newborn photo sessions

at Naistenklinikka & Espoon Sairaala or at my Espoo studio.

  • Hospital newborn photo sessions are in the mommy/baby hospital rooms in Espoon Sairaala or Naistenklinikka. (Also in the hotel rooms with Naistenklinikka.)

    If you have a shared room the photo session takes place during the visiting hour but if you have a family room or hotel room the photo session can take place whenever is most convenient. 

    The hospital session lasts 30-60 minutes. It includes newborn portraits as well as family portraits if desired.

  • Studio newborn photo sessions are in Northern Espoo, located near Jorvi hospital.

    The studio session is 1 - 1,5 hours long and it includes family portraits and newborn portraits.

  • Info for both sessions:

    Once the photos are edited they will be uploaded to your own private gallery and you will receive an e-mail with a link and password inviting you to view your photos.

    The gallery will have color and black & white photos. There are usually 100-250 photos to choose from. 

    Digital pictures will be available to purchase and download straight from the gallery to your computer.

    You will have 1 month to pick and purchase your favorite photos before your gallery is taken down.

  • Pricing Info

    I charge my clients based on how many photos they would like to purchase from their gallery.

    See pricing sheet below.

¨We can warmly recommend Haapanen Photography's newborn sessions in Jorvi Hospital. Rachel was very flexible in finding a suitable time for the photoshoot, she was immediately able to create a warm and friendly atmosphere and - last but not least - was able to take amazing photos of our baby and deliver them to us sooner than we got home from the hospital! Great service that makes people happy!¨


¨Me and my three-week old baby girl had the greatest newborn photoshoot with Rachel! Couldn't be happier with the photos - it's amazing how she was able to capture such beautiful moments so naturally. The photos were also delivered to us within 2 days, which was amazing since I wouldn't have been able to wait for longer to see them!!¨




Hello, I’m Rachel

I was born and raised in Hawaii and have called Finland home for the last 10 years. I’m married to an amazing Finnish man and am a mommy to the sweetest little boy. I’ve always loved photography. When I became a mom I had the desire to photograph babies and families because I knew how important my own baby’s photos were to me! Hopefully in the near future I will be photographing you and your family! So nice to meet you!
