*A Photographer Living The Dream in NYC!*


Hey there! I’m Martha Sachser, a Brazilian blogger and portrait photographer (yes, I shoot people in love, friends and families in the greates city of all! Chek more of my work HERE!). NY & About was born in 2012 in Portuguese and in 2016 I created this english version as well.

Through my work as a blogger I had the joy of working with some brands I love, you can see some of them below! If you believe we are a good fit, make sure to send an e-mail to comercial.marthasachser@gmail.com for more information on how we can collaborate and create something great!

I was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil  and in 2007 I left everything behind to live in the States, a dream I’ve had since I was a little girl. My first stop was in the DC area and in 2010 I finally moved to NY.

I grew up watching american films and TV series and shows like F.RI.E.N.D.S, Sex And The City, E! News. I dreamed that one day I would walk around the streets I used to see in the movies and would try to catch a yellow cab like Carrie Bradshaw!

One day I decided to stop wondering what my life would be like, packed everything and moved here! I know that a lot of people would like to do the same, so the blog aims to tell a bit about my life in America, places to visit in NYC, my trips ( In 2016 I had the joy of finishing one my many life goals – I visited all the 50 states!) and everything else in between!

If you are a New York lover like me, make sure to leave a comment telling me what is your favorite thing about the city! Meanwhile, here are some of mine so we can get to know each other better! Hope the blog is useful to you and I hope to see you back soon!
