Washington - Children's photographer Anne Geedes easily beat out the competition to be selected to do the official portrait of President Barrack Huesien Obama. The portrait, which hangs in all government offices, is a much coveted and sought after honor, and while the choice of Ms. Geedes was surprising, it won't be the first time she has taken an official Photograph.
In 1974 she was selected to do the official portrait of then vice president Spiro Agnew. Mr. Agnew resigned before it was completed. It was Michelle Obama who first suggested that Ms.Geedes be considered, after seeing her work in a coffee table book which was inexplicatedly left behind by former first lady Laura Bush when the Bushes vacated the White House earlier this year.
