Dramatic Light: High-key Portrait

Challenge #25 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
In portraiture, the term "high-key" refers to an image with lots and lots of light. It's not about overexposing the image, but about washing the subject in a light that all but eliminates shadows. High-key portraits typically present white (or light colored) backgrounds. Demonstrate your understanding of high-key portraiture. Note Additional rules.
