    @MrsKittyMt:  In my opinion being a pro photographer having your children in it would make it more of a “family” shoot than “engagement”. Engagement is suppose to be for jut you and your Husband.  Although, I have had some couple who included their children.  It just depends on you taste.  Would you rather have a picture of the two of you or a family style portrait?

    Here’s what I shot for two families.  The kids were small, but the feeling was there.  My advice is to have fun and do what’s natural.  You could also get props like windmills, balloons, parasols, flowers, funny hats – do what feels normal – something that would be done at a festival or disney world.  The love will shine through!

    I missed it! I sooooooo disagree with PP about engagement shoot being about you and fiance, so I had to post! When there are children involved, I think for many, many people, the engagement, wedding, etc. are very much about the whole family, all the parts coming together as a family.  My son was involved in the whole engagement process (he helped pick out the ring – I didn’t even have a say in that!) he was there for the proposal, has had a say in how he will participate in the ceremony and what symbols he wanted to have – he chose a ring too.  I know everyone has a different view and has to decide for themselves….I just had throw it out there! 🙂 Can’t wait to see how it turned out! Here is ours:
