Maddy’s mother told the Huffington Post why she chose to work with these two brands. She said: “Both companies approached us to do a photo shoot for them, and after looking at their products we believed the products would be a good fit, as Maddy loves fitness and the brand was cute and inclusive. EverMaya has not only beautiful products that are very well made, but also have a very charitable belief, so they were a perfect match. We are very happy to be working with EverMaya again shortly in New York City in the beginning of August.”
