The White House Flickr has blessed us with a behind the scenes look at the First Family during the month of July.
These candid shots won’t be found on the front page of the New York Times; instead they’re for the fans of the White House.
Some of the most intimate moments captured on camera are featured in this collection of photos, from Michelle Obama getting into a tug of war with London Olympians, to President Barack Obama chopping it up with LeBron James during a USA basketball exhibition.
The White House staff photographers who circle the President and First Lady on every occasion take all photos.
Take a look at some behind the scenes snapshots in the above gallery.
