Sir, is the image : (y+2)^2 = -(x+3). Using the fact that the line containing the image is perpendicular to the mirror and will have slope 1 we can consider some point on the image and putting that back in the equation of the parabola given to get the image.

(y+2)^2=-(x+3)
Assume the points on parabola, then find the image
After find image remove the parameter that we have assumed and the equation obtained will be our required image
