2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte Honey Bee Farin

I had a wonderful time in Atlanta covering the 2019 P-R-O Convention.  This is my biggest event to cover and yields weeks worth of content for our readers.  And I am fortunate to meet so many beautiful and talented dancers and to be able to introduce them to our readers.

However, all good things come to an end…at least for this year…and we have reached the end of our coverage with our final 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.  I think it is appropriate that we end with one of my favorite squads to cover, the Charlotte Honey Bees.  They have the most amazing dancers and they are always so accommodating in posing for these features.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to one of those special Charlotte Honey Bees…Farin, our final 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

Well, that’s all folks!  We have come to the end of our coverage of the 2019 P-R-O Convention.  It was another great convention and my thanks to all those amazing cheerleaders and dancers who were in attendance.  I can’t wait to see what is in store for next year and I hope to feature some more amazing dancers for our readers.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Carolina Panthers TopCats Cheerleader Kayla

One of the most pleasant surprises of this year’s P-R-O Convention was appearance of the Carolina Panthers TopCats.  They sent five representatives to this year’s event and they were a breath of fresh air.  Resplendent in their game day uniforms, the TopCats left a lasting impression and I made it priority to photograph as many of them as I could for this series. 

So without further ado, introducing our newest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star, Carolina Panthers TopCats cheerleader Kayla.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Cincinnati Ben-Gals Cheerleader Abby

We have another amazing dancer to showcase for you and she was one of a number of dancers who left a lasting impression.  That shouldn’t be surprising since most professional cheerleaders and dancers that are selected for their teams do so because they shine in their own special way.  At least that is what I have seen at auditions.  Anyways, I digress.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte CheckMate Holly

It seems to me that the Charlotte CheckMates are, in some sense, a feeder program to the Charlotte Honey Bees.  I have noticed over the years that several CheckMates ultimately end up on the Charlote Honey Bees and that shouldn’t be surprising since they are both coached by Brandii McCoy.  And let me say that I am a big fan of what she has done with both squads.  The CheckMates and Honey Bees are among my favorite squads to photograph at P-R-O…for obvious reason.

Our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is a member of the Charlotte CheckMates and another one of those “Carolina girls” that stood out at the convention…introducing Charlotte CheckMate Holly, our newest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

As we approach the conclusion of our coverage from the 2019 P-R-O Convention, we still have a few more amazing cheerleaders and dancers to feature.  I think I photographed near 30 women for this series and we continue our parade of All Stars with a dancer we featured last year.  Introducing Charlotte Honey Bee Amber, our newest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte Honey Bee Kendall

Our coverage of the 2019 P-R-O Convention in Atlanta is winding down, but we still have a handful of cheerleaders and dancers to feature.  Our next honoree is a very talented dancer who often helps teach the dances at P-R-O that are choreographed by her coach and director, Brandii McCoy of the Charlotte Hornets.  I recognize that this takes a lot of skill and talent to be so honored with that responsibility and I wanted to feature her in our All Star posts.

So without further ado, introducing Charlotte Honey Bee Kendall, our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader Kelsey B.

The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders are always in attendance at P-R-O…and why not…they’re local to the event, so its easy for them to attend.  And as such, its easy for them to take off once the days events are over.  That is why it has been difficult for me over the years to photograph them for these features.  But this year, I made it a priority to snag a couple of them before they all scattered off into the night.

So without further ado, introducing Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader Kelsey B., our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte CheckMates Dancer Lena

This year, I was able to shoot a couple of squads that I did not have the opportunity to do so in the past.  And one of those squads was the Charlotte CheckMates, the dance team of the AHL Charlotte Checkers.  Our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is one of those CheckMates…introducing Lena.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Carolina TopCat Cheerleader Annalise

As we begin winding down our coverage of the 2019 P-R-O Convention, we would like to mention that there were over 250 beautiful and talented cheerleaders and dancers in Atlanta.  We would have like to share some quality time with more of them, but time would not allow us to do so.

However, we did focus our attention some new teams and new faces.  One of the new teams was the Carolina TopCats and they left a lasting impression.  Though they only brought five girls to P-R-O, they were special and I was able to photograph four of them.

Our latest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is the third member of the TopCats that I photographed for this feature.  So without further ado, let me introduce you to TopCat Annalise.

This year’s P-R-O Convention was amazing and there were many wonderful cheerleaders and dancers in attendance.  So many that I was only able to feature a fraction of those in attendance for these featurettes, but time was extremely limited and I did the best that I could for our readers.

So without further ado, introducing our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star, Charlotte Honey Bee Paulina.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Washington Redskins Cheerleader Jaclyn

One of my favorite squads to photograph at P-R-O is the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.  They always bring a nice squad of cheerleaders and they wear some of the most alluring uniforms at the event.  This makes for an interesting photograph because they always present their girls at their best.

Our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is a fifth year veteran of the First Ladies of Football…introducing Washington Redskins Cheerleader Jaclyn.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Cincinnati Ben-Gals Cheerleader Samantha

I enjoy photographing the Cincinnati Ben-Gals.  They are a rare treat for me to shoot because I never get to see them at a game since I live over 2,000 miles away in Los Angeles.   So whenever I get a chance to photograph them in person, I try to take advantage of this rare gift.

Our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is one of those Cincinnati Ben-Gals who made the trek to Atlanta…introducing Samantha.
