    Is there any "must have" shots i need to get? I figure for lighting i will treat it as a wedding and bounce my SB800 from on camera. I'll be at the house, church, and then restaurant after for a few minutes for candids.
    Any tips would help a lot!

    Lighting should be the same as a wedding in a church, if you've ever done one. Usually there's a corner of the church where they do the baptisms. It can be pretty tight depending on how many people there are, so plan accordingly. Don't miss the shot when they pour the water over the baby's head.

    If its in a catholic church, crank up the ISO and have a nice wide open aperture!
