Install and run Total Commander. Turn the phone sideways (landscape mode. You'll have 2 windows. Open the left one (it's arbitrary, but if you're right-handed, copying left to right is more natural) to the /DCIM folder in internal storage. Open the right window to the external SD card (internal storage is named sdcard). Long-press the DCIM folder and drag it to the right window. Choose Copy, not Move. (If a copy operation blows up, you still have the original, if a move operation blows up you may lose the original and the copy.) Once it's done copying all the files (if you have a lot, it could take a while), check them all to make sure they copied correctly. (You should also have them backed up to a computer, cloud account or both.) If they have, long-press the folder in the left window (internal) and choose Delete.

If you just plug the phone into a PC or laptop and drag the DCIM folder from the phone to the computer, she'll have them all on her computer.
