“One of the reasons we did this picture is because we get so many letters from kids, mostly, who want to hear about the garden, they want to see it, and they also want to see Bo. Bo is really the most popular,” the First Lady said after the portrait was released.

This is the second White House portrait that she has taken since her husband entered office. The first, a stunning self-portrait taken in the Blue Room of the White House, showed the first lady standing in a suit.
