Billie Holiday is my rat daughter. She's from South LA Shelter! #ADOPT

Marissa is a pet photographer based in Downtown Los Angeles who has been active in the humane treatment of animals for more than eight years. She has committed the rest of her life to continue helping furry creatures find the loving homes they deserve through the power of photography.

 

Marissa successfully raised over ten thousand dollars with Kickstarter to raise the funds to self publish her first photo book, Dawgs of Downtown LA. 

You can check out her campaign here: 

 

She loves Ella Fitzgerald, people watching, buckwheat pancakes with blueberries, and is suspect of humans who don't like dogs, or the artist Prince. Marissa grew up in the Bay Area, but now calls DTLA her home. You will often find her roaming the city streets, taking pictures of mammals, or eating tacos. Of course, not necessarily in that order.
