My name is Rachel Benavides, and I'm a professional photographer. You might remember me as Rachel Durrent. I married my best friend in April.
I love people and stories. I wish I could be everyone's friend and I try my best to be just that a friend, I love meeting new people and getting to know their story. I like to write but I'm not that good at it. I love telling stories with photos it’s so much fun, to be able to look back and remember the moments that go by so quickly. I hope that I can use the talent God gave me to bless others with photos.
For over 3 years now I've been working with The Bend Magazine as their lead Photographer, it's a blessing I love working with them. It's opened up so many doors for me, I've been traveling more this past year and loving every moment of it and meet new friends. I would love to hear.
I come from a big family: Mom, Dad, my 3 brothers, and 2 sisters. Growing up was a blast. We traveled from place to place, and we were able to appreciate many parts of this beautiful country. (I think that I had one of the best childhoods!) We lived on a boat in Florida, a ranch in North Carolina and even traveled with the circus for an entire summer! Because we spent so much time on the road, my mom home-schooled us. For over a decade, I've lived in Corpus Christi.
Although I do most of my work in Corpus Christi and south Texas, I love to travel, and I would love to hear from you.
