All your pictures and documents should be fine. The only thing you should loose :-

any programs you have installed since that restore

any hardware drivers you have installed since that restore.

The secret with System restore is to make sure that you Create a Restore Point at regular intervals (fairly frequently and especially before you install new drivers or applications).
System restore will do exactly as it says - Restore the System to what it was on the date to which you are restoring. Anything you have altered since that chosen date will not be included in the Restore.

Just don't rely solely on system restore to get you out of trouble; be sure to have a good backup routine in place too.

If you do a System Restore to an earlier point you will NOT lose programs etc installed after that point, but will undo all recorded changes made to the registry and monitored files caused by the installation(s). See:
