My personal feelings about photography have changed. Drastically.
I used to want only photos of my own children, clean, cute, and facing the camera. Now I think that is vanilla. Pictures like that mark the end of a scene... the one in which I struggled to comb and coax, lick stray strands into place, and hush rebellion into submission. Ta-da. Click.
Not only that, I was incredibly ego centric. I wanted the snapshots to tell about my progeny, and how they reflected well on me.
