I don't see anything wrong with it.. more pictures never can have too many pictures. The only.thing I would ne particular about is who the photographer was.

Yes, I would. Especially if she knew I already had an appointment. Of course my MIL isn't allowed anywhere near DD unattended or for any particularly long stretch of time.

No, but if she made me pay for them I would be. But I also don't get professional photos. It is a hobby of mine and love to do them myself. So if she wants to spend the money and do that. She sure can have time with her granddaughter and enjoy.

I would even if that was my mom. Babies milestones are to be celebrated first by the parents unless parents include grandparents, godparents, uncles & aunts. I would take my baby to the appointment you already have and keep them as the official baby's 1st year pic. Then I would tell her that she is welcome to keep those for her own enjoyment as obviously she spent money on it but other than displaying them around her house she isn't allow to show or post them any other way!

I would be very angry.  It is an important set of pictures and that is very very out of place.

Yes, but only because my MIL tries to ACT like their mother when we're around, by trying to get DD1 refer to her as "mami", and that would be yet another way of her trying to disrespect us as parents.

Otherwise, meh.

As long as she paid I wouldn't care. I would do both appointments and get twice as many photos
