Target is one of those inevitable big box retailers that seems to provide everything that one person could ever need, even across several different income brackets. And that’s exactly what the large chain strives for: a wealth of products in all levels of daily life, offered at competitive prices, with niche items to fill out anyone’s wish list. At the Charleston Boulevard location of this red and white-tinged store, customers can hunt for finds from home décor to clothing to electronics, then snack out at the food court with pizza, popcorn, refreshments and simple quick-service dishes. Looming large between a Bath and Body Works, Ross discount retailer and several restaurants, this Las Vegas Target serves the local community looking to do all of their shopping in one place.
Traveling photographer Adam Trujillo—who splits his time between Las Vegas and Portland—forges strong relationships with his clients, getting to know couples before documenting their weddings or earning the trust integral for successful boudoir shoots. During nuptials, Adam anticipates emotional moments, positioning himself to capture the tearful close of a father-daughter dance or the adorable, scrunched-up face the officiant makes during the couple’s first kiss. Alternatively, his tasteful boudoir shots sizzle without relying on clichéd pinup poses; Trujillo’s editorial style and eye for dramatic shadows add an air of mystery to portraits of women reclining in bubbly bathtubs or lounging in intricate lingerie.
The mural in the play space at A Puppy Paradise imagines what an idyllic dog haven might look like. Sunflowers are in bloom, frisbees are in flight, and puppies play in the fountain without getting yelled at by the park inspector. Though the daycare's indoor areas are less grassy, they are rife with toys, soft beds, and the chance for canine guests to socialize. In three play spaces, pet-loving staff pair dogs with equally-sized playmates before doling out treats and making sure everyone gets along. In the evenings, overnight boarders snuggle up with cozy blankets, while owners sleep soundly in the knowledge that someone is keeping an eye on their pups.
