Not only is Michelle Obama a wife, mother, lawyer and the first lady of the United States, she is the hugger-in-chief, according to Peter Souza, the White House photographer.

“My staff and I have been photographing her since Inauguration Day and as the following photographs clearly show, she’s been hugging people nonstop since Day 1,” he writes in a blog post at the White House. “Whether it’s a school child, a family member in peril, a surprised tourist, or even a famous person, the First Lady greets them with a hug.”

For her part, the first lady says she’s always been a hugger and it’s her first inclination when she meets someone.

“Hugging is how I connect to people–how I show warmth and make folks feel at home.”
