Bokeh refers to the aesthetic effect of the blurriness of the background.
It also refers to the circular orbs or dreamy shapes and colors that the lenses render by out-focusing the light.
To get that neat circles bokeh effect, background should be out of focus light sources and foreground should have little light to lit up the subject’s face.
It would also be helpful that subject is far away from the light sources to make the background more blurred and the lens would render more neat circles.
The sizes of light orbs would vary on the distance of the subject from the light sources. If you want bigger orbs, the subject should be closer to the light sources.

Aperture plays a big role in achieving the bokeh effect. The higher the aperture or the lower the f-number, the more the background will blur.
The lens used in this photoshoot has an f number of 1.8. If your lens has a higher f-number, you can increase the distance of the subject and the light source to achieve the desired bokeh.
