about your presenter

Aly Nickerson is a storyteller at home and for other families in the metro Atlanta suburbs. She has a passion for authenticity and empowering others to be their most vulnerable selves. When she’s not photographing her 2 boys, you can often find her in front of the camera as self-portraiture is her favorite form of expression. Aly also loves enneagram memes, her dogs, visiting local breweries, and tending to her houseplants.
