Anyone here done newborn portrait photography?

Hey everybody, I recently became an uncle to two nieces and I wanted to try and take some professional level photos.  I feel like I know enough about photography to be able to get some quality images .  My main question is about lighting.

I was just planning on setting up next to a window and diffuse the natural light with the curtains, and shoot with a wide open aperture.  I mainly shoot video so I could setup multiple lights if need be, but I've never done this so I just figured I'd look for advice.  I don't have a flash though.

Any input would be great, thanks.
