You are basically going to act like you are not getting the same device back even though all anticipation is that you will. You never know if something may happen during repair, etc. It's unlikely as heck but that is what I would do.

For photos you should make sure you have backup copies elsewhere. If they are personal you can remove them and replace when you get it back. Basically take off all your personal stuff you don't want anyone else to have.
When you get it back it will have a new battery and be reset. You will enter your account info, then it will update and restore all your data except for certain progress in some games (Angry Birds for me dang it). Your apps will all come back on their own, you don't need to worry about those.
This should not be a big deal. It takes 10 days with a weekend included at most. They will overnight a box for you and then overnight it back.
My advice. You should get it done asap before they decide that the cracks are cosmetic or they run out of spare casebacks.
