Rolling stone photographer shoots Obama family portraits

Famed shutterbug Annie Leibovitz, whose work has graced countless covers of music and culture magazines like Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone, was tasked with taking the first family portrait of the First Family since Barack Obama claimed the U.S. presidency 10 months ago.
The 60 year-old photographer is no stranger to politics, as the Daily Mail claims that her portfolio includes pictures of former Vice-President Al Gore, Queen Elizabeth., and Obama himself - including a campaign trail spread in Vanity Fair and a 2004 family portrait replete with the caption: Is this the face of a future president."
Minor controversy has arisen over the omission of beloved family member Bo, the Portugese water dog who a White House spokeswoman assures Americans was busy.
"Bo didn''t make the cut," she laughs in a statement to the press corp. "He was upstairs at home."
Leibovitz''s has crafted iconic images over the past several decades including a pregnant and nude Demi Moore and the final day of Beatle John Lennon with his wife Yoko Ono.
