Hugger-in-Chief

****

Behind the Lens: Hugger-in-Chief

Pete Souza: President Obama may be the Commander-in-chief. But clearly his wife – First Lady Michelle Obama – is the hugger-in-chief.

My staff and I have been photographing her since Inauguration Day, and as the following photographs clearly show, she’s been hugging people nonstop since Day 1. Whether it’s a school child, a family member in peril, a surprised tourist, or even a famous person, the First Lady greets them with a hug.

Although I mostly photograph the President, I’m occasionally near the First Lady when she’s greeting people with a hug. I love to watch the reaction of people on the receiving end of her hugs. There are usually lots of smiles and sometimes tears of joy.
