With studio lighting you probably give up sharpness intentionally in post more than adding sharpening. If the primary goal was landscape the D800e would be the optimum choice but with 90% studio portraiture, I would stick with the D3s unless printing very large. Either the D800 e or non e would be well suited to printing large portraits.
I shoot a mix of subjects with a D800 but for about 1/2 of the subjects, there is no advantage to the D800 over other cameras if the light is decent. But when the light isn't, the added DR, and the D4 and D800 low light focusing are real stand outs.
For a business, the answer is simple: does changing increase the net income more than the cost of changing? What you have is beyond suitable for the task of senior portraits. You have the lenses and lighting that could make any camera look great.
