Which camera should I get?

I've been using a Canon S2IS for the past year or so to take crappy pictures that would have been great with a better camera. Which one should I be saving for?

I have several people who would actually like to pay me to do some portrait work but until I get a better camera I feel unable to offer my services honestly.
I managed to do a wedding a few months ago with the Canon and the pictures were beautiful unless you looked too close. I need my next move to be to a camera that will produce images on a professional level and that I won't feel guilty being paid for.
I trust myself for the content but when it comes to clarity and low-light stuff, there's only so much I can do to correct on the Canon.
Is $2500-3000 a reasonable goal to get up to that level? I'm leaning toward the Nikon D200, but what do you recommend?
