I was asked by my family, who own and run a boutique cafe’ and patisserie in Amman to capture this image. It’s a special recipe created by my family to promote the healthiness of the cafe’. They also wanted to capture it in a proper table set-up during the day. I wanted to incorporate all those elements, along with a good use of bokeh, to attract the viewer and provoke a sense of freshness and healthiness.
