My sister was wondering if kiddie porn is illegal for everyone to own, including people who are underage. So, if a twelve year old had a collection of pictures or videos that featured other twelve year olds, what would that mean?

Yes, it is always illegal for anyone to possess pornographic images of underage people. And if your sister actually has a collection of naked child pictures, whoever took them could very well be prosecuted as well.

btw, if you are under 18 in the US and have taken erotic photos of yourself to give to your partner or post online on dating websites, YOU can be prosecuted for distributing kiddie porn of yourself.
