My take. Use alien bee(s), umbrellas and grey background. Shoot F 5.6 or 8 and use custom WB so the overheads are out of the equation. keep subjects far enough away from BG so shadow(s) fall out of pic. Use a tripod if you want. I hate them. There are many ways to do this and the only correct way is what you are comfortable with and what pleases the client

I'm curious, why do you hate tripods?  Thinking in this case it would be very useful for consistancy. Suppose for more creative portrait  work it could be limiting.
