Is it grammatically necessary to use any in the following sentence? Can I omit any in exams and formal writings in similar sentences and contexts?

Yesterday was mothers' day but I did not post (any) photos with my mother on social media. I think importance of my mother to my life cannot be described by just clicking pictures or posting them on social sites on mother's day.

You can leave out "any" quantifying a plural noun, which is not grammatically incorrect.

It is, however, advisable to insert "any" there to make it clearer.
