It mostly just takes practice but heres some advice.
If you are just starting it make sure you have new tape on your blade as that will make it easier to do. If you are a righty place the puck in front of you and a little to the right. They key is getting your stick as low to the ground as possible. Cup the puck near the heel of your blade, and in a quick smooth motion you need to pull towards you roll your wrists quickly to pick up the puck. Try it on the backhand as well, I found it easier when I started to pick the puck up backhand michigan style first. Like anything in hockey though, its all about practice.
