Lens for Nikon D7100 for portraits

Have recently made investment in DSLR and going through all the jargons, learning it and loving it. Its for hobby purpose.

Taken a Nikon D7100 and Sigma 18-35 1.8 as my first Lens.

I am not ready for having too many lenses right now. As I am learning, I am considering mostly using Sigma one for daily purpose(Landscapes/Architecture/Street).

But I want to have headshots/portraits for family/friends. I think I don't have much purpose for zoom lenses right now (not into Wild photogrpahy). Those gives flexibilty but I think its not for me.

I am thinking of Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S one. The other option is 50mm 1.8/1.4. Or any other good one from Sigma etc.

I want to stay below $500 but let me know it anything else is purely awesome.

Also let me know some good online learning resources.

Will be thankful for some wisdom.
