This is only a recent phenomenon, I think she's learned that when I pick her up, it's the end of fun time.
Grab her collar and give her a treat and release her to play. Repeat that a few times, always grabbing slowly and from the side/underneath. Then work on grabbing from over her head. Then work on grabbing faster. Always with a treat, always releasing her to play afterwards. Then grab her collar, leash her, give her a treat, unleash her and let her play.
