Just thought I would take a shot at the first picture. Tried to get a studio look. Cropped to 5x7 to eliminat a lot of the background. Use Neat Image to eliminate 1/2 of the noise. Adjusted color slightly, removed red eyes, whitened teeth, slight gaussian blur on the skin, replace the background.

the main points here were digital camera noise removal.
jpg artifact removal.
lighten/darken brush
clone
push
high pass sharpen (at a very low setting)
darkening the background with a fill/mask layer.
color balance adjustment layer
brightness/contrast adjustment layer
a thousand little touches.
