Re: What do I need to do my own newborn/baby photos?

I saw this: http://fjwestcott.com/product/rectangular-pocketbox-flash-softbox but I'm not sure how well that can attach to the FL300R which is completely flat on the front.

It's probably not big enough to deliver soft, diffuse light. Something like that is best for situations that require portability, but that doesn't sound like your situation. Umbrellas are cheap. You should probably get an umbrella, something to mount it on the tripod or a light stand, and use the camera hand-held.

That's for after the baby is born. In the delivery room, well... I'll stay out of that discussion.
