    Unfortunately, imported photos are not saved to iCloud.

    The only exception will be any you added to a Photostream - they will be in the cloud until removed from the last device that subscribes to that Photostream.

    God luck, I sympathize with one-off memories gone.

    There are programs that might be able to recover those pictures from your camera's flash drive if you haven't overwritten any new pictures yet.

    No, iPhoto does not back anything up in the cloud. Except if you used a photostream, but even then, they would be low quality shots.

    Not trying to add insult to injury, but for precious files like that, having no back up is really stupid.

    Assuming you have a dSLR, and you still have the memory cards, and you haven't shot too many photos after you erased those you are interested in, you might be lucky and get some photos back by recovering them.
    If those and's are satisfied, you can try attaching a card reader to a computer, inserting the card and use, on Windows, this:

    Good luck.

    Unfortunately unless you get your Mac back, it seems like there's no way of retrieving your DSLR photos. For future reference though, you should back up your photos; I've connected my iPhoto to Flickr and always make sure to upload my pics as soon as they have been transferred. It's 1TB of free storage, and you can completely lock your photos to private.

    Here's hoping you manage to find a lead!
