What I do not understand is why is there a photograph of his reaction in the first place? Is someone told we are about to deliver bad news to the president you may want to get a shot of this? Makes no sense if his security advisor is telling him about something so terrible that there is someone in the room to take a photo to begin with.

It makes no sense because you don't know that meetings are automatically photographed for the record. The photographer. Pete Souza, who was also President Reagan's photograher, is with him at all times. You can follow him on Twitter and ask him for yourself.
