The faces all look really soft. Did you make every thing but the eyes blurry in post? If so, I don't think it looks good. When people say focus on the eyes, that doesn't mean just get the eyes you want face too.
Don't add blurring to the face. I've never seen that before! The first shot is a decent composition but it does look a little flashed because of the dark background. I'd probably just shoot natural light here. For the second, I'd tighten or loosen the crop just a bit to avoid cropping at the chest.
I agree, if you added the out-of-focus softness with processing take it out!
