Just give her a call and explain your situation. Sometimes moms, aunts, grandparents, etc…like to chip in to these things too (although they’re not supposed to be the official “hosts”).

You have a totally valid reason–just tell her what you can afford and offer that.

Don’t know if you are having a house party for the shower, but perhaps in lieu of “chipping in” you could make some food, a spiked punch or offer to clean up and set up.  The labor of love is worth thousands.  If that doesn’t work out, perhaps you could be the official photographer for the event and just dedicate your time to photographing the event, get copies of the prints made and give it to her in an album.  If you do this and also contribute, I don’t think anyone will resent that.  Good luck!
