Ariel Meredith’s Debut SI Swimsuit Photo Shoot in Mexico Will Give You All the Nostalgic Feels

The model was featured in the magazine five separate years.

Ariel Meredith was photographed by Matt Jones in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Ariel Meredith made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2009 and doubled-dipped in ’12 with a gorgeous photo shoot in Panama and another in Apalachicola, Fla. She returned the following year for a body painting feature in the Bahamas with fellow model Nina Agdal and photographer Walter Iooss Jr., as well as a secondary photo shoot in Spain. In ’14, the 36-year-old was captured in Switzerland, and she traveled down Route 66 for her most recent photo shoot with the brand in ’15.

Meredith is married to former New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. The couple shares a daughter, Aveila, and a son, Amir, and have a third baby, a boy, due in October.

The Louisiana native previously revealed to SI Swimsuit that she’s not only talented in front of the camera but also desires to work behind the lens.

“The talent that I would love to have, I would love to actually be in photography or behind the scenes, like a fashion stylist,” she said. “I think I would be really good at that.”

Below are seven of our favorite photos from her debut SI Swimsuit photo shoot.
