My wife has an old Iphone (SE) with many pictures. 

Goal- To copy all her Iphone pictures to her Gmail new account that I created but she does not use.

Currently all her pictures on on her phone. (Hotmail account)

Question – What is the best method to send all her Iphone pictures to her new/additional account in Google?

The plan is then to remove many pictures from her Iphone and leave them in google photos.

Easily done …

Just install the Google Photos app on her iPhone and make sure the setting for Back up & sync is set to her new Google account. Then just watch the upload happen.
