Android Update Deleted Favorited Photos!

My fairly new phone (only about two months old) completed an update a few nights ago, and one very negative change I’ve noticed is that my Favorites in the Photos app are gone! Not the actual images themselves, but they’re no longer favorites — when I tap on Library and then Favorites in the app, it simply says "No Favorites," which certainly was not true before the update.

Maybe for some people this isn’t a big deal, but I really rely on the photos I tag as favorites for easy reference. Does anyone here know why this might have happened, and if there is any way to get them back (other than just looking for them and doing it manually)? If not, is there any way to back up the favorites specifically in case this happens again?

I mean, to me, updates are supposed to help the user, not delete any aspect of his/her data!
