Behind the scenes with the Obamas: Candid snapshots of a presidential family life


The last few months have been intense and difficult for US President Barack Obama.

Although his foreign policies have been a success - he lead the search for Osama Bin Laden and followed closely the toppling of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi - he's also faced criticism for the current global financial situation.

This week, The White House have released various behind-the-scenes pictures of Barack that show his less known side.

In the candid photos taken by the White House photographer we can see a more relaxed and natural Barack and Michelle Obama playing basketball, meeting supporters and gardening.
