I've not used the Nokia N95 myself so this is a long shot.  When she 
connects the phone to her PC does it come up as a removable drive at all 
or does she have to use the Nokia PC Suite software?

If it comes up as a drive letter in Windows then hopefully you should be 
able to use a Windows undelete program such as Freeundelete -  

However if she has to use the Nokia PC Suite software then she may be 
out of luck.

I know it's not much help now but she might want to consider in the 
future to get a memory card for her phone (I presume MicroSD) and save 
any photos on the card.  That way if the worst does happen and she 
accidentally deletes any photos, or for instance if the phone dies then 
she could pop out the card and use it in a PC to get the photos back.

Good luck anyway, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
