High key traditionally means that in the shot, the preponderance of tones is lighter than neutral gray. Your shot, though quite charming with your young model, does not conform to that definition. Nevertheless, it's a nice shot.

Well, that's one definition. But there are others, such as here:

Note the black-body camera in a high-key shot.

It isn’t high key, even by his own definition. It has a hot white background, and that is it. If this image is high key, then any image with a white background would be high key.
