You mentioned the McBeth Color checker and the Color abstract. If that is the case then I still am not sure the gray step wedges are all that important. Are the portraits you print consistently correct? If so then the gray step wedges are not all that important. I have spent a lot of years making color photographic prints. Whenever I tried to color balance with a gray card the image would not quite match. When I got the image correct the gray card would be off. I threw the gray card away and color balanced the image. The image was what was important in the end. That is what I sold to the customer. The customer wanted good skin tone not good gray cards.
