Looks like a fun shoot but the main thing I would be careful about is the intensity of your lighting. Unless it was intentional you lost of a lot of details (especially with the hair) and have to be careful especially people with light colored hair/fair skin.

I suppose there are only a couple where the detail is lost, but I am not concerned about that to be honest! Kinda the effect I was looking with it being high key!

As I said earlier if it was intentional (since you were going for a high key effect) then it's fine.

I reckon they were quite happy with these. I also think you should have the girl in #10 & #13 (my favs from this set) back for an individual session & let me know when you post them. The camera loves her & it seems like she doesn't mind it either.

She kind of has a Heather Lockear vibe in #12...

IMO the contrast is way too high on many these.
They are not high key. You have a lot a places on these images that are either blown out or right on the edge. A little more PP here and there would have helped. A little trouble with color. A lot of these are a bit pink. It is a common problem. If you don't have a light meter and want to do a lot of this kind of work, you will find it extremely helpful.
I like the head shots best. Looks like everyone did have fun!

I like them a lot, good poses, great smiles and fun. What I dont like is everyone being on the over exposure kick.

She certainly stands out. My thought would be to clone out the pimple/ blemish on her chest, it adds nothing to the image.

Noticing it or doing it?

I am interested to know what your definition of high key is!? From any reading and research I have done these are as close to high key as I can get.

I have a calibrated Apple Cinema screen and the only one that has a pink element to it is #4 but that is intentional. I do have a light meter but cant see what difference that will make considering the high key look I am intending to produce.

Thanks for your comments.

I am assuming you like the high key then!?

No I dont really like high key a whole lot. Or the over exposure of shots.

High key done as high key can put out some very beautiful images. Its just seems lately everyone is taking normal shots and cranking the exposure in them.

Now dont get me wrong, by looking at these you shot them this way. So Im not saying that you cranked yours up. These are beautiful girls, and I'd just like to see a little more detail of them.
