Hollywood Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

Hollywood has changed so much over the last 17 years! It has been an incredible journey growing up with the city! I will miss so many things about it, but I won't miss the streets constantly being closed off for Premieres & events!

Hollywood Walk Of Fame Photo by Denise Vasquez

I love being able to share stories with my photographs! As I'm about to move away from Hollywood after 17 years, I'm sitting here reflecting on all of the beautiful moments, people, connections, jobs, gigs, bookings, show & incredible opportunities I've experienced! One of my favorite things about living in Hollywood was being able to walk down from the Hollywood Bowl & follow the Stars along the Walk Of Fame with my camera ready to capture the candid moments of inspiration! There's always something happening all around you between the trees, birds, tourists, artists, locals...Hollywood is an incredible city filled with dreamers, doers & opportunities!

I can watch gorillas all day, especially the babies. They are so curious, playful, cute and smart enough to know it! As soon as this baby Gorilla realized I was pointing my camera his way, he posed for the camera!

I feel so blessed to have captured the moments of a baby giraffe being born & on my birthday! Happy birthday to us! I loved celebrating life while witnessing it all, especially this moment between mother & baby! I have a new respect for giraffes! They're truly incredible! Not only do they give birth standing up, I had no idea baby giraffes stood up so quickly after being born until I saw it for myself!

I managed to capture the family come together to share in the moment!

Witnessing Birth Photo by Denise Vasquez

On June 29th, my boyfriend & I celebrated my birthday by going on a Safari in San Diego. During the Safari our guide pointed out that one of the Giraffes was leaking which meant her water broke. She mentioned it could be days before the baby would be born, little did I know I would be there to witness the birth of a baby giraffe on my birthday! Here's a moment I captured where you can see the baby's legs coming out of the mother giraffe while the father stands guard.

San Diego Comic Con Photos by Denise Vasquez

Every year over 100,000 people from around the world venture to San Diego for Comic Con. I've been attending San Diego Comic Con as a professional artist since 2007 & I have to say, this was the best one yet! Maybe that's because I recently moved to San Diego & I love it...maybe it's because our new place is amazing & walking distance from the Convention Center...maybe it was the art, people, connections, energy, cosplay...or maybe it was just everything! I managed to capture some amazing candid moments with my camera! Here are some of my favorites:

Sleeping Lion Photo by Denise Vasquez

I thought that all the Lions were sleeping because it was such a hot day, but then I learned that Lions can sleep in crazy poses up to 21 hours a day! I captured this moment with my Canon EOS 80D & Canon Zoom EF 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 L IS USM Lens.

The Cuatro Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

Shortly before my grandfather passed away, he gave me a beautiful gift. I was visiting him in Puerto Rico while he was recovering from a Heart attack. After years of not really understanding my choice in life to be an artist, at the age of 92, my grandfather finally accepted me for who I am. He seemed excited as he explained to me the importance of keeping our culture alive through my art & music. We ventured to a music store & he proudly presented me with the national instrument of Puerto Rico, The Cuatro. For me The Cuatro will forever be a symbol of culture, love & acceptance.

The Mighty Elephant Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

I fell in love with elephants after seeing "Dumbo" as a child. They're such amazing animals & so interesting to watch! They're big, strong & smarter than most people presume. On hot days, they flap their ears to stay cool, use their trunk to spray themselves with water & roll around in mud for protection against the sun. The elephant trunk is their upper lip & nose which they use to touch, grab, hold, pick up, push, pull & throw things. Their trunk is strong enough to knock down a tree & agile enough to pick up small leaves to eat.

My favorite thing about traveling is discovering new things, including architecture! I loved seeing the textures & colors of the buildings reflecting off each other. I'm so happy I was able to capture this moment while in San Diego!

The Jaguar Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

Jaguars are the biggest felines in the Americas & the third largest in the world after the Tiger & Lion. Often confused with Leopards, Jaguars have spots inside their Rosettes, they are stockier, have shorter legs & tail. As I walked by this majestic Jaguar, the intense eyes caught my attention & brought me to a complete stop! Jaguars hunt day & night. Their beautiful eyes have eyeshine caused by the tapetum lucidum, allowing them to have better night vision.
