I met up with the Ohayon family last week while they were in town from Florida to celebrate Gali’s birthday and her Bat Mitzvah. Instead of a big party, all three kids chose to celebrate their B’nei Mitzvahs with a family trip. For Aryeh, the oldest, it was in Israel, for Tali it was San Francisco and for Gali, it was a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. For the first part of the day I met all three kids and their dad Kevin, near the top of Heavenly. Upon arriving at Heavenly a little early, I met a new friend Gary who saw me trying to make sense of the ski run map. He had been skiing at Heavenly for decades and was gracious enough to offer to give me a tour of some primo locations for photographs. The views at this resort are breathtaking!
Once Kevin and the kids arrived, we spent a couple of hours on the slopes and then met down at Zephyr Cove for a family session with mom, Rebecca. I loved the connection this family has and the support they showed each other all day long. Congratulations Gali and thanks to the Ohayon family for asking me to capture this milestone. Here are some of my favorites- your complete gallery will be ready soon!
