“I SUCK with portraits. I really only enjoy nature, but nature doesn’t make any lens-money..”
Money aside, you should focus on what you love, and work on perfecting your nature shots (the ones you have are pretty good!). I started out trying to photograph everything, and soon worked out that I really dislike photographing events such as birthday parties and nightclub scenes. I no longer do them despite their potential for income, because not being miserable is worth more to me, lol. Ironically, I do enjoy weddings, but even those can only be done occasionally due to their incredibly stressful nature (and epic post-production workload).
My advice is to focus on the aspects of photography you enjoy, and develop a style/niche specific to you. If portraits aren’t your thing, don’t do them! 🙂
