You can use the default chrome profile.

options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()

options.add_argument("user-data-dir=PATH") #)PATH is path to your chrome profile

w = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\\Users\\chromedriver.exe", chrome_options=options)

To find path to your chrome profile data, type chrome://version/ into address bar.
