Over the course of President Barack Obama’s two terms as President of the United States, we were treated to some incredibly touching and intimate photos of the First Family. From state events to daily outings, walks, and vacations, the public got a glimpse into the life of the 44th President of the United States that had rarely been seen in previous administrations. Of course, we have our favorite photos amongst the extensive catalog of images that chronicled the Obamas’ time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But we have to say, the images that always stand out most to us of former President Obama include his daughters Malia and Sasha Obama.
From 2008 to 2016, Sasha and Malia grew from elementary school kids to college-bound teenagers right before our eyes, and the many images that were captured during Obama’s two terms in office featured a side of the president that was so devoted to his role as a father. Whether he was pardoning a turkey right before Thanksgiving Day, or taking a casual stroll with his girls, Obama had some tender moments with his daughters that we all got to vicariously live through over the course of eight years.
Now, since we’re celebrating an important Obama birthday today, we figured one of the best ways to celebrate is to look back at a collection of these adorable #girldad family photos. Read on to see our favorite photos of Barack Obama with his beautiful daughters Malia and Sasha — starting with this adorable birthday tribute for Sasha’s 21st.
Happy birthday, Sasha! I have loved watching you grow into the intelligent, beautiful, and caring young woman you've become. And no matter how old you get—you'll always be my baby girl. Look at those cheeks! pic.twitter.com/Ai12grJml8
