Ava Sambora's got a new gig.

Ava Sambora, daughter of longtime Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and actress/model Heather Locklear, is ramping up her modeling career. On Monday (June 13) in Malibu, photos of the 18-year-old showing off a barrage of bikinis in a shoot for Baes & Bikinis and 138 Water surfaced on the web.

The university student also posted the shots to her Instagram:

The elder Sambora left Bon Jovi in 2013, and got the opportunity to spend more time with his family; now it seems his daughter is diving into a career of her own. There is no indication Richie plans to rejoin the band on tour behind its new album.
