Specializing in outdoor family photography

About Lifetime Treasures Photography

Colleen A. Gallagher, Photographer/Chicago native

I didn't plan on becoming a photographer, it just sort of happened. I took an interest in photography while in high school, and I'm still creating Lifetime Treasures over 30 years later.

Being a mother of four children, all one year apart, gave me the perfect opportunity to hone my skills. If there is a theme to my work it is that I tend to enjoy capturing true family love and laughter in a natural outdoor setting.
