You are out of luck on a picture - there is only one known contemporary portrait of the one of the early passengers to New Plymouth Colony, and it is of Edward Winslow.

The most definitive information on the passengers of the Anne and Little James comes from the Plymouth Colony Records, in the record of land apportioned to them in 1623 [PCR 12:5-6]. It lists 43 heads of household with some mentions of wives, children and servants.

Bradford, in "Of Plimoth Plantation," noted that the Anne and the Little James together had about 60 passengers. All of the published passenger lists are synthetic, as neither Bradford nor PCR provided definitive lists of the passengers. It is not always possible to tell which of the two ships a passenger came on - the two are often lumped together, as they are in the allotment of land in PCR.
