Re: Client care: Photography licensing question

As a professional photographer, have you never done a shoot, and then a later date, had someone else want to use them? Isn't part of photography, making licenses of pre-existing photos, and making your work 'work for you'?

Yes. Many times. 
If you want to share the photos with a third party, even if you are essentially giving them to the homeowner, be sure they are accompanied with a license specifying that they are for personal use only, and not for use by others without your express permission.
