Having $150 worth of product photographed isn't bad... thats actually going to give you great photos of alot of product... the fact that she's allowing only an hour... thats awful! I probably spend 3-10 hours on each boutique that sends me items, unless its one item at a time... And newborn pictures are if-y... newborns can get fussy, restless, hungry... my newborn shoots run 2-3 hours in most cases... Unless she puts the baby in one spot sleeping and snaps away which gives little difference in the photos...
I'm not sure what the arrangement is... your friend getting free newborn pics as in prints included or just the pics taken and she has to also buy the prints??? I would definitely request a cd and release for the photos for sure!
The boutiques I model items for also get several models, usually even when its only one item... I feel like you're getting ripped off.
