How to retrieve files from a Samsung Galaxy S III mini with a broken screen?

My phone screen was recently smashed to the point in which it works, but you cant see the screen. Not all my photos where saved to an SD card and are stuck on the phone. I was using the Google Photos app but am not sure if i backed up so i may not be able to recover them. I plugged the phone into my computer and it recognizes it being there with the sound but will not show up in the files section, so i am unable to access it. Are there any ways of being able to get my photos of the phone, or is it not possible.

Thanks for the help!!
