It's just the kitchen. Wife says she needs a pro headshot/ 3/4 shot, but that it can't "look" like she got it professionally done in a studio.

No - but if you have to ask .. it may be to you.
You can mask the background and blur it more.

Background is fine, but it looks too "professional" to me.

When I read the title and saw the photo, my first thought was that you posted the wrong photo. ;) Background is not an issue. Great shot.
