Six-time SI Swimsuit model Emily DiDonato made her brand debut a decade ago, and we’re still obsessed with the photos from her 2013 photo shoot in Namibia.

The Covey skincare founder returned the following three years and was captured in Switzerland, Hawai’i and Turks and Caicos. After a three-year hiatus, she was photographed again in 2020 and again in ’21.

“There are these standards that are kind of put on us to look a certain way,” the mom of two said while on location during her most recent feature in Sacramento. “I know that it’s so hard to not let them consume you and hard not to think about them all the time, but they take up so much mental and emotional space and just keep you down. If you allow yourself to free up that space, you’ll find out how much you’re capable of.”

Below are our favorite images from each of DiDonato’s SI Swimsuit features over the years.
