Tell us about Mrs Sizzle and how it all started?
At Mrs. Sizzle, we focus on gorgeous art and photography to inspire a conversation about animal awareness. Mrs. Sizzle delivers fashion trends for you and your pets, great doggie products, moving rescue stories and a great source on where to adopt your next pet. In addition; we offer branding and marketing services for your pet products or a fashion inspired line.
After getting two puppies in February of 2013 I kept thinking there must be a way to marry my love for photography with dogs. With my exposure to the worlds of fashion and photography as the former Executive Photo director at Glamour magazine for the past twelve years, I have created a website that merges the unique perspectives of both worlds into one!
Tell us about the work you are currently doing to help raise awareness of animal rescue charities.
Here at Mrs. Sizzle we hope to educate. As someone who made the mistake of walking into a puppy store to purchase 2 dogs, I want to make sure that people are made aware that there are millions of dogs waiting to be rescued, many of whom are puppies. As a result, I have vowed that wherever possible I will take pictures of dogs available for adoption. For instance, when I show a product, I try to do so with the help of a group of animals waiting for their forever homes. Not only does a good picture look good but it increases the chance of these creatures being adopted.
We cover New York city and are amenable to taking as many pics as we can during one sitting. Feel free to reach out to us at Suzanne@mrssizzle.com for us to arrange a photographer and a chance to help some of these shelter animals get a home. Should you need help in finding your next animal we can assist you there too!
In addition, as I now live in LA I do my best to stay current on animals with agencies that I know that are up for adoption which I try to feature in my feed.
Tell us about the Sizzle Sisters and how they came into your life?
The most horrendously divine thing I ever did was walk into Barking Babies and purchase two dogs.
You ask me why horrendous? They most likely came from a puppy mill and I have since educated myself and advocate against them ferociously.
The Sizzle are the reason I got involved in rescue.
How does having two dogs fit into your general working day?
We do big outings at the beginning and end of the day and otherwise they sit peacefully at my feet until a delivery is made, then all hell breaks loose!
When you’re not working where do you like to head out to with the dogs?
Beach or the hills as you can see from Instagram
What essentials do you always have on you when heading out for a dog walk?
Bio bag scrunched in a pocket and bottle of water that I share.
