You want a lens that'll give you good perspective as well as a good working distance so you won't make your model feel uncomfortable. For that reason, a short telephoto lens would be a great choice.
Natural light is popular as it's free but it can be unpredictable and you don't have as much control over it as you do with flash. For this reason, flash is a great option. There are plenty of lighting accessories available but one option is to use a flashgun mounted on a stand with a modifier of some sort to create a nice light.
If you like to adjust your lights and find it easier to explain poses to your model by demonstrating them, use a tripod. Many portrait photographers do use then, even when they're using flash, so it is worth considering. However, the flip side is that working handheld gives you total freedom of movement and you will be able to shoot quicker too. Shooting quicker can create pace which makes the shoot more fun for both you and your model.
