The Softer Side of Vegas


How many of you expected me to come back from Vegas with shots filled with neon and slot machines?
And how many of you expected me to come back with exactly what you're seeing?

I definitely went the other direction with my camera and from my perspective I captured the softer side of Vegas. We stayed on the strip the entire time and surprisingly it's not all gambling, cigarettes, and sin....it's mostly those things, but not all.


LV---Pink-Gate-11x14

This bright pink gate was in the conservatory/wildlife area of the Flamingo.


Carousel-Bokeh-2-11x14

The Bellagio had the best non-Vegas features, such as this carousel.
And the art installations....oh my...gorgeous stuff! I'll share shots of those soon.


Sugar-Factory-Lollipops-11x

There was also a newer store on the strip called the Sugar Factory.
It was a mix of super pricey candy, sassy tee shirts, I think they might have even had a makeup counter?, and an attached restaurant.
{I could easily see a playboy bunny shopping there}


Sweet Shot Day

  15. I love your perspective on Vegas. Funny, I work with a very christian man who recently went for a seminar and he said while Vegas has its sinful side, it also has a clean, fun, family side, too. You just have to seek that side out. Your pictures really are beautiful!

  18. I have neer been to Vegas, as I didn't think I liked the vibe that was usually seen there. These make it much more palatable and a place I think I might be more comfortable visiting! Thank you for sharing...

  19. Ok, so I love the way the light looks like it's dripping off of the carousel!!! Beautiful captures. The gate photo is my fave though. It looks like a secret passage or something. Very magical!
