We all love those "derpy expression" photos of dogs. What's a derpy photo exactly? Well, we mean photos where dogs are making funny faces. So we mean photos like this:

That's one determined face. #toronto #dog #photography #dogstagram @dogsofinstagram

Today we saw a story about a Canadian photographer who specializes in taking photos like this, and we are obsessed with his work. It sounds like a dream career, right? The path for his career actually happened by accident, though.

Kevin Sarasom (the photographer) told BoredPanda.com that finding a niche for these photos was actually a fluke. "I was in my studio hanging out after a portrait session, and my ex-girlfriend's dog was hanging out on the backdrop," Sarasom told BoredPanda.com.  

Those photos had millions of views overnight so he says the rest was history. The website for his Toronto-based business, Off Leash Studio, describes their work as specializing in "capturing the unique personality of pets." We looked through their portfolio, and it is safe to say that we are totally obsessed with their work.

How cute is this?
