The image is a close shot of a woman whose body and eyes and straight at the camera and her body is posed slightly angled away. The background is unfocused and othing is dstingishable, suggesting this photo is a professional headshot. The woman is wearing a white blouse with a purposefully-crinkled collar. This blouse is under a blue jacket with gold trim. She has light brown eyes and equally mousy brown hair cut to a medium length. The hair is brushed slightly back and falls down to her shoulders.
