Our names are Dave and Lynn Roberts, co-owners of Spencer Studios. Why the name Spencer? Dave’s father, Spencer Roberts, bought him a Canon A1 35-mm camera when he was fifteen years old and he has never looked back. For nearly 40 years Dave has loved photographing nature, family and more. He has always enjoyed tuning out the distractions of the world and mentally escaping from his stressful corporate job with his camera. (He was able to quit corporate America in 2014 and focus on creating beautiful portraits for you!)
And now the details…Dave studied photography and videography at the University of North Florida and Florida State College at Jacksonville. He has been selling his nature and other fine art photography for many years and his photographs can be found on display in corporate offices and private homes. In 2014 Dave decided to move into portraiture. He has studied with several world-renowned photographers, and he specializes especially in portraying the emotional connection for couples and families.
Lynn had ten plus years experience working with expectant mothers, birthing mothers and postpartum new moms prior to co-founding Spencer Studios Jax. She has been a childbirth educator, doula, faciliatator of a new mom’s support group, clinic educator and even a houseparent for a girl’s home. She has also worked with preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school students at churches for about twenty years in Florida and Virginia. Lynn’s love for moms and their children is now integrated with her passion for photography. She has studied with internationally renowned newborn, child, and high school senior photographers. Her specialty is women and their children, from maternity through high school graduation.
