Katie & Ellie ~ A Gift for the Hero

Katie’s husband, Benjamin, is scheduled to return home in October – after 1 year in Iraq. It’s one year too long, but Katie knows that military service means putting country first. She lives in Dixon, Illinois, but came to Davenport – also where Benjamin’s unit is based – to be photographed with the couple’s Sheltie, Ellie, in late July.

Katie wrote me the following about Benjamin before we met:

Not only does he serve in the military, he also is a volunteer firefighter/EMT. He takes his leadership position very seriously, but also knows how to keep the morale up with his soldiers. He is my Hero.

I got word from Katie today that Benjamin received his session album – a complimentary gift via Operation: Love Reunited. And I’m excited to meet him when he comes home this fall! This is a glimpse of what Benjamin got in the mail:
