Self Portrait Method Experience™ Photography

Remove the sting of a bad photo with the self portrait method experience Lisa haukom

Your role in front of the camera has been grossly misrepresented through unrealistic, social commercial and beauty standards.


I’m here to help you take the pressure off. 


Because we find it so hard to conform to an ideal. We push back by trying assert control over our image. This takes the form of looking for certain ways to “fix “ourselves, filtering ourselves and and ting ourselves into “flattering “shapes to create something pleasing for the camera. To put a checkmark in the ideal box.


Anyone can teach you how of looking good in photos. You can Google how to find your best angles, how to find the best light and how to pose like a boss babe if that’s what you really want. 


But at the end of the day, if that’s the path you choose you will still find yourself at the starting point. Wondering what you need to do next to fix yourself, to like your photos more and to like yourself more. 


80% of what we do inside the no more bad photos course and in front of the camera is mindset. Less than 20% is the and my friend all the how in the world will not help you to push “post at the end of the day.

At a time when we're looking for a more honest approach to everything from relationships with ourselves and others, to lifestyle, wellness, and our brands, I didn't need another path to being myself, I needed being myself to be the path. 

I'm Lisa Haukom, a photographer, creative, and out-of the box-thinker.  I created the Self Portrait Method for myself in 2019 when I keep running into versions of myself I'd outgrown.


How many times has someone offered you that wonderfully insightful piece of advice to 'just be yourself'? Like it hadn't crossed your mind already? 

And yet, this is hard to do!

But when you do figure it out (and you will!)  it's a liberating way to go through life. You no longer have a patchwork identity. You're not a composite of all your influences. You're not somebody's partner, or parent, or anybody's anything. You're yourself.

The Self Portrait Experience is the operating manual you should have been born with.  

Love & moxie, xoxo Lisa
