Tamara Lichtenstein's female portraits evoke a distinctly free feeling that speaks of a 'living your life to the fullest' attitude. In this series, the models have a very bohemian portrayal that is shown in a road trip style of photographs.

The Houston, Texas-based photographer does an incredible job highlighting femininity and organizing the composition of her pictures. Each shot captures more than just the subject, it conveys a message that speaks to the overall theme of the images. It can be very tricky to transcend the classic association of female portraits, but Lichtenstein's style and technical savvy set her images apart from the norm. It's clear that she is able to get the best out of the models she uses because of how each photograph is structured.
