Blue Ivy Carter has her first photo shoot. For the first time since she was born last month, proud parents, Beyonce and Jay Z, have released close up pictures celebrating the birth of their daughter.
"We welcome you to share in our joy," reads a note - from The Carter Family posted on the microblogging site Tumblr where baby Blue's pictures are posted. Larger pictures are posted on Jay-Z's lifestyle website Life + Times.
The five photos include intimate shots with both Jay-z and Beyonce snuggling the newborn close whose long black hair frames her light brown skin.
Although she is too young to know it, Blue Ivy has had a very productive first month on earth.
For starters, she has made Billboard chart music history by being the youngest person to be credited on the Billboard charts.
Billboard reported that Jay-Z song "Glory" Featuring B.I.C (Blue Ivy Carter) debuted at No. 23 in the Rap song category.
Blue Ivy made her rap debut toward the end of the track - audio of her crying in the background.
In the song, Jay-Z raps: "The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can't describe the feeling for real." He adds, "Baby, I'll paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you."
Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter on Jan. 7 in New York.
