Search Warrant to take Pictures of Location/Home/Etc Login/Join

LEO takes report of sexual abuse of a child at a known location, obtains arrest warrant for suspect and search warrant for property and things. No pictures are taken of the crime scene at the execution of the warrants.

LEO now wants to go back and take pictures. No consent to search from the homeowners. CCP 18 says warrant may issue for property or things. Any insight as to whether photos of the inside of this residence constitute "things" or other articulable purposes consistent with the code and sufficient for a warrant to issue?

Thanks for your time and consideration!
