Proust Questionnaire: Liz Bradley


The Proust Questionnaire is a mini-interview. Its name and modern popularity (see Vanity Fair) is owed to the responses given by the French writer Marcel Proust.


Liz Bradley is a terrific nerd, whom I respect and admire deeply. She is a super photographer with a keen eye, and a beautiful family. Her daughter is also one of the luckiest babies I've ever seen...

Leopard print pants. Enough said.

Stop worrying and trust the photographer. They know what they are doing and will give you the tools to make you look the best.
