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

In doing some biographical research on our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star, I discovered that we have something in common…we both worked for ADP, Automatic Data Processing. She currently works for the payroll company and I used to work in ADP’s Payroll Tax division in San Dimas, CA…small world. I also discovered she was also a Carolina Top Cat for one year and is a current member of the Charlotte Honey Bees. And that’s another thing we have in common…we both love the Honey Bees!

Introducing Charlotte Honey Bee Laken, our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star!

There were many special cheerleaders at P-R-O and we have more to feature, so stay tuned.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Houston Texans Cheerleader Allison

There were a few changes at P-R-O this year that affected my normal routine that I have established over the past few years. Normally, the Sunday lunch period is very fruitful for me in terms of being able to schedule some quality photo time with a few, special cheerleaders. But this year, there were twice as many photographers and a video crew that made it more challenging to do what I’ve done in the past, like having to share my preferred back drop. As a consequence, I didn’t get to shoot as many squads/girls as I have done in the past and that was a bit of a disappointment.

This year, I was able to shoot only a handful of Houston Texans Cheerleaders, a squad that I normally like to feature because Alto Gary pretty much bring the entire squad and they are hot. Fortunately, the three that I did shoot were special. We’ve already seen one, Natsuki, and our next is a second year veteran and a native Houstonian…introducing Houston Texans Cheerleader Allison.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Washington Redskins Cheerleader Annie

The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders only brought four cheerleaders to Atlanta this year. Apparently, they had a big event that weekend and they could only send a handful of girls. Even their director and P-R-O instructor, Stephanie Jojokian had to leave the convention early to pull double duty that weekend. But the four girls that were in attendance, well they were special and I was fortunate to photograph two of them for this series.

Our next honoree is a second year veteran of the First Ladies of Football, introducing our latest 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star, Washington Redskins Cheerleader Annie.

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

I do my research before I arrive at P-R-O every year, checking out the squads and cheerleaders that are likely to be in attendance.  It pays to be prepared and I relish the challenge of identifying fresh, new faces that might be of interest to our readers.  And in doing my research for the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders, I came across their video series on their 2015 auditions called “Cut 27” which featured a hopeful named Haley.  I can see why they selected her to be one of the featured girls and it is the same reason why she is our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.  Not coincidentally, she was the first cheerleader that I photographed at the convention.  So without further ado, introducing newly minted Tennessee Titans Cheerleader Haley.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Gotham City Cheerleader Christie

So as I espied our next P-R-O Convention All Star, I was reminded of a movie that I saw many years ago. It was Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, you know the one with the female terminator. Well our next honoree bears a striking resemblance to the actress who portrayed the Terminatrix, Kristanna Loken. With movie star good looks and a presence on the dance floor that stands out, introducing Gotham City Cheerleader Christie, our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.

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

They say that the clothes make the man and that could be said of cheerleaders as well. One of the things that makes a squad distinct and special are their uniforms and the Minnesota Vikings have some of the best uniforms in the NFL, hands down. I’m big on uniforms as you can probably tell.

Our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star is a fifth year veteran and she is modeling the Baby Helga uniform quite nicely…introducing Minnesota Viking Cheerleader Saral.

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

The Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders got new uniforms this off season and they wore them to P-R-O. They’re sexy and, needless to say, I like the new look. So you can imagine that the Titans were the first squad that I approached to do some of these one on one features. And why not. The girls are gorgeous, the uniforms smoking hot, and they never disappoint.

Our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star is all that and more…introducing Tennessee Titans Cheerleader Brandi.

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

This year, it seemed to me that the Charlotte Honey Bees brought their entire newly minted squad to P-R-O. There must have been over twenty Honey Bees in attendance…that’s certainly more than I can remember being here at one time. But that was a good thing because Brandii McCoy’s squad is absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom. They have to be the hottest dance team in the NBA…no lie. And my only regret this year is that I was unable to photograph all of them for this series.

You could call our next honoree a hoops hottie, but I read that she was also a former NFL cheerleader for the Carolina Panthers…introducing Charlotte Honey Bee Lauren, our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.

No Country For Old Men: The 2015 P-R-O Convention – Part Two

The P-R-O Convention in Atlanta is the premier professional cheerleading convention and attracts the very best professional cheerleaders and choreographers in the nation. Squads from the NFL, NBA, NHL, and minor league baseball gathered in Atlanta for a fun filled weekend of dance, team building and networking.

For James and I, the P-R-O Convention is an amazing event to cover and our highlight of the year.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Houston Texans Cheerleader Natsuki

There seems to be a trend that cheerleaders from abroad, namely Japan and Australia, are coming over to the U.S. to give the NFL a shot. I’ve seen a lot of these girls at the various auditions that I have attended over the years and it seems to me that they are very technical dancers comparatively speaking. So it comes as no surprise that you’ve seen many of these girls on NFL squads recently.

Our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star is one of these talented dancers, introducing second year Houston Texan Cheerleader Natsuki. Natsuki is originally from Tokyo, Japan but now calls Houston her home away from home.

2015 P-R-O Convention All Star: Washington Redskins Cheerleader Rachel K.

One of the teams that I eagerly look forward to each P-R-O Convention is the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.  They always bring some hot looking girls.  They always bring some sexy looking outfits.  And they always bring some great dancers. They were the reason why I originally asked James B., my publisher at UltimateCheerleaders.com, if I could come here and take a shot at covering the event.  In short, the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders bring the heat and that makes for some great photos.

And our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star is the embodiment of a Washington Redskins Cheerleader.  So without further ado, introducing Rachel K., our next 2015 P-R-O Convention All Star.
