JFK in formal white tie and tails and the First Lady host a state dinner for Her Royal Highness Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxemborg, April 30, 1963. This photograph is notable in that JFK was rarely seen in public touching Jackie and his natural wavy hair (there were rumors that he had his hair straightened) can be seen.

1958: No new mother likes to wake her sleeping baby. So when Life photographer Ed Clark asked Senator John F. Kennedy if he could get a shot with him and his four-month-old daughter, Caroline, who was sleeping upstairs while the three lunched at the family’s Georgetown home, it was no surprise that Jacqueline Kennedy said, “No.” Regardless, Jack bounded upstairs and Clark followed. In doing so, Clark, known for his gentlemanly manner, which won him the trust of Washington and Hollywood stars alike, captured one of the most memorably intimate images of the future president as a family man.
