    Default First look: Official Obama family portrait



    Check out the Obama family’s official White House portrait!
    The portrait featuring President Obama and his family was released Friday (October 23) and was shot by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz on September 1.
    Annie has shot photos of the family since 2004, when Barack was running for the Senate, and continued to document his journey on the 2008 campaign trail.
    As for where Bo, the family dog, is, a White House spokeswoman laughed and told Reuters, “Bo didn’t make the cut. He was upstairs at home.”

    I'm sure the sleeve-mafia will be happy that Michelle is covering her arms.

    It's a nice portrait but I would have asked the younger daughter to wear a different colour to that white dress. It overpowers and unbalances the composition.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Are there other examples of other president's official family portraits?
    It's a cute picture, just looks very casual.

    Not nearly as execrable as Bush on his best day.

    I kind of like that it is a casual photo of them. I'm sure that was their choice and I guess they didn't want to be all stiff and proper.

    Someone needs to dig up the Bush first family photo so we can compare and then laugh.

    Since it was done by Liebowitz I am really surprised they aren't all naked draped in a white sheet with a fan blowing their hair.
