How can I make a user-upload for a lightbox?

I'm building a website for a local tattoo shop. Everything else on the website is finished, but they want me to set it up so that they can easily upload and delete their own photos without having to call me every time or having to go into the code. I've made an employee login, but how can I make a lightbox CMS so that they can just point and click to add and remove images to their individual galleries?

Or if I duplicate the gallery, what JS functions would I use to remove images or add images and the required HTML for the CSS to apply without having to go into the code?

Easy: Set them up with a twitter account and link to their twitter account from the website.

Medium: WordPress Plugins

Hard: Password protected site to alter an 'images' folder

I'm going for the hard method. They're trying to steer clear of social media because the owner doesn't like it. I've got everything set up, but once they login, what methods would I use to make the gallery editable?
