I’ve never had kids, but two sets of twins…WOW!  I would honestly tell her you understand and request your deposit back…and even though her breaks would be very necessary, would you want to miss out on an important shot because she was on a much needed break?

How far out in advance did you book her?  I would see what other photographers are available first – do some research.  Can you find someone comparable and in your price range?  If yes, then book someone else.  It’s going to be less stressful on you and on the female photographer.  At least she let you know now that she will need these breaks and assistance.  And I UNDERSTAND she is a working mother and all (which is great and she deserves mad props), but this is someone’s wedding photography that she was hired to do – it’s a professionalism things.

I get the impression she is looking for a way out but wants you to initiate it, so she doesn’t look unprofessional cancelling a booking.

I would want to know a few things before I outright cancelled:

-is she bringing a second shooter to get the pics that are needed when she is on a break? Has she worked with this person before? Does she recommend their work?

-does she have a  recommendation of another photographer who IS AVAILABLE on your date as many may already be booked?

– I would ignore the issue of childcare for her kids. Like any other working woman, this is her concern, not yours.

-I would send her my timeline to see what her feedback is.
