I'm not sure I've seen the same one twice, but I have done layouts where my son was in the same position but with different expressions, and I loved them both so much I couldn't choose, so used them both.

I've used the same photo twice on the same page. I just like the repetition.

I've done it; cropped a little differently for focus.

It's just a design effect. Repetition is a basic element in all types of design and draws your eye to the photos. It also adds more texture and layers. And oftentimes it just looks better than one single photo on a huge 12x12 page. I tend to use it when it's a self-shot and a more artsy page.

I haven't done the exact same photo, but I've included the same one printed in color as well as black and white. I just liked the effect, and I wanted to use more space than just one of the photos would occupy.
