```Matt,
If you know f(a)=f0 and g(a)=g0 and suppose
f'(t)=F(t), and g'(t)=G(t). Then use NDSolve and plot the solution
using ParametricPlot, i.e.

sol=NDSolve[{f'[t]==F[t],g'[t]==G[t],f[a]==f0,g[a]==g0},{f,g},{t,a,b}]
ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{f[t],g[t]}/.sol],{t,a,b}]

You can readily extend this to plot the family of parametric curves
for  a specified range of f0, and g0.

Cheers,

Brian
