2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte Honey Bee Helen Ann

The most impressive squad at P-R-O was the Charlotte Honey Bees. They were all very attractive and they were all interesting subjects to shoot, whether it was for their dance ability, their good looks, or that part of their personality that can be captured in a still image. Each and every one of them was a pleasure to shoot and as I have said before, my only regret was that I didn’t get to shoot all of them. They were that impressive.

Our next honoree is one of those amazing Charlotte Honey Bees…introducing Helen Ann, our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.

New York Lizards Dancers

The New York Lizards Dancers under the direction of Paul Sanders, perform at the home games of the Major League Lacrosse New York Lizards. I had the pleasure of visiting with the dancers at their final home game of the season back on July 9th. Unfortunately a thunderstorm rolled in at half time necessitating a suspension of the game so the squad was only around the for first half. Enjoy the photos!

Former Ladies of Ontario Fury Dancer Michelle C. Selected For The Laker Girls

Congratulations to former Ladies of Ontario Fury Dancer Michelle C. for being selected to the 2015 – 2016 Laker Girls.

Fury13R1v040

For the past several years, I have been fortunate to photograph this lovely dancer, first as a Anaheim Bolts Dance Team Member and for the past two years as a member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury Dance Team. I first saw her at tryouts for the Anaheim Bolts Dance Team and I knew she would be special. More recently, Michelle has been delighting fans while cheering on the Ontario Fury at the Citizens Business Bank Arena.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader Kayla

I was impressed with our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star…she stood out and that is one of the most important qualities of that you can have as a cheerleader. Every one of the girls at P-R-O is beautiful…they’re professional cheerleaders and I have never seen an unattractive one. They’re all proficient dancers….some better than others, all worthy of their uniform. But some girls stand out from the others. They have a special quality and our next honoree caught my attention in a sea of beautiful and talented dancers…introducing Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader Kayla, a 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Tennessee Titans Cheerleader Kimberly

If my memory serves correctly, I first saw our next honoree at this convention six years earlier, when she was a member of the Washington Wizard Girls. The year was 2010 and it was my first year covering this wonderful event. Back then, I had not yet come up with the idea of doing these features. Fast forward to 2015 and as the saying goes, “what is old, is new again”. Introducing our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star, Tennessee Titans Cheerleader Kimberly.
