Happy birthday, Jasmine Sanders! The five-time SI Swimsuit model and fashion influencer turns 32 today, and to celebrate, we’re going to take a look back at her time with the brand over the years.

Named Rookie of the Year in 2019 after her first-ever photo shoot with the brand in Costa Rica, the German-born model has returned to the publication each year since. She traveled to Bali for her sophomore feature and landed the cover after being photographed by Yu Tsai in Bali. In ’21, she reunited with the same photographer in Tampa, Fla., while last year’s feature took place in Belize with the very same visual artist. For the ’23 SI Swimsuit Issue, Sanders was photographed in Puerto Rico by Ben Watts.

“I am so excited to be here in Belize. It’s my third [photo shoot] now with Yu Tsai, and it’s gonna be incredible,” Sanders said while on location last year. “He really helps you with movements and everything on set, so I’m in good hands.”

Below are 10 of our favorite images from Sanders’s incredible photo shoot in Belize.
