Barack Obama may be President of the United States, but that hasn’t stopped him from having fun.
These photos by Pete Souza, chief official White House photographer, showcase a side of Barack Obama that we’re all too familiar with. Despite that, these candid shots put a smile on our face.
Having followed Obama since 2004, Souza has captured as many as 2 million photos of the President. Apart from stately, official photos, he has also documented many of Obama’s candid moments.
Despite the fact that Obama is known for his media-friendly personality, having graced talk shows and even doing a Between Two Ferns comedy bit with Zach Galifianakis, these candid shots that capture the US President’s affable character continue to captivate.
From carrying a toddler in the Oval Office, to enjoying a pizza, and engaging in a “fight” with a kid in a Spiderman costume, these photos show why he’ll be missed when he steps down this November.
