Morea Steinahuer – Photojournalist bio picture

A little insight into Morea...

Whether it be documenting community actions, protests, or other social justice actions - or it be photographing the day in the life of a family, commitment and celebration of partnerships and weddings, or birthing stories, I believe that being able to tell someone's story is a powerful gift, especially doing so non-obtrusively.  I specialize in media and social justice work, but also enjoy documenting weddings, families, births, and daily life.

Based in downtown Manhattan, but born and raised on a family farm in the northwest corner of Minnesota and a lover of food, travel, and embracing new experiences.  I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) in 2006 with a BA in American Studies and a BS in Individualized Studies in Photography Arts in Business and in 2009 pursued a masters degree in Gender and Peacebuilding at the UN Mandated University for Peace (Costa Rica).

I use my passions in photojournalism, mutual mentorship, and social activism to mentor and guide individuals to express their stories and life journeys. I have extensive experience as a photojournalist, providing support for students within university settings, assisting individuals with disabilities, and mentoring individuals through personal and professional growth and transformation (such as nonviolent communication, conflict transformation, etc).  My work within media and social justice has lead to collaborative projects within North & Central America, the Caribbeans, and locations like Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Haiti.  

But nothing makes my heart smile like when I get to photograph the celebration of love an union. Destination weddings have taken me throughout the USA (primarily in the upper Midwest, East Coast, and South), Italy, Switzerland, Costa Rica, and Canada with upcoming weddings in Australia, Egypt, and Mexico.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work ... and feedback always welcome! Contact me at: as I am always open to exploring potential collaborations and projects.  -m   |   701.388.0934   |

Flamenco Dancers at NDSU

In early September (2009.09.12) the ED of Centro Cultural de Fargo-Moorhead was asked to be a Master of Ceremony (basically do the introductions) for the kick off of Hispanic Heritage Month, so we went and enjoyed the event. NDSU hosted Flamenco dancers and we had a delightful time watching, listening, and participating in lively music.

Meet Sam

Sam is one cute little man. He’s also one impressive little guy who during doctor visits ranks in the 100 percentile (in all the things that they measure babies on). Even though only Mo had the privilege of meeting this little guy over Labor Day weekend back in September, it was a great time. Sam […]
