Tyler Jones co-founded Blue Heron Construction in 2003 with his father, Steve. They are champions of modern residential design here in the Las Vegas Valley. 
On a beautiful day a couple months ago, my assistant and I arrived early to  the location so we would be ready when Tyler arrived. Good thing we did because we wandered around the jaw dropping model home for almost an hour spinning with possibilities. 
Over the course of our time together, I really liked getting to know Tyler. For someone on the forefront of development and progress in a city that has been steadily growing 20k more residents a year, he is humble and but his energy is all determination. 
Read more about Tyler and Blue Heron in the October issue of Vegas Magazine.

Over the last 10-days in Las Vegas, my mind has oscillated from handling front-of-mind tasks to feeling blinded by a thick grey fog. Then, on Monday, I had a bright flash of happiness enter my world. I learned that two entrepreneurs I admire greatly, and just happen to own my favorite toy store, have expanded and opened a second location on the strip at the LINQ promenade.

Founders, Lizzy Newsome and Trevor Yopp, arrived to Las Vegas 3-years ago from Austin, TX. I remember the first time I meet them; they were unpacking boxes in the flagship location at the Container Park. Since that day, we’ve made a lot of memories together. They have such positive energy, you can’t help but feel happy when you're in their presence. Congratulations on your growth and success. You bring happiness to our city! .

William King narrowly escaped with his life last Sunday night. As he laid over his wife shielding her from gunfire, he took a bullet in the back. It exited his chest remarkably missing his organs and arteries. 
You can read more about William and his wife’s story online in the Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail.

Energy can experienced both positively and negatively. Capturing the energy that Las Vegas has felt ever since Sunday night's horrific Route 91 Harvest Festival, is an assignment I knew would come but I wasn’t sure if I wanted it, but this is a story that needs telling. 
I met two victims of the mass shooting, Kimberly and William King, at their home here in Las Vegas. I captured both still photos and video of their chilling account, telling me what happened that night. They talked about the emotional extremes they felt, and the guiding hand of a higher power directing them to safety. They recounted their journey to the hospital where the heroic staff were able to care for William’s bullet wound and save his life. Their story, which is one of thousands, will be published in an international publication, which I will share when live. Vegas is strong. .

As if I wasn’t already falling in love with this town, the scene at this baseball game really sealed the deal. This once a year match-up between the Marfa Los Yonke Gallos and the Austin Playboys reminded me of my days playing in the bar softball league in Williamsburg Brooklyn.

Before the game started, Tift Merritt gave a stellar performance of the National Anthem. I caught a fly foul ball and made some new friends. Simply a ⭐️day. .

I’m learning that moments of beautiful color and composition just happen naturally here in Marfa. 
This Katie works on top a mountain at a local observatory. Her blue wrap was made by a friend today at the Trans Pecos Festival at El Cosmico. Everyone we met here today at La Playa and Al Campo I hope to see again tonight as Wilco rocks the night sky in this little oasis. .

Marfa is one of those places that people have always said, “oh you've got to go sometime, you’d love it there!” They were all right, especially the photographers who said I'd love shooting. 
The landscape and modernist architecture gently carries with it an understated vibe that beckons your curiosity. At every turn in this tiny oasis there is something to consider. The festival at El Cosmico has brought an extra amazing energy in the air. 
Al Campo in Marfa is a gem in this high desert oasis. Katie the Chef, is one of those people whose great smile and cooking makes you feel right at home. .

I scream you scream let’s all cheer for more Meow Wolf! The Meow Wolf Artist ​C​ollective transformed the Art Motel at LIB. The world they created resonated ​with an​ unparalleled energy. 
This weekend I’ll be capturing moments in Marfa,TX at Al Campo during the Trans Pecos Art & Music Festival. Two festivals​,​ two weekends in a row. My creative cup is full and I’m grateful for opportunities to have these experiences! .
