I'm just saying it might have been cooler if they did a scene like in Minority Report where he remembers his dead son by watching a 3D hologram. The whole "I'm looking at a torn up picture so I'm hurting emotionally" thing is just a tired concept, that's all.
People with money have photos... they goto Wallgreens, KMart etc.. walk up top a machine put their SD card into an e-reader , & print off a few dozen photos.
The rest of these people, are typically young kids who don't have extra disposable income to print their photos up, & instead harbor all their photos on their phones... mostly (like you suggested) because they don't own a real camera, etc. If you have thousands of dumb pics on your phone, chances are you are emotionally attached to them, but they are not worth printing up. Perhaps thats why you feel that children don't have photos anymore.
Plus, younger kids use social media to expand their ego... thus they have tons of photos for others to view them. And it is cheaper... kids love cheap things, because it bears no responsibility on their parents.
