The on thing she makes sure to get in every picture is the house. I believe she wants the novelty of saying, "This is where I came from," when she shows them off.

She makes sure the house she was raised in is in the picture. As she fights with herself over her desire to be/not be a part of her raising/heritage, the house certainly represents where she has come from. It could show both where she has been and what she is trying to escape from.
