There’s a soccer game going on right now that has much of the world’s attention. But in the world of the San Francisco 49ers, a big photo shoot is taking place today, the 2010 Gold Rush Cheerleaders presented by Coors Light are taking their team shot.
A lot goes into a team photo shoot, which we’ll document in the coming days on 49ers.com. But first, enjoy this photo blog from today’s event. We’ll update it throughout the afternoon with updates from the shoot, and we’ll catch up with some of the veterans and rookies on the 2010 squad.

The Gold Rush began the shoot in separate lines. All 32 girls took turns taking row shots, but that was the start of their day.Placing all 32 girls perfectly in line requires a lot of attention to detail. If you thought alignment was important in football, it’s even more so in photography.

Rookie Erica K. has received advice prior to the shoot from older sister Alexis. And although the shoot takes time, it’s all worth it.
“It’s a lot of fun, and it’s so much different than the individual photo shoot,” Erika said. “As a team it takes a lot more time and every girl has to be situated the right way. But it’ fun. We keep each other company and every one is entertained.”

And after all the hard work, seeing the final product is the best part according to Amber.
“They certainly are long days, getting prepared for them and then doing the actual shoot, but when they finally get the shot it’s all worth it.”
