    It's generally better to split the task into a multiple tasks. First I'd want to detect and extract faces. There are a number of pretrained models that you could use for that, e.g. https://github.com/timesler/facenet-pytorch, https://github.com/opencv/opencv/tree/master/data/haarcascades. Once you've extracted faces, you can train a facial recognition using something like a siamese network as you normally would.
