Answer:

If you are experiencing issues like crashes, missing thumbnails, failed imports, missing photos, etc. you can try repairing your Photo Library. Before getting started, it's best to backup your Mac as a precaution. Once that's done, quit the Photos app on your Mac. Then restart the Photos app and hold down Command and Option while it's launching. A dialog will appear giving you a choice between "Repair" and "Quit". Proceed with the repair (it might take a while) and hopefully your issues will be resolved after it finishes.
