What is De fotograferende huisvader?
When you translate the Dutch words De fotograferende huisvader it will come up with The photographing family father. Instead of family father, you can also use the words stay at home dad. That is what I am.
My name is Harm Jagerman and I am a stay at home dad, photographer, writer and website developer / designer.
The name De fotograferende huisvader / The photographing family father is a wink to how I combine my work life with my personal life. I try to plan my business activities around the children. Should it be a problem for my clients, I can always shift my agenda.
Because I am a father of two children, I know what it’s like when a child has to be in a photograph.
I am officially registered with the Chamber of Commerce, so it is not a hobby project.
I live with my family in Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk, near Leiden. My family consists of Hinke, Dante (2008) and Thisbe (2011). Hinke is the one who works full time.
Where does the name come from?
The name can be traced back to another platform that I use to publicize. That is De Goede Huisvader. Since 2014 I have been writing about my life as a stay at home dad.
