciting.. always a highlight of the month.

This year Kellen and I stayed in Portland... Since we just got here, and got jobs it was nearly impossible to leave. So we made the best of it. We had gifts mailed to us, mailed gifts to them, and decorated. And for this year we get to enjoy each other, and a quite Christmas. We got up at 5 AM this morning (We were really excited!)  and opened the few presents under the tree and thought of our families in California and Wisconsin. We then had some eggs benedict (because we've made that our Christmas tradition.) We've also "Face Time"ed with some, and hopefully more tonight. I love technology!

But as this day goes by I keep pinching myself not to forget the real reason for Christmas. Its Jesus' birthday.. the day my savior was born. He was born for me. for kellen. for our families. and for everyone on this earth. I am grateful. And he is the best present of them all. This afternoon after our thanks to God, I thought of my mum and wished she was here. This is our first Christmas without her... and Kellen reminded me that this is her first Christmas with Jesus! And that she is in heaven celebrating the biggest celebration with her family. It was great reminder to not be selfish in this time, but be thankful.

So for that I'm thankful. I'm thankful that Jesus was born today, and that my mum gets to celebrate and be at his birthday party! I bet its the best of them all!

Below is a just a super cute video of some kiddos in Auckland. Its been making its way around facebook, so maybe you've seen it.. If not its short, sweet and to the point! I hope your Christmas was as beautiful as ours is. We are looking forward to the new year and all it holds for us!


A Crafty Christmas

A Perlberg Crafty Christmas & some other stuff...

Welp My favorite time of the year is here! I am so excited to have our own place where we can do what we like to do, and decorate the way we love to decorate. I am in love & obsessed with Pinterest (much to Kellens dismay) and got plenty of ideas for this year! We made some epic yarn balls. Small ones for the tree, a medium for the top of the tree, and big ones for our chandler!  I'm also obsessed with pallets. They turn into such random things, and the wood is so great! We went to a restore and got a few. Kellen turned a few into some shelves. AWESOME! And we have my grandma and grandpa's wedding photos displayed in them. Plus an orchid in honor of my mum. We also have lots of owls, and cameras! Most have all been given to me. I love them!! 

But my most favorite thing in our house, is our mantle! Kellen just whipped out that wood (made from pallets) extension for the mantle, and I printed on some old pages to make a "French" Christmas  banner. I'm in love.

I hope your Christmas is as wonderful as it is for us. And if you haven't joined pinterest, DO IT NOW! :)
