Default Daughter's new budgie gender?

My daughter adopted this budgie last week. was told she was likely female, so she named her Violet. She posted some pics and got some replies that it might actually be a very young male. We've read all about determining gender, and it looks like this one both has a pink cere but also some white outlines? She'd like some input, both so she can decide what to name it for sure, and also so she can decide what gender to get if she gets a friend someday (we are training this one first though). Thanks!

The picture isn't the greatest as it's quite blury. Can you post a better pic of the cere, and in natural light? Make sure there are no shadows or glare and we will be happy to help ID gender.

This is with the sunlight shining on it. This is as close to what it looks like in person.

Thanks! Looks like there is quite a bit of white around the nostrils, indicating that this is a female.
