Having a family photo go viral is a long shot, but to Pennsylvania College of Art & Design’s Continuing Education instructor Jeff Frandsen, it’s all in a day’s work.

Frandsen is a professional photographer and teaches social media photography classes at PCA&D, emphasizing what makes for engaging and memorable content, how to monitor your impact, and how often to share.

This fall, Frandsen asked his colleague, Lancaster photographer Sam Interrante, to take a holiday photo of his family, including, his wife Liz, infant daughter Emerson and their goldendoodle Frankie.

The moment  Interrante snapped the picture, Frandsen’s daughter grabbed her father’s glasses, resulting in capturing a one-of-a-kind moment that Frandsen knew was the perfect shot for sharing on social media.

The photo quickly went viral on Reddit and Facebook.

The story has been picked up by media across the country including Huffington Post, Good Morning America, and Inside Edition.
