We have found a new, bigger space with even more windows and gorgeous natural light, and we are only a few blocks away from our old space. The new studio is located in the Abdiana Firestone Building. Everything you love about BrushCo has been moved over to this new space. You can choose from 30 paper backdrop colors for both rooms now. The new studio is all white with an accent black and grey wall. The studio has concrete floors with 10-morning east-facing windows and 2 north-facing windows with a view of downtown. The studio is now handicap accessible with a public elevator!


  • Open 7 Days a week, 7am-10pm by appointment only.
  • $85 an hour or $65 for 30 min (Schedule here)
  • Discounted hours can be purchased here in bulk for cheaper and used anytime. No expiration or monthly charges. (this can not be purchased or used for commercial productions)


  • One Optional Paper Backdrop is included with your hourly rental.
  • 30 Minute Rentals do NOT include a backdrop color. You are renting the space "as is." There may be random paper pulled down or pulled up. If you want to ensure no paper is down or want a specific color, add it to your booking.
  • No backdrop (white wainscot doors) counts as a backdrop. Suppose you want the paper pulled up or down during your rental. In that case, it will count as an additional backdrop color due to the hiring of studio managers coming twice for set-ups and tear-downs. We hope you understand.
  • One 60-watt continuous LED light with 36 in a softbox for soft light is ready for your shoot. Plug it in. 
  • Studio chairs, stools, ladders, boxes, pompous grass, bed, fabrics, and newborn props.
