There is no standard, but the "best" results are eyelevel based on the family or most people that would be looking at it. If your family has members between 4'8" and 5'6", the photographs in the home would be lower than for a family ranging from 5'9" to 6'6". Neither would be wrong, it is what would be best for each household.
