Does sponsor need to file a G-325A & 2 Passport Pics as part of AOS application if not submitting an I-130?

I am sponsoring my non-US citizen wife and her daughter (my stepdaughter). We are in the process of completing the I-864 and I-485s.

As directed, my wife and stepdaughter will each be submitting two passport pics. My wife will also be including a G-325A for herself. Her daughter won't need a G-325A because she is under 14 years of age.

The question is, do I as the sponsor have to submit a G-325A and two passport pics for myself? I believe this is only necessary if we are submitting I-130s. We won't be doing that however, because my wife and stepdaughter entered the country on K1 and K2 visas respectively, and I married my wife within the 90 day window.

I'd appreciate it if someone could set me straight on this. Thanks in advance for your help.

No. The USC petitioner/sponsor only supplies the I-864. There is no requirement for a G-325A or passport photos. That is the requirement of the I-485 for the intending immigrant.
