#ObamaAndKids — My Contributions

Photos of President Obama with kids (many taken by the great White House chief photographer, Pete Souza) range from heart-warming to just plain wonderful. So, like so many others, I love the #ObamaAndKids hashtag that’s trending now. It led me to go back through my own photos of Obama, looking for these ones.

Presidential candidate Barack Obama meets a little girl, following a speech in Farmington Hills, Michigan, Sept. 8, 2008. In his connection with her, we can see why there are so many wonderful #ObamaAndKids photos: he wholeheartedly loves children, and they can tell. (Meanwhile the Secret Service agent over his shoulder is doing his job, making sure even she is no kind of threat.)
