The First 3 pics are Normals, the last 2 pics are Albinos.

Yeah they dont look striking enough to be called Miami's or Motley albino. I would just call them three normals and two amelanistic albinos.

The first three look like Normals to me too.

Of the last two, I would say the first one is an Amelanistic Striped Motley and the second one an Amelanistic Motley.

To confirm whether they are in fact motley or not, check their bellies; if the bellies are white, they are Motley, if the belly is checkered with orange/pink/ they are just Amels.

The top one looks like it could be a light coloured caramel, but it's also possible the pic is a bit off colour, so it might in fact be a normal. The second one in my opinion is a Hypo (a nice red one). The snake in pic 3 looks like it's about to shed, so it's hard to see it's true colours - otherwise I would say it's a normal.

First amel (pic 4) looks like it has a nice aberrant pattern (possibly Aztec). And the 2nd amel is a motley.

Shows how much I know. Been out of the corn market for far too long.
