For portrait work you should take a look at the AF-S 50mm f/1.8 and AF-S 85mm f/1.8, though the 85 might be getting too long for full length portraits unless you stand way back.

If you prefer a zoom then the AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6 VR DX is good for the money, but you will not get the shallow depth of field of the above lenses unless you are at the long end of the zoom, and so even further away from your subject.
