Wait, have you been paid yet for those three projects? If not, then obviously, you should even consider giving her a dime. If you did get paid, offer her 10%; which is a generally fair amount. If that's only $10 per project, so be it. Tell her to find you better paying projects. You should only pay commission to the agent, not any upfront fees. Get your own head shots too, agents tend to work with photographers and have been known to inflate the price.

That's cheap. Most agents take a 20% commission off everything they book you on

Sounds like the "agent" is getting more serious about her business. Contracts protect both parties so it seems like you should READ and sign the contract. And 100 bucks a year is well more than reasonable. It's less than 9 dollars a month. If you think you can find one for cheaper then good luck. And what makes you think an agent does or should work for free? That's their job and they should be paid.
