Does your phone have a removable micro-SD card for the photos?   If yes, you can remove the card, put it in a full-sized SD adapter, and pop it into a PC or card reader attached to a PC.   Then you can use the excellent shareware programme RECUVA to recover the photos.   I did this recently for a friend and recovered thousands of lost photos.

If all the above is meaningless to you, then ask a friend to help.   Have you considered the backup of your photos ?  Do you have a backup?    All phones, cards etc will fail (or be lost) finally; this is where backup come in.

Yes it does have a micro sd card, I have a Micro adapter for it. Don't think I had saved the photo to the sd card, but now back up photos to G* which works well now. Luckily I didn't lose family pictures, just some of a walking holiday.....thanks

If you haven't made a backup, you can have a try of data recovery methods, I think that is a good choice for data recovery. Anyway, if you really want the deleted data back, you should try every method, no matter they are free or paid. Those recovery tools can also have the possibility to recover deleted data I think.

Having also lost photos from my phone, I now have it set to back up to my Drive when it's on the wi-fi and charging, so basically anything new is backed up automatically everyday.

My version is Kitkat and have to swipe down to select the method of connection of the USB to the pc.

1. DO NOT USE THE PHONE. using the phone causes read/ write to memory which will reduce the chance of recovery by experts.

2. If she uses Google Photos or Google Drive or Dropbox, etc... check from the WEBSITE and see if the photo sync functions were enabled and sync was done to recover deleted photos from Android phone.

3. If confirmed really everything is only on the phone, then remove external card (if she uses it) and check from a PC to see if the camera apps was configured to save to memory card instead.
