Is it possible to grant the license of photos before the commissioned shoot?

I'm being commissioned to photograph 10 animals for a breeder of reptiles and I am in the process of making the license.

Most license templates I see, include either clear descriptions/titles(what does that mean?) of the image or have an attachment of the printed files themselves.

So to my understanding I explain that at first, my creative fees are paid to commission the shoot, then after will the licensing fees be paid. Is this correct information?

Does the release have precedence over the license?
