Car Poses For Women

1. The Snack(s) in the Trunk

You’re a snack, you’re a meal, you’re a whole bag of groceries! And where do we put those?? In the trunk!

Location in car: trunk

Props: optional


  • Get rid of any clutter in your trunk so you can be the focus of the photo
  • Put one or both feet up, to draw more attention to your shoes.

  • Draw attention to your prop with your hands, or pretend to fix your outfit if you want to highlight it

3. Backseat Baddie

The backseat baddie car pose stands out because most car poses are taken in the front seat.

This is an easy photo to take in a taxi or if you’re just waiting for someone in the car.

Location in car: backseat

Props: optional


  • The backseat can be dark compared to the front seat which gets lots of light from the windscreen, so tilt your face towards the window to get better lighting.

Props: optional


  • Be sure to clean your visor mirror for a nice clear pic

5. Stepping Out

‘Stepping out’ is a great car pose for women. It’s visually interesting because you get to bring attention to your hair, face, outfit, shoes, and car all at the same time.

All you do is open the door, swing your legs outside and say cheese.

Location in car: front or backseat

Props: optional


  • Placing your camera above or below eye level makes your photo even more interesting to look at.

6. Side Chique

We’ve called this one the ‘side chique’ because it really is a chique pose. It’s a great opportunity to draw attention to pretty earrings, fancy sunglasses, or your amazing makeup skills.

8. Pump It Up

This isn’t exactly a pose — it’s more about the location.

Use your creativity to come up with some great ideas.

Location: In or outside your car at the gas station

Props: snacks, cellphone, or gas pump/ bowser


  • You probably won’t be able to take this photo on your own, so get a good friend to help you out

9. Drink & Drive

The ‘drink & drive’ is one of the easiest car poses to recreate. The best part is that it’s totally legal!

Location: driver’s seat

  • Never drive while under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.

10. Strapped In

For this car pose, show everyone how good you look with a seatbelt on — because safety IS cute!

Location: front seats

Props: optional


  • The more far-fetched your pose, the funnier the photo

For this one, ask someone to stand outside your car while you look away or make eye contact with the camera.

17. Car Selfie

Of course, the famous car selfie (#carfie) had to make the list. As we mentioned earlier, it can get a little boring, so we’ll show you how to spice it up a bit.

But first:

What is a car selfie?

Just in case you don’t know, let’s first talk about what a car selfie is. (Hint: it’s exactly what it sounds like.) 

A car selfie is a close-up photo you take of yourself in the car. This photo is typically taken in the driver or front passenger seat but can be taken from the backseat too. 

How to make your car selfies more interesting:

The secret to spicing up your car selfies isn’t about the location — it’s all about the angles.

Don’t be afraid to play around with different angles until you find one that you love.

5 Important Tips for Taking Photos In Your Car

1. Don’t snap and drive

As tempting as it might be, please do not take pictures (or videos) while you are driving!

Taking your eyes off the road for even a second is risky and dangerous. 

Your life is worth way more than a hundred cute photos.

If you’re feeling cute and really want your picture taken, try one of these:

  • Pull into a parking lot and take your pics there
  • Ask someone in the passenger seat to take a picture for you.
  • Wait until you’re stuck in traffic to snap a photo, but first be sure it’s completely safe to do so. 

2. Use a car mount

A car mount makes it soo much easier to get your best angles while taking photos of yourself in the car. 

This one can be attached to your dashboard, windscreen, or steering wheel so that you can easily capture lots of cool photos at all the right angles.

3. Tidy up

A messy background can really kill a cute photo.

Your car doesn’t need to be spotless every time you want to take a quick selfie, but you’ll probably want to tidy up if you’re planning to post your photo anywhere

If you have difficulty keeping your car neat and clean, you’ll probably want to get a car bin and/or car organizer to keep your stuff neat and organized.

You’ll thank us later.

4. Check your lighting

We all know how important good lighting is to a photo.

Luckily, during the day, it’s easy to get lots of natural lighting from the car windows and windscreen, particularly if you’re in any of the front seats. 

If you’re in the backseat, you may want to face one of the windows or try sitting in the middle seat so you can benefit from the light from your windscreen.

If your windows are tinted, roll them down for a brighter photo, or keep them up for a more dark and sultry vibe.

At night, turning on the dome light or other interior lights can help to improve your car selfies.

5. Get comfortable

Believe it or not, if you’re not relaxed your photos just won’t look ‘right’.

That’s because the best (car) poses are the ones where you feel confident and comfortable.

So relax!

Find a location where you feel comfortable taking selfies, have plenty of time so you’re not rushing, and choose an outfit that makes you feel cute and confident. 

Next, try out all sorts of different car poses until you find your favorite.


Car selfies are iconic, but they can quickly get boring if you always have the same pose.
