This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

1 Answer

If you take out the extra words before "me" in your sentences, you get

The photo shows me at the party compared to The photo shows I at the party.
This is I at the swimming pool compared to This is me at the swimming pool.

Me is correct in both cases, so it's also correct when you add the other words back:

The photo shows my kids and me at the party.
This is Jean and me at the swimming pool.
