Lost all my photos during an accidental factory reset, can they be recovered?

My toddler was messing with my phone and accidentally did a factory reset (the phone was locked so I have NO idea how he did this). Anyway I lost all my photos including the ones on my SD card. I did not back anything up on the cloud or google drive that I am aware of. Is there any hope of recovering these photos, especially from my SD card? I have an LG V10.

Without there being any sort of back-up implemented before the reset/deletion from the smartphone itself, I can't think of a way to recover the photos. Smiley Sad

Have you checked your Google account and verified the pictures weren't backed up?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Doubt you can get them back. google will give you unlimited storage for photos so you should take advantage of that from now on.
