As you already found out, small sensors give you the depth of focus you require.

The new small-sensor cameras have BSI-CMOS sensors and LED flashes in them, which all helps with better sensitivity, less noise and more reach.

Google brings up lots of cheap and expensive ring flashes, most seem to need a hot shoe - which excludes a lot of small sensor cameras.

Your examples with the internal flash in use suggest that you might have minimised some shadows by turning the camera 180 degrees.

Basically, you are doing already what is possible with the constraints you must work with.
