Après Divorce Events!
Our June event celebrates Après Divorce’s 1 year anniversary by turning up the heat on online dating. Navigating the waters, how do we go about it? We have the tools and people to show us how: profiles, photos, how to act, where to go and so much more. Our special guest, Dating Coach Ronnie Ann Ryan is the author of four books including Is He The One? Find Mr. Right by Spotting Mr. Wrong. Ronnie has been featured by such media outlets as ABC, NBC, Fox News, eHarmony, and CT Magazine just to name a few. Afraid of what’s behind someone’s profile? So is the other guy.
An online profile writing expert, Ronnie will share some tips that can turn the whole scary thought of online dating around. “It can be so aggravating when you know other women are meeting lots of men through online dating sites and you seem to be struggling. Or perhaps you are getting coffee dates, but they don’t lead to second or third dates, because who they expected, based on your profile isn’t who showed up at the coffee shop.”
Our sponsor tonight is Jane La Motta Fine Art Photography. Jane will share secrets to the profile photo that will get them interested. What about those other photos that we need…cool, fun, serious? So many choices. How do we decide? Jane will give us insight. Join us in the conversation. Have dating stories to tell? We want to hear them. Funny, absurd, it’s all a mystery. Let’s figure it out while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres. As always put on your highest heels, lipstick and come celebrate.
Our host for the evening Bespoke Design and Shari Lebowitz, Owner and Paperpreneur.

Jane La Motta of Fairfield, CT., is a professional portrait and event photographer. The daughter of a prolific abstract artist, Jane has studied various fine art disciplines her entire life. Jane began taking photographs 24 years ago following the birth of her first child. Her early years focused on mastery of film images, finding herself in a darkroom for hours at a time. However, she has embraced the digital age in photography. Originally specializing in hand printed family portraits, her friendly personality and creative view through the lens gradually led her to professional portraiture, wedding and bar and bat mitzvah celebrations. Although she prefers shooting in natural light, Jane also maintains an in-home studio with auxiliary lighting. Jane received her Bachelor of Arts from Rutger’s University and her Masters of Business Administration in Marketing from New York University. She went on to study photography at the International Center of Photography in NYC, the Silvermine School of Art in CT, and the Maine and Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. Jane has received numerous awards at the Norwalk Camera Club’s, Silvermine School of Art’s and Ridgefield Guild of Artist competitions.
A customer once said to me, “It’s easy to smile for you. It feels so natural.”
That was the most profound compliment I ever received and what, as a photographer, distinguishes me from all others. Naturally, warm and sensitive, I radiate those qualities when I’m shooting. My clients feel the warmth and as a result, their smiles become real and effortless. They sense my sincere happiness at being part of their photo session or event and in exchange, I reflect their joy back.
