about the founder


After years of working in the corporate world, I decided to embark on a new journey - becoming a stay-at-home mom! During this time I started doing airbrush tanning because, to be honest, I thought it would be a great excuse for me to always be tan, and for me to be able to tan my friends and family! Not long after I started, people kept asking me where I went on vacation, and commenting that I was looking "rested" and "glowing" - it was then that I knew I had to share the amazing confidence-boosting power of spray tanning with as many people as possible! That is how Shades was born. 

Not long after I started Shades I was introduced to Infinity Sun Products, and was hooked - they produce a superior organic airbrush tanning product that is used by celebrities and professionals all over the world. 

I love the sun and the way it makes me feel and look - but I also know that spending hours in the sun isn't the greatest for my skin (skin caner and wrinkles? No thank you!). Airbrush tanning is a wonderful, safe way to get that sunkissed glow that we all love, without worrying about harmful rays, wrinkles and sunburns. 

So whether you are prepping for an event, getting ready for a vacation, or just need a little pick-me-up, I guarantee that airbrush tanning is right for you!

And the best part? You NEVER have to worry about that fake orange-tan look. My airbrush tans are fully customizable, and we will match you with a shade that looks as natural, and as dark or light, as you want!

Looking forward to meeting you and making you feel, and look, GREAT!
