I have had the privilege of calling Maddy my cousin officially since marrying my husband four years ago, but have known her as family since she was about seven. She is a very bright and motivated young lady who wants to be a writer. I'm so excited to see what the world has in store for her and truly enjoyed spending a few hours with her exploring some of Chicago's best parks. She has the most genuine smile + laugh, looks great in blue and has an inside joke with friends involving a Batman mask. These images reflect the best of her and her spirit.
