 Load your camera with tungsten film. Don't worry about diffuse, soft 
light but simply feather  two 3400K  photo floods at 45 degrees to her 
prints.  Make sure they are equidistant from prints and take a reading 
without  blocking any light. The entire situation should be straight and 
level. Camera, lights and pictures on wall.  A micro Nikkor is what I 
always used for copy work but not a necessity.


p.s. An easier way might be to ask the designer for a CD file of her 
work and take it to Walgreens and print it out :-)
