A few would be just fine. In terms of the evidence weight pictures are somewhat light. They want to see many other things and pictures usually are considered but won't be a huge help.

What else you are including in your packet?

I think I sent about 6-7 photos. I stayed away from wedding/honeymoon photos because of getting the 2-year card already, so I focused on photos that included me, my wife and other family members of mine on different occassions throughout the last 2 years.

We sent in a total of 18 pictures (2 on each page... we copied and pasted our photos from the computer), all taken after the 2 year green card was approved. We sent pictures with family, friends and on holiday. I included a one line caption for each photo with date, place and a brief description. It was probably overkill, but I just wanted to cover all our bases.

i don't think we have any pictures that we haven't already sent in with AOS & K1. it seems ridiculous to take pictures now, right before we send in our ROC. we aren't picture people and we've been working the last two years pretty much nonstop. the family vacation we took last year we managed to take a ton of pictures, but none of ourselves..

Vacation to hospital (me cardiac issues) with her taking care of me.

Vacation to hospital (her intestinal issues) with me taking care of her.

Vacation to mother in laws house.

Home photos (when we were there)

Pictures of the courtroom with stepdaughter for adoption.

Heck, now I know where all the time went.
