2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader Emma

Over the years, the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders have been of my favorite squads to photograph at the annual P-R-O Convention in Atlanta.  They usually bring a fairly large contingent of girls and they typically wear their colorful game day uniforms at some point during the convention…and that’s a big plus in my book.  Yes, I like the MVC.

Our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is a Captain of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders and one of the most photogenic cheerleaders in attendance at the convention…introducing Emma.
