    hmm, you don't back up the phone?  You should have automatic backup configured.

    Go to settings > accounts and backup and be sure backup is enabled.  If necessary you can restore your data/apps etc.. from the same spot, even if you get a different phone (assuming it's an android).

    For future safety purposes I'd strongly recommend you sign up for an online photo storing service.  If you're an Amazon Prime customer you get photo storage included with Prime.  There are other services such as, google photos, Flickr, etc... these usually have some subscription cost (<$5/month), but your photos are safely stored in the cloud where you will never lose them and you can access from any device connected to the Internet.
