The first measurements of the differential cross section for the production of an isolated photon in association with at least two b-quark jets at Tevatron energy are presented in this thesis. The ratio of cross sections, (Z + 2 b jets)/(Z + 2 jets), for associated production of a Z boson with at least two jets is also measured. These results can be used to further tune theory and improve the description of background processes in studies of the Higgs boson and searches for new phenomena beyond the Standard Model.
