The Obama Family Portrait

One of the perks of being president is having Annie Leibovitz take your family picture. On Friday morning the White House released the first official portrait of the first family, shot at the beginning of September, on its Flickr photostream. In the photo, a relaxed-looking Barack sits as daughter Sasha, 8, puts her arm around his shoulders while nearby, Malia, 11, embraces her seated mother while perched on the chair's arm.
