This week, I got to shoot Christina and Joe's engagement session. When Christina and I were on the phone before the session, she asked if someone else could come along. Normally, I prefer when it's just the couple alone because someone else watching can sometimes make things uncomfortable, but then Christina mentioned that the other person that would be there wasn't actually a person at all, he was their dog, Rocco!

I probably should have stuck to my original guns about nobody else coming though, because Rocco really was more like a third person at the shoot. Come to think of it, maybe I should have un-invited Christina and Joe to Rocco's shoot!

He is pretty cute though, huh?

Rocco is definitely their baby, the apple of their eyes:

Look what a smart boy he is! (still talking about Rocco)

They do make an adorable little family:

Tell me he's not a firstborn child all the way:

Joe and his love:

Luckly, Joe's sister also came along to hang with Rocco while we shot a few with the couple alone. They were more affectionate without the kid around:

We had to go through a lot to get into this spot, but the light was so gorgeous!

I promised it would be worth the treck, and I still think I was right:

I just adore Joe and Christina! They are so friendly and likable, and I love that they are knowledgeable about all things delicious. I can't wait for their wedding which will be coordinated by the ever fabulous Brooke of Details Details!
