Try this at home folks...
Naomi made us parfaits for dinner last night. To make parfaits, layer vanilla yogurt, granola, and fresh blueberries in glass goblets. 

After Naomi completed the parfaits, I photographed them. To photograph parfaits, look for interesting, natural light (indirect light is better than direct sunlight). I set the parfait on the porch steps where the light created an interesting shadow with the stem of the goblet. 
Set your camera on the "Macro" setting (look for a tulip symbol). Compose the frame by focusing on the parfait, pressing the shutter release button half-way down to lock the focus, and repositioning the frame so that the parfait is not directly in the center of the frame. Press the shutter release button the rest of the way down to take your picture. Repeat until you are satisfied with your results or you are too hungry to continue.
